Abandoned Mother of Triplets Begs for Assistance

A 35-year-old mother of five, Mrs. Queen Udekwe, whose husband, Mathew Udekwe, abandoned after giving birth to a set of triplet, has appealed to well-spirited Nigerians and corporates organizations to come to her aid to enable her care for the children.
Queen who had earlier given birth to a set of twins before the arrival of the triplets, said since she gave birth to the triplets on April 26, 2015, things have been very difficult for her and her children.
Speaking to journalists at the Edo state Secretariat of the Nigeria Union of Journalists, the woman who said she hails from Ogwa in Esan West local government area of Edo state, said she does not want her children to die of starvation.
She said when a scan of her pregnancy revealed that she was carrying a set of triplet, her husband who hailed from Omonukpa community, Enugu state, told her that he would not be around when the babies would be delivered, due to lack of fund, a statement she taught he was joke.
The distraught mother who said her husband absconded shortly before she gave birth, disclosed that her relations and kind hearted individuals saw her through at the hospital and in taking care of the triplets and the set of twins.
“I already had a set of twins. To me, it’s a thing of joy until my husband absconded shortly before giving birth to triplets,” she added.
“I used to hawk rice with wheel barrow while my husband is tricycle driver. I am finding it difficult to feed the triplets and the twins. I used to take them round markets to beg for money so that we can eat. I don’t want them to die of starvation.
“I am appealing to Nigerians and corporate organisations for urgent assistance to save me and my babies from dying of starvation,” Queen said.
