This project has finished.
Nice to meet you! I'm Ogunjimi Aderonke and I live in Lagos, Nigeria.
I'm about to deliver my baby and I'm truly worried because I don't how how I'm going to afford the hospital and the baby expenses.
Soon, I will become a mother of a baby boy.
I'm a new mother and I would like to give birth in a hospital for safety but I don't have health insurance, which unfortunately is very common in my country.
If I want to deliver my baby in a hospital I will need to fully pay all the medical expenses. The other option is to give birth at home, which is dangerous.
When a baby is born many things have to be bought for his care.
I've some savings, but if I use them to buy all what my baby needs we won't be able to pay the rent.
For all those reasons I would really appreciate any little help you could give me from the bottom of my heart.
I'm married but unfortunately my husband hasn't got a job.
He is searching a job, but he didn't find one so far. I do have a job, but as I'm about to deliver I currently can't work so our economic situation is getting worse.
Once I have my baby I would like to start working as soon as I can because nobody else can help me in my whole family.
I would need $2,000 to be able to afford the hospital expenses and everything my baby will need when born.
If I can collect enough funds I will deliver my baby in the hospital. I'm running out of time.
As soon as I can I will do my best to go back to work and fix the economic situation of my family.
