By Elia Joseph Loful-Kapoeta
Trinity Energy Limited Company has promised SSP 1.1 to support the mother who gave birth to triplets children in Kapoeta Eastern Equatoria State.
The woman delivered in September and later another woman also gave birth to triplets afterward but later lost two babies.
Dhiem Paul Manyuon, Trinity Energy Staff told Juba Monitor last week that they went to Kapoeta to deliver financial assistance to the two women who gave birth to triplets.
“On behalf of Trinity Energy and the Chief Executive Officer, Robert Eric Mdeza and the Chairman Board of Directors Akol Emmanuel Ayii Madut, we came to Kapoeta to meet the two women who gave birth to triplets to offer financial assistance to them,” Manyuon said.
He said out of SSP 1.8m total amount committed by the Company to the two families, the woman with the surviving triplets babies will receive SSP 35,000 monthly for the next eighteen months.
“We have pledged over 1.8m South Sudanese pounds to support these two families. The first woman who gave birth in September, this woman with three surviving babies will receive over SSP 1.1m and out of that we will pay her SSP 420,000 to help her buy some food items, clothes for the babies and the mother,” he said.
He emphasized that the purpose of the support meant to improve the living conditions of the two families adding that, the move geared as part of company’s corporate responsibility.
“Our main goal in supporting these two families is to make sure these mothers and babies have a decent living. We want these children to grow well and healthy, we want them at least to have a decent food to eat,” Paul stated.
Namoru Lokipi who is now a mother of seven children said her husband died earlier however, the one who was with her decided to abandon her alone. She expressed that it will be very difficult for her to raise the triplets adding she is appealing to any well-wisher to help her to sustain the kids.
“My only challenge now is how to get the milk and later the food for these children,” Namoru said.
Early this year, a woman in Rumbek, Lakes state delivered quadruplets while another yet in Cueibet same State gave birth to triplets. This prompted some well-wishers, companies, including President Kiir to give in their support.
