A family in Oloibortoto is devastated by the illness of their daughter, who in February was flown to China for treatment but is now worse than before.
Mwosia Lenjoi, 18, dropped out of school two years ago after she was overwhelmed by a cancerous growth on her tongue.
Her father, John Lenjoi, from Oloibortoto in Kajiado West has never had a sleep since her daughter left school over the infection.
He has visited all the hospitals in Nairobi but the cost of treatment and medication kept the family away from the reach.
A family friend, Joe Sirai, early last year managed to connect Mzee Lenjoi with foreign philanthropist living in the country, who sponsored Mwosia to China for advanced treatment of the cancerous growth from her mouth.
About one month after arriving from China, Mwosia is down again.
Lenjoi’s herd of cattle that used to sustain the family have all perished in the on-going drought in Kajiado West and the family is now depending on well-wishers and upkeep.
Mwosia has been down since she arrived from China and her father has nowhere to turn to but to seek heavenly intervention for his first born daughter.
His sick daughter cannot eat any solid food but milk alone buy use of a straw.
“We are praying day and night for our daughter in seeking heavenly intervention. We have no one to turn to but God. Kenyatta National Hospital requires a lot of money and yet I cannot even afford bus fare to Nairobi,” said a devastated Lenjoi.
He appealed to the government to help him admit his daughter at KNH.
