May 13, 2016 – Nigerian Woman Who Delivered Quintuplets In California Broke, She Needs Help To Pay $20,000 Hospital Bill
Mrs Ifeoma Nnamani who delivered her 4 children at Providence Parazana Medical Center in California is seeking financial help from Nigerians and Federal government to help her clear the $20,000 she incurred on her children.
Nnamani travelled to the US on referral after losing one of the babies during delivery in Nigeria because of complications.
“With the help of a Reverend Father in “the United States (US), we were linked with the hospital where I delivered the remaining four babies in California. After the delivery, many people in the Diaspora that got the news rallied round us and through the help of an insurance company and some other individuals, my babies stayed in the incubators. But because of their medical concerns, the support we were receiving could not match the debt incurred”.
“My children spent two months in incubators, last year. For every day, we were billed 300 dollars. We still owe the hospital $20,000. This is why we are begging the government and Nigerians to come to our aid.” – Mr Nnamani said
Her husband, Nnaemeka Nnamani lost his shop to a mystery fire four years ago and since then, he has been with no source of income.
His wife said taking care of the children has not been easy.
