9-yr-old explosion victim needs aid [Very Graphic Photos]

A 9-year-old girl, Chinasa Chinedu Joseph, is the victim of a kerosene explosion as the general public is implored to come to her aid.

Fuel tanker explosion in Edo State.

The very graphic photos where shared by a Facebook user, who revealed that the young girl identified as Chinasa Chinedu Joseph, was left partially disfigured after a kerosene explosion at her home in Rivers state on July 12.

Chinasa's widowed mother is now calling on the general public to help with funds which would enable her to clear up her daughter's hospital bills.

The Facebook post read:

"This is Chinasa Chinedu Joseph. She is nine years old and lives with her widowed mother and her only sister at No. 33 Isaiah Eletuo Street Oyigbo Rivers state until disaster struck on the 12th of July 2016. Just about bedtime there was a kerosene explosion that has kept Chichi in hospital for 7 weeks running now. Chichi is vulnerable, Chichi has no where and no one to turn to, the hospital bills are pilling and she might even be needing a reconstructive surgery to make her right hand functional again. This is an appeal to God fearing and good spirited individuals and bodies to please come to our little Chichi's aid.

"You can visit Chichi at Glorious Medical Center, by Oyigbo Timber Market. You can also contact her on 08138271966. God bless you as you help spread the word and respond to this clarion call.We thank every individual that responded and those that are still responding to this call, may God bless you all. For those requesting for the account details, here it is:Account Name: UWEM CHINEDU JOSEPH

account Number: 0020660429.

Bank: DIAMOND BANK PLC."

Our prayers go out to her as we pray that she gets the desired help.
