WOMAN BLESSED WITH TRIPLETS STRANDED AT FEDERAL MEDICAL CENTRE
Chinwe Ugele, Umuahia.
A woman by name, Mary Emmanuel from Ngodo in Umunneochi, Abia State who was recently delivered of a set of triplets at the Federal Medical Centre in Umuahia may not be able to go home anytime soon due to her inability to pay her medical bill.
Mary had the triplet (2 boys, 1 girl) through a ceasarian section at the hospital on the 10th of June and was discharged about two weeks ago according to her husband.
The young mother of now four kids is helpless with the turn of events.
Her husband, Emma Ọkpara who is an artisan specialised in aluminium doors and windows said he already deposited the sum of one hundred thousand naira(N100, 000) with the hospital but still has a balance of 88,000 naira to complete the payment.
He said he cannot even celebrate the blessings of God for him with the situation of things.
Having tried to raise money from various sources to no avail, Emmanuel is appealing to the government and other philanthropists to come to the aid of his family to enable his wife and children go home.
