Veteran Nollywood actress Maureen Okpoko has fervently pleaded with Nigerians to help her after she unexpectedly lost her sight.
The actress, who made the call in a viral video on the internet, warned that if she didn't get immediate medical help, she would completely lose her sight.
The ill actress explained that she needed to contact Nigerians because she needed money to pay for treatment for blindness and vision impairment.
In her words, ”living with vision loss has been challenging, but I’m grateful to God for the gift of life." I suddenly lost my sight, which means I can no longer see or can’t see for now.
”I’m seeking your financial assistance. It would be greatly appreciated if you all could come to my aid. Also, I need your prayers and words of encouragement; it has not been an easy journey for me, but I’m grateful for the gift of life. Thank you all.
Okpoko has appeared in many Nigerian television series, including Baby Oku, Red Scorpion, Clinic Matters, University Mafias, Sorrowful, Dear Mother, and others.
The 62-year-old Anambra-born actress also starred in many Nollywood films such as Matured Games, Crazy Temper, Enemy of Light, The Banker, Wasted, Falling, One Room, Labour Room, and The Duplex, amongst others.
