“The 31 days I spent at SBH was a beautiful experience because I grew to believe in the doctors and that my children would survive,” says Naromie, a 41-year-old mother of triplets cared for at SBH.
Naromie gave birth at a hospital in L’Asile, Nippes, which was badly damaged in the earthquake last year, and received long-term support from an HEI/SBH team. Naromie explains, “I met nurses and doctors from SBH who took good care of me. I gave birth to triplets - two girls (Dorah and Doranah) and one boy (Dorhy).
“After I gave birth, I didn’t feel well, and the children’s health was not good at all. I started to cry and was scared I would lose them. A nurse from SBH assured me that my children and I would be well taken care of there. That’s when I started to become hopeful.”
