Blessing is 6 years old. She is disabled due to birth complications. She was born in a small local clinic with minimal employment facilities. The delivery of baby Blessing was very hard and difficult, which led to the nurses forcing her out of the womb. As a result, she suffered severe trauma. She has several physical disabilities, including cerebral palsy, and depends on her family for all of her daily needs. As the grandmother tells the story, Blessing didn’t cry for the first 3 hours after birth. After they were sent home, Blessing didn’t stop crying for the first two days. She was then referred to a local hospital, where doctors determined that her spinal cord had broken, likely due to the strain of the birthing process. Blessing was subsequently diagnosed with cerebral palsy. She spent some time in the hospital. The doctors treated her as best as possible with the resources available there. Blessing’s mother was a student at the time and went back to college after the birth of her baby, leaving Blessing’s grandmother to take on Blessing’s care. Blessing’s grandmother decided to take her to Triumph Heart for nutritional support and physical therapy. Blessing weighed approximately 6 kg when she was first brought to our clinic for nutritional support and physical therapy. Since then, Blessing has made significant progress in her development and physical well-being. With the help of Triumph Heart’s dedicated team, she has gained weight and improved her motor skills. Today, Blessing is thriving and we are trying to give her the support she needs through donations. Blessing and her family, as well as we at Triumph Heart Organization are therefore very happy with the help and donation from Karim and his donors to provide Blessing with good nutrition!
In Africa, complications during childbirth are common. Complications for both mother and child. This is often caused by the inadequate and poor medical facilities. Lack of access to proper medical care and skilled healthcare professionals often leads to higher maternal and infant mortality rates. In addition, inadequate prenatal care and limited resources for postnatal care can lead to long-term health problems for both mother and child.
