Oh Dear! Mother Of Triplets Detained At The Hospital For Being Unable To Pay N77,600 (Pics)

Hmmm.. What was supposed to be a happy moment in a couple's life has been ruined following their detention at the hospital.

After welcoming triplets, a couple identified as Mr and Mrs Dennis Anongo, have been unable to leave the hospital, due to their inability to offset their bills, two weeks after the birth of their children at the General hospital in Benue state.. This development led to the hospital detaining them till they can come up with the total of N77,600 they owe.

According to a Facebook user identified as Ukan Kurugh, who shared the story and pics of the couple, efforts are being made to raise the money so that the couple can be allowed to take their children home. See what he posted below:

Successful delivery of children calls for celebration among parents, the story of Mr. & Mrs. Dennis Anongo comes with mixed feelings as his wife, Mrs. Kwaghaondo was delivered of triplets (2 boys and 1 girl) at the General Hospital, North-Bank, Makurdi. 

Amidst this joy, they have been unable to foot the hospital bill of Seventy Seven Thousand, Six Hundred Naira (N77,600), a reason for which the hospital has refused them departure.

While I was at the hospital this afternoon, one of the nurses, Sewuese who called my attention told me in confidence that, since birth, the children have not added in weight hence they were malnourished due to the mother’s poor feeding, which in turn has also affected them. It is incontestable that, at this time, enhanced feeding is deserved for a mother who has just put to bed and the nature of her feeding has overriding effects on the newborn.
The triplets and their mother have been unable to leave the hospital two weeks since their birth

The father of the children, Mr. Dennis Anongo is a peasant farmer who is resident at Atsom Village in Gwande District of Makurdi Local Government Area, a place located before Daudu on the Makurdi-Lafia road. The mother is but only a house wife who accompanies her husband to the farm.

The children which I gathered were delivered through cesarean session, which was done on the 10th of May, 2017 which means that they have been stayed at the hospital for more than 2 weeks now. Feeding is equally a challenge, hence they are of rural domicile and all the visitors from the village only come along with either pounded yam, akpu or other forms of carbohydrate foods. This has equally affected the new born babies who have not added in size since over the 2 weeks of their birth.

The triplets were delivered through a Cesarean Section, and their parents have been unable to pay N77,600 to take them home

I sincerely wish to use this medium to reach out to the government, humanitarian organizations, spirited individuals and all members of the public to add value to the lives of these new children who are for now been starved and suffered. It’s indeed an uncommon thing of joy that the children have come, but this challenge has countered the smooth happiness the family would have celebrated.
