A Canada-based Kenyan woman who fell ill after traveling home to attend her father’s burial has appealed for help from well-wishers.
Naomi, who has abdominal problems, was admitted to the hospital on September 27th and has so far undergone six surgeries. She was discharged and readmitted twice after developing complications.
Doctors in Nairobi have advised she be repatriated to receive specialized care in Canada, where she lives with her family.
She will require medical transportation as well as be accompanied by a medical escort.
The family is seeking to raise funds for her transportation to Toronto quoted at $17,731 (Sh1.9 million) in addition to $8,000 (Sh890,000) for her medical expenses.
Naomi has been away from her family since September and is dearly missed by her daughters and her husband.
A GoFundMe account has been set to help raise the funds.
