- A young mother of triplets has been spotted begging on the roadside
- The mom, identified as Amanda, resorted to begging after the father of her kids abandoned his responsibilities and ran away
- Amanda’s kids are not more than three months old and she begs to take care of them
A young woman has gained the attention of some well-meaning Nigerians after she was spotted begging in the hot sun with her triplets.
Sometimes men who have fathered children abandon their responsibility for the women alone as they lead a new life elsewhere.
Raising a child can be a handful, let alone having to take care of three babies at the same time. Such is the case of the woman identified as Amanda.
According to a Facebook user, Chigozie Effe, Amanda was seen begging on the roadside at Summit junction in Delta state, with her three newly born babies in the hot sun.
Upon being questioned, the poor woman revealed that she was in a relationship with a man whom she thought would marry her. However, he absconded when he found out she was pregnant with triplets.
After deciding not to get rid of the pregnancy, she delivered two baby boys and a girl.
In the photo shared on the social networking site, Amanda was seen sitting on a wrapper laid on the ground as she cradled one of her babies with one hand and held an umbrella with the other to shield the rest of her kids from the sun.
Her situation has roused pity from some well-meaning people as they called for Nigerians to come to her aid.
A number of people on social media were not impressed by her situation and they expressed as much in the comment section. See some reactions below:
P. We hope she gets the help she needs to take care of her children.
