In preparation for a long flight to China for an operation, the 14-year-old cancer patient, Abian ‘Abbie’ Ntshabele is undergoing water drainage treatment in the United Kingdom.

The young Motswana girl’s uncle, Machel Ntshabele told Mmegi that they have high hopes for Abbie’s healing as they are desperately waiting for the operation.

“The doctors have assured us that she will recover. They are currently draining water in her body so that she can be fit to fly to China. We are just waiting for their approval report,” said Ntshabele. Receiving a donation of  P31,000 from Botswana Telecommunications Corporation Limited (BTCL) on Tuesday, Ntshabele said the family appreciated the passion and support that Batswana have showed to them. “On behalf of the family, I appreciate the support we have been given by Batswana. We have been thinking that we are alone in this trial time but we are not alone, the nation is there for us,” said Ntshabele.
