Young Mother Dies leaving two Children
Another sad story!
It is always a sad day when a young mother dies, It is even more sad when she dies needlessly at the hands of medical malpractice. Far too many times this is happening in Liberia. Blessing was only 21. She had a C-section which was probably not even needed. Those with her said, Baby Jeremiah was already visible when the C-section began. The rural clinic kept Blessing for weeks after her delivery. She developed postpartum sepsis. Her pain was intolerable. Blessing often didn’t have the strength to feed Jeremiah. By the time Blessing was rescued from the hands of this substandard clinic, her infection was out of control. As soon as staff at Provision of Hope were notified, they rushed her to the ELWA hospital by taxi. We have few ambulances so that was not possible. ELWA did a surgical repair of the stitches. They found instruments left inside, The surgery was successful, but during the night Blessing died.
Provision of Hope plans to continue supplying their formula. A case of 12 tins lasts for over a month and a half. The cost is $ 65 US. Christian is in Kindergarten. We are trusting for funds to continue his schooling.
Thank you to Felecia Wiebe ( our Liberian daughter) who notified us of this extreme need and for raising the money to get Blessing’s body released from the hospital for burial. Thank you to all these donors. All hospital bills need to be paid before they release the body. Thank God Blessing could have an honorable funeral. Thank you to Daniel Zulu who is a neighbor to the Reeves’ family and helps tremendously! Thank you to those who have already donated and to anyone who might wish to help us continue this work.
This story is only one example of the many stories we could be posting. God is faithful to provide through our generous donors!

Wow! This story really does give us a reality check on the trials some of our brothers and sisters have to go through. It makes us aware of our own thankfulness we can all share during this Easter time.
