Sierra Leone mom cry for help after giving birth to baby with big tumor on her head

The birth of a child in most African communities is always a thing of joy not only for the mother but the whole community at large. However, this was not the case of a 23 years old mother in Makeni the headquarter town of the North-region of Sierra Leone, who gave birth to a child with large tumour attached to her head.

The one month old baby girl who was born through a caesarean section came with a very large tumour as large as a football firmly attached to her head. Doctors say delicate surgery will be required to separate the baby’s skull from the massive mass.

Narrating her ordeal, the mother of the child, Isha Bangura, said that she was told earlier during her pregnancy that the child in her womb was not normal, which left her confused and tormented.

She said that, her pregnancy which lasted for almost 11 months, instead of the normal pregnancy period which is 9 months, was riddled with severe stomach pain.

Isha further said that, the man that is responsible for the pregnancy has refused to render any assistance to her and that he has also turned down opportunity to visit the child.


The story was sent to AfricanQuarters by Yusuff Moseray Suma a Radio journalist in Makeni, Sierra Leone
