A 32-year old woman who recently gave birth to triplets at the Lucanus Clinic located in the Tusafield Community in New Georgia said she’s breathing a sigh of relief after Cultural Ambassador Juli Endee yesterday made substantial contributions toward her medical bill as well as the welfare of the children and the family.
Amb. Juli Endee contributed US$300 towards Hawa Passewe’s medical bills and L$10,000 as well as materials and food items valued at L$20,000 for the babies and the mother.
The items donated include tubs, pampers, toiletries, baby clothes as well as a bag of rice and a container of vegetable oil.
Amb. Endee is the first donor to come to the aid of Hawa Passewe since she made the passionate appeal to the public nearly a week ago after she gave birth to her two boys and a girl.
Presenting the donation on behalf of Ambassador Endee, Rev. Veronica Smith said Endee will continue to be a benefactor of the less fortunate and people in desperate need.
She expressed the hope that the modest contribution will help to alleviate the stress and worry that Ms. Passewe has been experiencing since she gave birth.
Receiving the donations, Ms. Passewe praised Amb. Endee for the assistance provided at the critical time after her delivery. She admitted that she has been worried about her medical bills and the lack of money to purchase basic essential materials to care for the babies.
The proprietor and surgical nurse, Wesseh Tumoe, who delivered the triplets last week Thursday, said he was also happy for Ambassador Endee’s assistance.
Mr. Wesseh, a retired surgical nurse with 29 years of experience, said it took him and his medical staff six hours to perform the surgery and safely deliver the babies. Since he performed the caesarean to deliver the babies, he has been using his personal resources to feed the mother and care for the triplets.
Madam Wesseh has three other children. The father of the children is said to be a day laborer providing for his family.
