"I Collect My Mothers Pee With My Bare Hands" Lady Tells How Life Serves Her Lemon Since Childhood

Ann Wambui Maina can't help but cry as she tells her sad story about how, since she was four months old, life has always dealt her lemons.

She describes how, at the age of four months, she was diagnosed with polio. Her mother attempted to obtain medication from Kenyatta Hospital, but the only assistance she received was the insertion of a metal into Wambui's leg to enable her walking.

Wambui accepted her circumstances and worked hard in school to improve her future prospects. However, after completing form four, she became pregnant and gave birth to a boy. Due to her poverty, she was unable to seek medical attention while pregnant, which had a severe impact on his son.

His son was diagnosed with severe typhoid after birth, a sickness that had already harmed his brain, limiting the amount of water that was intended to sustain it. She attempted to obtain medication from a variety of facilities, including Mathare Hospital, but to no avail.

She describes how her son enjoyed school but always received an E. He was unable to continue after completing class eight and proposed that he take a course in radio repair. However, his mental problems seemed to worsen as he grew older, and he was unable to complete the course.

As if life wasn't already unpleasant enough for her, her elderly mother fell in December and dislocated his limb. She has been unable to walk or do anything since then, and she even urinates and pees on herself. Wambui cries as she describes how she is sometimes compelled to catch her mother's pee with her bare hands because she cannot afford tissue paper.

She respectfully asks well-wishers to help her financially and get her son and mother medical attention. Watch her tale and show your support by clicking on the link below.
