My name is Clara, most people know me as Sweetie. In 2012, I was one of three Diectors, we decided to found Isabella's Hope Foundation to enale us offer more assistance to mothers and babies from the Neo Natal Intensive care Unit (NICU) at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital in Ghana. I found out that premature babies were detained at the unit because thier mothers/parents could ot afford to pay their bills in order to release them from the unit
I had been personally supporting families financially for the
past 10 years because there are a lot of under-privileged mothers who struggle to feed their children. The situation is even worse when it comes to medical bills, there is NHIS which gives access to
hospital care, however all medications including medical test have to be paid by the patients, in short, one can be diagnosed and the right medication prescribed but if one does not have
the money then there will be no treatment.
Fortunately, the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit will actually treat premature and very sick new born babies, but if the mothers can not pay the babies are detained in the hospital. Because the mothers have nowhere to sleep and or have no money for transport to go home and return everyday, they end up leaving their babies. The babies end up in orphanages where they wait to be adopted. some mothers sell the little they have and borrow so they can take their babies home, but the babies end up dead because they can not afford to care for them. There is one public toilet and one shower cubicle where their mothers can use during their stay and they have to queue with public for their turn to clean up. the mothers are only allowed in three times during the day to visit and feed their babies and no access in the night at all.
This is why Isabella's Hope Foundation has been set up. There are more people who need help and support than my personal finance can support, there is a mother who has renal failure and has a new born she did not know she was carrying, the Foundation is caring for both mother and child and this will be long term, I have personally adopted a set of triples who lost their mother two days after birth and the second triplet died after two months. the other two children are doing very well by the Grace of God. There two other young girls being supported through education, another young woman who lost her baby is being assisted to find a trade. Please remember nobody plans to put themselves into such situations, this is nature at its worst, so please support Isabella's Hope Foundation to make a difference in these young lives.
