Multiple blessings as woman delivers quintuplets, seeks help
By Sunny A. David, Awka
A 44-year-old woman, Mrs. Ifeoma Nwaka, from Enugwu-Ukwu, married to Abia State-born Mr Ogbonnaya has given birth to a set of quintuplets.
She was delivered at about twenty minutes past 1pm on Wednesday, August 8, 2018.
The births came after four years of delivering her daughter and first child.
Mrs. Nwaka delivered through caesarian session at Life International hospital, Awka, a new healthcare facility set up in Anambra State as a result of Governor Willie Obinabo’s ‘Aku Luo Uno’ (Think Home) clarion call.
The Nwaka family is having challenges feeding the babies and paying the hospital bills.
The mother of six told Apex News that she and her husband are petty traders at Owerri until she was admitted into the hospital some weeks ago as the multiple conception was detected at the very early stage.
They are appealing to the state government, good spirited individuals, and members of the public to come to their aid by donating cash and materials to them for the upkeep of the children.
To support the family, please pay into account number; Ogbonnaya and Ifeoma Nwaka, Zenith Bank, 2086662062.
