Mom of Triplets to Get New House
Meanwhile, Madam Vivian, a Ghanaian mother of triplets abandoned by her husband, has received a donation in cash, food products, and other items for their upkeep.
The new mother was abandoned by the father of the babies when he learnt about their premature birth.
Vivian, domiciled in a village in the Central Region, told Etwerso Hemaa that she lost one of the babies due to ill health because she couldn't afford to take the baby to the hospital.
