It will be recalled that months back a cry for help was raised for a conjoined twins born at Enugu and actress Caroline Dajuma was willing to help and even asked the public to also assist.
Well…according to her now, the twins are still been held at the hospital and efforts to reach them has proved abortive, rather the hospital is asking for N5m as published in a newspaper. The actress has now released a press statement calling them out. Her statement below:
“My little angels are 4 months old today … Unfortunately I have to speak up on behalf of this kids and the parents.
The hospital they are in right now are bent on operating on them when they don’t have the equipments.
Hospitals in Texas and Canada have asked for their MRI scan and CT scan to see if they can assist this children but the hospital in Enugu has refused to give it to them , when I personally called a certain prof obiayo she asked me what the hospital abroad needed it for. What a funny question.
The hospital went as far as publishing in the newspaper that they would need 5m for the surgery without informing the parents .
“To them it’s all about the money. The mother has been crying for fear of loosing her daughters. The hospital has refused to communicate with the parents but are only concerned with making a name and money through this innocent babies. Giving out their personal bank Acc without the consent of the family . They said we should keep the kids in the hospital for 9 months before operation by my
research those babies don’t need to stay for that long if they ain’t sharing any organs. This babies are handed over to student doctors and that scares me most.
“I have decided to voice out cause I have been the one consoling the parents since I got involved but right now I am extremely livid at the selfishness and non caring attitude of the doctors. The parents can speak for themselves . Hopeville foundation will continue to do its best .
Unfortunately the hospital in Enugu is refusing to assist.
“Pls help Mrs Mary ayeni smile again. She is a God fearing woman and certainly has gone through a lot . I plead with Nigerians to tell the hospital in Enugu to release this children’s medical records to hospitals that are willing to assist. This babies are not lab rats they deserve to live.
We are willing to work with the hospital in Enugu as a TEAM but we refuse them taking out the operation all alone without equipments and the right professionals.
“They have a right to live. Pls help Mrs ayeni and her family.
Pls kindly make this viral until Mrs Ayeni is heard and attended to properly. This babies deserves the best medical care . Thank you all.”
