A couple in Anambra state are in a jubilation mood after they welcomed their bundles of joy, but they are also crying out for help from the general public.
The official Facebook page of the Anambra Broadcasting Service (ABS) has shared the story of a woman identified as Ifeoma Nwaka, and her husband, Ogbonnaya, who just welcomed a set of quintuplets at Life International Hospital in the Awka area of the state.
It was gathered that aside from being happy about the arrival of the babies, Ifeoma and her husband cried out to Nigerians to please come to their aid, adding that she and her husband are petty traders and do not have the resources to feed the newborn children and pay hospital bills.
Here’s how ABS reported the story;
“An Anambra woman, Mrs Ifeoma Nwaka, aged 44 from Enugwu-ukwu, married to Abia state born Mr. Ogbonnaya Nwaka has given birth to a set of quintuplets.
She delivered at about twenty minutes past 1pm on Wednesday, August 8, 2018.
The births came after four years of delivering her daughter and first child.
Mrs Nwaka delivered through caesarian session at Life International hospital, Awka, a new health care facility set up in Anambra state as a result of Governor Willie Obinabo’s ‘Aku Luo Uno’ (Think Home) clarion call.
The Nwaka family is having challenges feeding the babies and paying the hospital bills.
The mother of six told ABS correspondent Ngozi Obileri that she and her husband are petty traders at Owerri where they are based until she was admitted into the hospital some weeks ago as the multiple conception was detected at the very early stage.
They are appealing to the state government, good spirited individuals, and members of the public to come to their aid by donating cash and materials to them for the upkeep of the children.
To support the family, please pay into account number; Ogbonnaya and Ifeoma Nwaka, Zenith Bank, 2086662062.”
