Fundraiser dinner for Kechi Okwuchi: the Sosoliso plane crash survivor

In December 2005, about 60 Loyola Jesuit College students lost their lives in the Sosoliso Plane Crash. Kechi Okwuchi was the only student and one of two people who survived the plane crash. Since then, she has undergone about 75 surgeries. 
But Kechi still needs help. She is scheduled to begin facial reconstructive surgeries in Boston this summer.
      Two of her close friends(GOD BLESS THEM), Somachi Chris Asoluka and Yimi Omofuma are doing something amazing for their friend. They are trying to help her raise money to help her cover the cost of her surgeries. Please see a message from them below and pass on to as many Nigerians as possible.
“A devastating plane crash, over 60% intensive burns, up to five weeks in medically-induced coma and over 75 surgeries to date have not hampered the spirit of our friend, Kechi Okwuchi. She may have been terribly disfigured by the accident but Kechi’s determination and hope to achieve her dreams regardless, inspire us each day. We would like to share her story so that it may inspire you too.”
You are cordially invited to a Fashion Show Dinner Fundraiser, themed, A New Dawn, which would be held on the 30th of July, 2011, in honour of and for the purpose of raising funds for surgeries for our friend and heroine, Kechi Okwuchi.

"Kechi underwent multiple surgeries in South Africa. After waking up from her coma, she had to relearn to do everything again. She learned to sit, she learned to stand, she learned to walk and use her limbs. Needless to say, this process was painful. But one thing she never needed to learn was how to smile again"
please pass this message on and try your best to help out.
much luv,
