Ayade's aide donates Items for incubation of premature triplets delivered in Ikom


The family of Onung Achori Okoi has been blessed with a set of triplet. The children which were successfully delivered, prematurely at Holy Family Hospital Ikom, following a referral from the Primary Health Center, Ofunbogha are as at press time hail and hearty. 

In a swift response to the immediate needs of the triplets, the Director General of Cross River State Primary Healthcare Agency, Dr. Betta Edu has made a donation of a power generating set and petrol to the hospital so they can run the incubator for the babies. 

Edu, who also made provision for food items, clothes and other amenities for upkeep of the new babies, encouraged government and staff of PHC to give every necessary support to the family to keep mother and babies alive

In what looks like a response to the DG's call, Mrs Anthonia Owan and Mrs Getty Ogboche all staff of PHC staff in Ikom, offered cash donations to the family. 

In a statement made available to TDN, Dr Betta Edu while commending the quality of service delivery rendered at Primary Health Centre Ofunbogha, expressed satisfaction, with the level of dedication frontline health workers go about their duty in the Ofunbongha.

 "We commend the quality service rendered at Primary Health Centre Ofunbongha by our dedicated frontline health workers, we commend the promptness with which they referred them to a higher level of care. We must make those sacrifices and act beyond ordinary to prevent increase in number of women and children that die daily. The Governor Sen Ben Ayade is proud of the effort of these staff and has asked me to reward them appropriately". The DG informed.

In a telephone conversation with Dr. Edu, the father of the triplets Mr. Onung Achori Okoi told the DG that he was overwhelmed by her timely intervention to save the lives of his children. He noted that they were initially referred to Calabar, but he had no money to transport his family to Calabar while the babies were gradually dying.

The statement released by the Agency has requested members of the public who wish to support the family to care for their triplet to do that through Mr. Onung Achori Okoi's bank account as published below.
