A strange disease has infested the children of a couple in Area Four, a suburb of Sunyani, and left the family of five in a serious traumatic condition.

Naomi Pomaa, a-38-year-old petty trader, and Sampson Yeboah, a-45-old-old taxi driver, said they were currently in state of dilemma and disbelief as their three children – two girls, and a boy were gradually becoming blind.

When our correspondent visited the family over the weekend , the eye condition of Sandra Aniwaa, 19, Gloria Pomaa Yeboa, 13, and Lansford Acheampong Yeboah, a-four-year -old boy  had worsened.

The children, who were growing in obesity, with their skin becoming deep black, could not see well and their “whitish eyeballs” were having voluntarily movements.

They however had lean legs and broad chest as they grow.

According to their parents, all the children were born in a hospital without defects, but their conditions developed as they grow.

Mrs Naomi told our correspondent they have sent the children to the Regional Hospital in Sunyani, but they were referred to the Kumasi Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) Doctors examined the children but say they had no medical problem.

A copy of a medical form issued at the KATH, and signed by one Cobbinah Kyei, a retuning clinician said Aniwaa was suffering from fundus-micro disease with tiny bold vessel.

But, Mr Yeboah the father of the children said the family had visited KATH on several occasion and little attention was given them an their sick children at the hospital.

He said the family could not sit unconcern for their children to go blind, but the problem was above them, and appealed to the government, corporate bodies, NGOs and CSOs, as well as philanthropic organizations to come to their aid and save the life of the children.

Mr Yeboah also appealed for prayers from churches and religious organisations for God’s intervention to reverse any possibly family, or trans-generational curse.
