Road Accident

"My Hubby Died A Few Months After Our Wedding, My Only Child Died While I Was in ICU" Lady Narrates

Christine Gitaka has seen it all. Her husband died in a road accident just a few months after their church wedding. 

Christine was also involved in the accident but she survived. 

At the time of the accident, she was heavily pregnant with her daughter. From the intensity of her injuries, her daughter was born with Cerebral Palsy. 

Years later, Christine suffered from a rare autoimmune disease which affected all her internal organs and skin. 

While fighting for her life in the ICU, her only daughter died. 

Christine's bill at Agha Khan hospital was 12 million. She managed to raise slightly more than half of it through family and friends.

The hospital discharged her but she's now being demanded to pay the remaining 5.4 million Kenyan shillings. 

In addition, her left eye requires specialized treatment.

She is appealing to Kenyans to help her raise the amount.

Watch her interview on Metha ya Kagoni here to get details on how you can donate.
