- A disabled Kenyan woman is currently detained at the Mercy Light Hospital in Kiambu town for failing to pay her hospital bills
- She gave birth to a bouncing baby boy, Gift, in January 2017 at the private hospital since the doctors were on strike
- During delivery, she developed complications and had a blood transfusion and specialized treatment that saw her hospital bill soar to KSh 480,000
A disabled woman, Doris, is currently detained at the Mercy Light Hospital in Kiambu where she gave birth six months ago.
Doris gave birth to a bouncing baby boy in January 2017. She named him Gift, God has been kind to her.
Unfortunately, her happiness was short-lived. She developed complications and the aftermath of the specialized treatment saw her bill soar to KSh 480,000 (N1,460,416).
Her parents could not afford to settle her bill. They are small scale farmers. So, a fundraiser was organised and they were able to raise KSh 150,000 (N456,380).
Still, the hospital needs KSh 330,000 (N1,004,036) before they can discharge Doris and her boy.

Doris says that she has texted everyone on her contact list to no avail. She needs to leave the hospital to take proper care of her baby. Unfortunately, her man took to his heels shortly after she was admitted to the hospital.
