Is this going to be another “Mayowa case”??? Nollywood actress, Kate Henshaw, says she and her friends have made
arrangement to return the funds raised for Michael Alvez, a two-year-old
boy born with an ulcerous growth in the face.

The actress also asked Nigerians to stop paying into an account opened
for the victim’s treatment, following disagreements with the family over
Michael’s welfare.This comes after the family’s lawyer ordered an audit
of the funds raised be presented to them.They claim Kate Henshaw in
partnership with Project Alert promised to fly Micheal abroad but
failed.

Kate wrote on Instagram

I want to say a HUGE THANK YOU to EVERYONE who gave. May God reward your
labour of love. The good you have sown will return a hundred fold.
I thank you for trusting me and answering when I called on your help..
…………..
PLEASE STOP IMMEDIATE PAYMENT OF MONIES INTO THAT ACCOUNT AS WE WILL BE MAKING REFUNDS TO MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC.
……………..
I will put out the modalities in my next video.
I WILL NOT HAVE MY NAME AND INTEGRITY SMEARED BY THE GREED OF ANYONE..

Thank you and God bless

According to a letter the family lawyer wrote to the Lagos State Attorney General, dated
February 21, 2017, stated that the family also felt betrayed by Project
Alert after some government officials attempted to withdraw Michael from
LUTH for onward transfer to a motherless baby’s home

He noted in the letter that the family was disappointed that the
two-year-old was not flown out for treatment as promised by the group.

 He said, “We are not demanding the money from them. We only asked them
to give an account and once account is given, they can send the medical
bill directly to the hospital in India where the boy will be taken to.
“Also,
there are discrepancies in the money being declared by the NGO. The
money was taken on behalf of Michael, so nobody has the right to sit on
it. And yes, the mother is not of sound mind. Our client has been the
one taking care of her (Mary’s) two children. Before the NGO took over,
she has been contributing to the medical care of the baby.”

Project Alert, however, denied that it promised to fly the child abroad for treatment.
