Read below as it was sent in
A 23yrs old Miss Blessing Godwin, from Eket L.G.A in Akwa Ibom state is in urgent need of financial support to rescue her from her predicament. On the 28th of October, 2015, at about6pm exactly, Mrs. Blessing was admitted in the labor room of Ilasamaja Health Center for child delivery. After several hours of delayed parturition with , the head nurse suggested that they  would transfer her with immediate effect to another Standard hospital as a result of unavailability of life saving equipment.
In a live interview with VOC NEWS today, Mrs. Blessing Godwin recounted her bewilderment, when she was told to leave the Ilasamaja health center “I was stranded because there was no cash on me. My husband and I stayed from 11pm to 4:30 am the following morning, before we could get assistance to take us to Isolo General Hospital ”.  At this point she broke down crying profusely. It took the effort of this reporter to console her before she continued the narration of her ordeal.  According to her when they got to Isolo General Hospital, it was another hard luck, as there was no vacant bed for her to be admitted. This incident generated curious attention as the nurse on duty suggested that, if she stayed one more hour, there would be likelihood, that the child might die in her womb.

The only solution left to rescue the poor girl was to rush her to a specialist hospital. Mater Christi is a specialist hospital located at 8, Bishop Okogie Street, off Ago palace way, Balogun B/stop Okota Lagos where the Caesarian was done successfully.  And she was delivered of a bouncing baby girl. But unknowingly to her, this was just the begin of her woes, as she and her jobless husband, Mr. Godwin could only pay N50,000 from the hospital bill, with an outstanding bill of N150,000.
