A Nigerian philanthropist, Dr Betta Edu has revealed how a very poor woman was visibly unhappy after giving birth to a set of triplets in Cross River state. Dr. Edu who was on an outreach in the community yesterday – disclosed that the mother of triplets was afraid and unhappy after giving birth due to lack of funds to take care of the babies. She also said to the philanthropist “please take my babies out of here because they will eat them”…
Dr Betta Edu shared this on her social media page yesterday;
“I love to go into the communities and follow my passion. However this comes with a lot of heart breaks and emotional baggage.
Today was not different, while on community outreach to Osakam community in Ofumbongha/Yala Ward Obubra LGA, Mrs. Charity Eyam Ogobi delivered triplets(3boys) at our health post. The entire village was jubilating because it has never happened there before. The gathered the window like bees trying to get a glimpse of the three boys sent from above.
However the mother of the triplets was very afraid and didn’t look happy. I asked her quietly what her concerns were and she said “please take my babies out of here because they will eat them, I can see them every where here…. They will eat them” (did I believe that… Hell NO! ) I obliged her and took both parents with the babies to the comprehensive PHC Obubra. Of course she was worried about their welfare and in the spirit of AYADE CARE I have decided to add them to the battalion I cater for every day.
Another sorry sight that has led to my loss of appetite and sleep this night was a severely malnourished child who was eating white yam that had sand rubbed all over…. Poverty is real… It’s deep. Well to cut long story short… He too got on the list of those whom I share my daily pay with. Someone out there is in need of the little help you can offer, don’t keep them waiting forever!
I may not change the world but let me save one life at a time!!!! OBUBRA SAMO!”
