Help Hellen Oguna

Very late last night, an excellent friend reached out to me with a touching plea for help.

Her aunt, Hellen Oguna, had had a serious stroke about a month ago and was now was hospitalised, in a coma. A medical bill exceeding 1 MILLION SHILLINGS was then handed to them.

Unfortunately, only Hellen’s daughters, nieces and the like were expected to foot this giant bill. And they tried. They did all they could faced with insurmountable odds, but are now realizing they can’t do this alone. Even after the bill is paid, she’ll still need a lot of attention before she is fully recovered.

Right now, I know a lot of you are tired of being ask for money; so from you all I ask is prayers and that you spread the word.

For those who can, any donations would be greatly appreciated.

You can send them to her daughter, Hilda Leonida Oguna (0733-231-126), or to her niece Lucille Njeri(0710-617-946).

There will be an official meeting at Railway Club on Wednesday, 31 August 2011 at 2 pm. Any help, material or otherwise would save these young ladies a great burden. And help save a mother’s life.

Hellen’s Official Plea For Help

Spread the word, share the link, say a prayer, give what you can.

I can’t imagine what it’s like to have your mother in a coma and feel like you can’t do anything about it.

My prayers go out to Hilda and Lucille. Stay strong.

UPDATE:
From Lucille: “PROGRESS REPORT: We were only able to raise 180,000 at the fundraiser. There was another 100k in pledges, but not one of those people has actually sent the money. I’d like to say a big thank you to Saitonne and iCon for their help, and to everyone else for their prayers and support. Helen Oguna is now in a nursing home in Kileleshwa, she’s not able to communicate with anyone, but the doctor says she’s aware of her surroundings.”

  1. My mother recently died of cancer and it was a long and painful journey for us. My family knows all about the huge medical bills and the emotional toll it takes. As I pray this morning, I ask God to see them through. Every little bit helps-Will spread the word.
    Stay strong girls!

  2. My grandma had a stroke and passed away after three months of hospitalization. The bill was humongous and combined with the preceding four year bills that we paid we spent a whole lot of money. We would not have made it if it wasn’t for the people who helped us out. Will pray and help out where I can.
