Videos: Kate Henshaw to refund money she solicited from the public for the treatment of baby born with cancerous growth on his face

Actress Kate Henshaw Wednesday evening took to her IG page to announce that she and the NGO she has been working with, ProjectAlert, would be refunding monies she solicited from the public for the treatment of baby Michael Alvez who has a cancerous growth on his face. Kate and the Project Alert team have been having a running battle with Michael's family over who manages the money.
According to Kate, instead of her allowing the family have direct access to the money which is quite substantial, she would rather refund the money to those that have donated towards the treatment of the baby.
All attempts to make the family understand her point of view have proven abortive.  Kate says  the family have overtime resorted to pouring insults on her, her daughter and the founder of Project Alert, Josephine.

Michael is the last child of a sex worker identified as Mary who has four other children from four different men. Kate got involved in March last year after she was tagged with the baby and the mother's photo on twitter.

Out of compassion, she asked for them to be found and decided to use her personality to draw attention to his plight. Initially Mary refused to cooperate with Kate as she had always used Michael to beg for alms on the road. Threatened with an arrest, Mary decided to cooperate. She abandoned Michael in the hospital when his condition deteriorated. Watch videos of Kate making the sad announcements after the cut


A FACEBOOK PAGE WITH THE NAME : ALVEZ MICHAEL HAS BEEN OPENED! PLS TAKE NOTE THAT NEITHER PROJECT ALERT OR KATE HENSHAW HAS ANY ASSOCIATION WITH IT!! WE NEVER OPENED A FACEBOOK PAGE BEFORE NOW.. .................................... We are giving a window of 2 MONTHS for all who would like a refund to contact @ProjectalertVaw, @josephine_effah_chukwuma with evidence of payment. .....................................

However, from 20k donations upwards you will receive a 50% refund. From 19k downwards will receive 100% refund of your monies donated.. My friends who donated through me please be in touch.

Part 3 This is my last post for the day.. If I say my heart is not pained, I would be lying! I have a daughter and I know the pain I would feel if she was in the condition Baby Michael was.. Sadly greed and avarice took over.. Insults to my daughter, Josephine of Project Alert and her family and I is what we have endured but let God alone be the impartial judge.. ......................... Please get in touch with Project Alert or I, uf you require your Refund. Anyone who donated through me and would not want their money back please still get in touch.. I intend to support the work @ProjectalertVaw is doing to help abused women and children.. You have a window of 2 MONTHS to reach out with proof of payment. AGAIN I AM GRATEFUL TO PROJECT ALERT, JOSEPHINE EFFAH-CHUKWUMA FOR BEING CREDIBLE AND TRANSPARENT AND TO ALL OF YOU WHO HEARD MY CRY FOR HELP AND DONATED!! GOD BLESS YOU ALL..

I dont think it's right go Kate to do this . Two wrongs can't make a right . Have a change of heart and don't allow people's misbehavior cause you go misbehave . What if this boy dies during this period . Please use the police and child welfare and take the boy to the clinic if you don't trust the mum enough . Giving back the money to donors isn't the best option dear .

JUDE ANTHONY said...

Kate please return the money, maybe that family want to divert the money that made for treatment for there own personal use. People are very difficult to manage and thank you for your efforts.

Fortune Ogege said...

PLEASE FOR THE SAKE OF THIS LITTLE CHILD PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT ABANDON YOUR EFFORTS IN HELPING CHILD .YOU HAVE STARTED A GREAT WORK TO HELP. NO MATTER WHAT THE FAMILY ARE TRYING TO DO.PLEASE HANG ON PLEASE.

JUDE ANTHONY said...

Kate please return the money and forget those greedy bunch of people, as you know that people are very difficult to manage even if you want to kill yourself for them. Thank very much for your efforts and God bless you

Do the needful,you are doing it for God not for the mother,dont be discourage rather be encourage the wellbeign of that child is in your hands.do the needful

Asampokoto said...

So ... the boy will die? Because of his mum's behaviour? Makes no sense. All I see is pride.
It's all about the boy isn't it? See it to the end then.

Sweetchild Sweet said...

Kate in your good heart pls treat the innocent child. You will never be excused or exonerated if the child meets with a bad fate.May the True God strengthen you as you embark on this journey...We are all behind you. Forget that oloshi olosho woman..

What is the end game of the family? I don't get it at all. They should be more concerned about the health of the child than their benefits, regardless of how / who does it. At the end of the day they would be the one at a lost. Welfare should take over it is obvious the family doesn't have the best interest of the child, and go ahead with the surgery from the money donated. Mehn people make it difficult for others to help.

Sam Chike said...

Always admired Kate.Let her pls disregard the mom and push this great deed to the end.
The hospital can continue treating the child while the runaway mom is still running.

This is exactly what Mayowa's family did to Toyin Aimakhu back then, Dejavu!

Anonymous said...

Please Kate ignore the woman and continue your good work. The boy may be in pains abandoning him will do nobody good.

CHERYL (aka FROM GLORY to GLORY) said...

They family of the boy obviously want to use the boy to eat the money just like that lady Linda ikeji helped who later died. It's still their loss anyway



Long live LIB

Once again Kate our love. Pls you must Do Good to that buy...Forget that witch. You have our support when they start bad mouthing you..

The parents have no right to have direct access to the cash. Let's the manage the fund,that's how it is done.

APPLE said...

Kate instead of allowing this innocent boy die, why not pay Doctors direct so they can start treatment? This boy's family members are so selfish.

I_am_me said...

Everyone saying Kate shouldn't abandon the child, I agree. But if the Mother/Family are uncooperative, or say don't touch my child, there is nothing she can do. You can't help a minor without consent from family. Better she walks away than for them to accuse her in future of killing their child ( people can be crazy). Best thing is for the Lagos state government to get in there and do the needful. They have the power to do that.

Biodun said...

There are so many people that use the bad predicament of others to make money... the mother of the child is one of them.
