A young lady who gave birth to five babies in Grand Cape Mount County last week is calling for assistance to enable her take care of her babies.
Mama Dahsee, who lay very faint and could hardly say a word, was seen being assisted by family members and relatives who went to visit her for the safe delivery of her babies. Outside of the hospital, several of them jubilated amidst dancing and singing songs of praises to God as usually done in a typical Liberian setting.
Shortly after our reporter arrived at the John F. Kennedy Hospital where the mother of the five children put to bed, the children were kept in incubators. Smallah Dahsee, the husband of the five children told the INQUIRER that he was shocked when he heard that his wife has given birth to five children.
“I was confused, I did know what to do when they called me and told me that my wife has given birth to five children; I did not know what to do at the beginning, but I just have to come because I could not escape my responsibility; the news was heavy, but I had to accept it,” Smallah stated.
He stated further that prior to her delivery, they had four children. He said during her first delivery, she had one child, the second turned out to be twin children, but according to him, the twin children did not live, and then the third were triplets; making them, the parents of four children.
Meanwhile, her recent delivery of five babies, one of which did not survive, makes it eight in all the number of children born unto them. Smallah Dahsee is at the moment calling on all humanitarian organizations, both Christian and Islamic Organizations and the Government of Liberia.
