A trip to Korle-bu NICU, and so many sad cases, one such case is this 19 years girl in JSS who got herself pregnant by her school boyfriend, she ended up at hospital with her NHS card lost, she has post natal depression and she fell from a third floor ward in the hospital, she survived with all her front teeth gone and bruising all over, and stitches to her chin, her mother was asked to come and stay with her at the hospital and watch her daughter (suicide watch).? This meant the grandmother can not sell her kenkey, the only means of supporting the new mother and baby, and she still has to pay her daughter's bill of 1,900ghs before the sick mother will be discharged. She also has to find money to pay for the baby's bill which will be worked out on the day of discharge, when the Wahala will start again ??as the baby can not go home until her bill is paid. During this time, the grandmother has to accompany her daughter to come and feed the baby or find someone who will accompany the mother to the hospital each day until the baby's bill is paid. ???This case had been referred to social welfare and they offered that if the girl can find half her bill 950ghs, she can go home and the rest can be paid per agreement. ?? If she defaults, the police will put her in jail.?? The grandmother, who can not work now because she has to suicide watch her daughter managed to find 400gh but the hospital would not let the sick mother go home. ???. We paid 550ghs so the mother can go home, 60ghs just to make a folder for the baby's notes and 170ghs towards the baby's unknown bill. ?. I am trying to extend the support for the grandmother and as usual, I am extending my begging bowl, pls donate, if you have nappies, sheets, clothes or anything else, give me a call, l will come and pick up, for those in the UK n Ghana. USA and all you can donate to our website luvnicu.org.uk. Tnx in anticipation and for reading this.
