A Child Born Without 50% Of Her Skull

A baby girl; Okiki(Jesu) was born to the
Olawuyi’s in Ibadan, oyo state, Nigeria,
with a rare medical condition subsequently
diagnosed as ‘Congenital Cranial
Deficiency’. In other words, she was
delivered with at least 50% of her skull
unformed. For the Olawuyi’s, that day
marked the beginning of a 3year struggle
against stigmatization, discrimination &
near hopelessness.
After rejections from several hospitals
around the world, renowned neurosurgeon
at the Johns Hopkins Medical International
hospital, Baltimore, Maryland; Dr. Ben
Carson agreed to lead a team of surgeons
in performing a skull reconstruction surgery
on 3 year old Okiki. After a review of her
case history, the tentative cost of Okiki’s
surgery was put at US$234,000 (Two
hundred and thirty four thousand United
States dollars). On receiving this estimate,
GIPLC reached out to her local network of
donors and phenomenally raised this sum
of money in approximately 72hours.

3 year old Okiki and her parents under
stewardship of Coordinator and Project
Director of GIPLC journeyed to the US on
May 4th 2013 to undergo her skull
reconstruction surgery which was
scheduled for the 22nd of May 2013 at the
Johns Hopkins Medical International.
However, complications have occurred
following her over 14 hour’s initial surgery,
as a result of inconsistencies in her medical
history, in addition to the fact that it was a
maiden attempt in paediatric
neurosurgery. This has led to a further
accumulation of medical bills totalling over
US$500,000 (Five hundred thousand
United States dollars), a figure that
increases with each passing day Okiki
spends at Johns Hopkins.
Prior to the complications which have
arisen, what made a determination of the
full cost of Okiki’s surgery difficult is that in
modern times, it is an extremely rare
(perhaps singular) medical condition with
no precedence to draw indicators from.
This latter fact also means that it is equally
difficult to tell what other medical
complications may arise; just like the fluids
that were retained in her cranial cavity has
posed an unforeseen challenge and may
have led to a fatal infection.

As Okiki may not be released from hospital
until all outstanding bills have been paid on
one hand, and as we and her parents are
desirous of her condition being fully
remedied before she does leave the
hospital on the other, we would like to
appeal to the global public to support our
cause in ensuring that Okiki gets a full
chance at life.

we pray that this little will leave to achieve
God's plan for her life.

10 Most Common Dreams and Their Meanings

Dreams are your companion when you sleep. They say, if you do not dream, you are missing on imagination. Plus, science says, the more you dream, the better it is. According to some positive thinkers, one should dream big to achieve big. Well, believe it or not, most of the people in the world dream a lot.

But, dreams vary with your mood, state of mind, your psyche, and much more. Why is it that I always see someone chasing me and why is that my friend always feels he is falling continuously. Well, I am talking about the type of dreams people usually see. They say that every dream has a meaning attached to it! Today, I bring you 10 of the most common dreams and their respective meanings. Connect yourself, if you can!

10 Most Common Dreams and Their Meanings

1. Being Chased

If you often dream that someone is chasing you, it means that your subconscious mind is indicating that you have been avoiding something/someone that is painful or frightening to you. Going deeper into the dream, what matters more is who is chasing you and what is your relationship with that person. Do you know that person?

2. Falling

It is one of the most common dreams people have reported – falling and falling and continuing to call. It could possibly mean that things are not going right in your life. According to some specialists, it could also be an indication from your subconscious mind that something in your life is going in a terribly wrong direction. More or less, people suffering from depression have reported falling in their dreams.

3. Losing Teeth

Specialists say that losing teeth could indicate loss in confidence. It could also mean that you are worried about your outlook and are concerned about a particular feature of your body.

4. Dying

A lot of people report seeing themselves (or their close relatives) dead in their dreams. A lot of dream interpreters say that death in dream could symbolize a new start or spiritual transformation. Seeing someone close as dead in dream could mean that you are parting ways with that person emotionally.

5. Water

Dreaming about water is considered good by some experts, as it symbolizes purification, change, and transformation of life. Going deeper into this, what decides further interpretation is whether you’ve seen a big water body, flowing river, waterfall, whether you are offer/receiving water, etc.

6. Being Cheated On

The best and the worst thing about dreams is that they are involuntary; so, you can actually dream almost anything! Dreams can express what is inside your mind. If you have dreamt about your partner cheating on you, don’t worry! Experts say that it can happen out of jealousy and you should not take such dreams seriously. Instead, you need to spend more time with each other!

7. Snakes

A lot of people have reported seeing snakes in their dreams. Experts say that it could symbolize a hidden threat that you need to take care of. If you see snake shedding its skin, it could mean renewal or a new start.

8. Being Late

Students often dream that they have run late to take their vital exam; office-goers often seem themselves as reaching late to office! Such a dream could indicate your anxiousness about your work or what you are about to come across in the near future (in terms of work).

9. Can’t Shout

People have reported dreams where they find themselves as mute. They say that they want to shout and raise an alarm, but they are unable to (in their dream). Such a dream could indicate that you are not able to express fully and something is stopping you to achieve your goals. One should take such a dream seriously and start working towards his/her goals. Even if you haven't experienced such a dream, you ought to move towards your goals, unstoppably!

10. Celebrity

People often report seeing themselves as a celebrity in dreams. They also see themselves performing on stage and surrounded by people. These dreams could be result of watching excess of television and excessive use of internet. The idea is that when you go to bed with a pre-occupied mind, you dream accordingly!

Some crazy law around the world!!

1. It is illegal to leave your house if you are not wearing any underwear

1. If you are caught dropping litter more than 3 times, the penalty is to clean the streets on Sundays wearing a bib saying “I am a litterer”. This will then be broadcast on the local news.
2. Ever thought that chewing gum could land you in jail? Well, in Singapore, it has been completely illegal since 1992. The only exception is nicotine gum, but even then smokers can only get it from a pharmacy with a prescription. Chewing gum is legal in New York, of course, but cinema owners there must chisel all gum off the undersides of their auditorium seats every month. Makes trodden-in popcorn seem positively pleasant.


1. It is illegal to drive a dirty car

Laos :
1. Women may not show their toes in public

1. Children as young as 15 can be jailed for cheating on exams

1. A pregnant woman can legally urinate anywhere including in a policeman’s helmet.

1. If a car is overtaking a horse-drawn carriage and the horse becomes agitated, the driver must pull over and if necessary cover the car from the horse’s view.

a. Flushing the toilet after 10pm in an apartment building is illegal there.
b. The Government curiously considered noise pollution to be more anti-social than olfactory pollution.

Bermuda :
a. It is illegal to drive over 20 m.p.h.
b. It is illegal to take a suitcase on a public bus
