Miss Joy Odigie, the deputy Edo coordinator of the Albino Foundation, revealed this on Tuesday in an interview with the Nigeria News Agency (NAN) in Benin.
Odigie said the money was made available by Governor Godwin Obaseki‘s N5 million health care intervention fund approved to the foundation earlier this year.
Odigie, however, regretted that Omorogbe passed away on April 12 at the University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital in Enugu.
She said the fund would be given to her family members to offset her medical bills and bring her corpse to Edo for burial.
She praised Obaseki for relieving the plight of PWAs in the state and making healthcare accessible to everyone.
Odigie also congratulated the state health ministry for facilitating the release of the intervention fund.
She urged PWA to always avoid the midday sun, saying it harms their skin.
