THE committee in charge of the money donated to the Nepali conjoined twins says it is willing to pay for Jamuna's treatment at East Shore Hospital.
In a letter to The Straits Times yesterday, the committee said it had asked Dr Keith Goh, one of the neurosurgeons who separated the twins in 2001, to submit a detailed treatment plan and associated costs.
The committee is in charge of disbursing the $57,000 that remains from almost $670,000 donated to the twins by the public when they first came here seven years ago.In its letter, the committee took issue with The Straits Times' story on Jamuna's treatment, which appeared on Thursday. It said the article gave the impression that it was reluctant to pay for the eight-year-old girl's medical expenses.
