Sarah Niwandinda 29 a mother of triplets had a medical bill amounting to shs 750,000 after producing triplets on 12th August 2019 at Rugarama hospital in Kabale Municipality, 450kms South West of Kampala City, Uganda.
Sarah a resident of Kitunduguru village in Buhara Sub County, Ndorwa East Kabale district produced baby boys by caesarian section at Rugarama hospital a missionary hospital.
On the night of 12th, August Sarah Niwandinda was exhausted in dire need of help as she couldn’t manage with her peasant husband.
“I was operated on because I was so weak, Sarah Niwandinda said.
Sarah said as a couple they spent about three weeks at the hospital and failed to arise any single coin to pay to the hospital administration.
According the nurse who spoke on condition of anonymity said that the above couple was supposed to exit today(20th/09/2019) but was denied due to un cleared funds.
Mean while district woman councilor kitumba subconuty Turyakira Christine commonly known as Nyinabashatu has to stand the surerity for the above family after being informed by the Good Samaritan as the hospital authorizes the couple to evaquish.
The legislator raised 150,000 ugsh to the hospital administrator as the remaining 592,000 ugshs will be corrected from the well wishers.
Speaking to our reporter at the scene, Christine called up on all political, church leaders, on governmental organist ions and all the public to help the couple and contribute all the necessities and clear the remaining debt.
Niwandinda says she is afraid of how she will take care of her three newly born babies being a casual laborer and she doesn’t have where to get the funds.
She also commended the district woman councilor kitumba subconuty Turyakira Christine for the support being rendered to them since they produce up the time on sending them off hospital
Silver Tindimweebwa the husband to Niwandinda says he is also over strained and stressed by the family saying he may not manage to take care of his six children including the new born triplets and the three at home.
It became fruitless for our reporter to get a comment from the hospital administrator.
“I was operated upon because I was so weak,” said Sarah
Christine Turyakira Nyinabashatu described Sarah as a heroine because some mothers fail to seek medical help and end up losing their lives and the newborns.
“This lady is indeed a heroine because if she had remained in the village and sought for assistance from the traditional birth attendants she wouldn’t have survived and even the babies,” said Christine
A Whatsapp group for triplet mothers was started like 5 years ago to help mobilize for triplet mothers by Christine who has raised triplets up to University. Several triplet mothers have been helped.
