A 20-year-oldKenyan woman is seeking help to have the remains of her mother put to rest nine months after she died.
Maureen Mokoru has been unable to bury her mother, who died in September last year after a short illness.
According to a report by NTV, her mother was sick and died a week after she was admitted to hospital and left behind a substantial bill for her care.
Although the hospital waived the bill, she was, however, required to raise money to have her buried.
Despite neighbours having chipped in, they have not managed to raise much money since most of them are casual labourers.
"We are not very capable of helping her because we are casual labourers, we are now appealing to well-wishers to help her," said Fridah Mbithe, a neighbour.
The orphaned girl needs money for her mother's coffin and morgue services and a a separate amount for transport.
She is now appealing to well-wishers to come to her rescue so she can be able to bury her mother.
"She left me alone, I am now left with my grandmother who is unable to help me," said Maureen.
