Woman appeals for help to bury her late sister

A woman is appealing for public help following the death of her elder sister after battling with brain tumor for years.

Evaline Nyabate Nasaka, 30, a mother of three, has had to live with a string of tragedies most of her young adult life.

Speaking to Nairobi News, Ms Nasaka narrated how she lost her parents in 2008 during the post-election violence.

Two years ago, she lost her husband then her sister on July 25, 2017.

The body of her late sister, Sabina Moraa, is being held by the hospital for non-clearance of the hospital bill.

ABANDONED

The late Moraa, who was also a mother of three, died at the age of 44 after being admitted at St Luke Orthopaedic and Trauma Hospital in Eldoret in May, 2017.

“I have tried everything and talked to everyone who can help me bury my sister. I do not have a permanent employment and it has been very difficult for me,” she said.

Moraa’s husband abandoned her several years ago after she was diagnosed with the disease. The husband who was a truck driver drove to Rwanda and that is the last time they heard about him.

Nasaka says that she was allowed to raise money by the local chief through donation cards but she all she managed to raise was Sh120,000 which she paid the hospital.

HOSPITAL BILL

Her sister’s National Hospital Insurance Fund (NHIF) could only cater for half what the hospital needs which was Sh500,000.

“With a total hospital bill of Sh1,169,701.57 we have managed to pay Sh620,000 and now we need a similar amount from well-wishers so that I can bury my sister.”

Meanwhile the hospital has detained her late sister’s body until the bill is cleared.

Ms Nasaka can be reached on 0728487595. Alternatively, well-wishers can send their donations to Safaricom Pay Bill Number 972010 Account Number Sabina Moraa.
