DAME OLGA LOPES-SEALE, also popularly known as “Aunty Olga” has been hospitalised in the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) after falling at her Stanmore Crescent, Black Rock, St Michael home and breaking a hip on Thursday evening.

Dame Olga’s granddaughter Susan Pascal told the SATURDAY SUN that her grandmother, who is the heartbeat of the Dame Olga Lopes-Seale’s Needy Children’s Fund, is on Ward A3 awaiting “a decision from a physician to take her to surgery”.

 “Her hip is broken in a couple of places and right now she is resting comfortably . . . . But she is bedridden and she can’t move,” she said.

Pascal noted that Dame olga, who will be 92 years old on December 26, was her normal happy self  “but she is worried about people who may be needy at this time of the year and she is not going to be able to do anything about it.”

Pascal asked people not take any donations of clothes or other items to the house because there is nobody there to receive the stuff. Rather they should take the items to the Variety Club or the Salvation Army.(AH)
