A middle aged woman identified as Doris Bleede in Mango Town, Virginia in Montserrado County is calling on well-meaning Liberians and the government to come to the aid of her husband, Mr. Amos Konah.
According to Doris, her husband Amos Konah, aged 43, is facing serious health problems with his right eye following an incident that occurred at his sister’s place during a visit there.
Doris explains that when her husband got to his sister’s place, he opened the door and was looking back when the door’s catch went into his eye.
Days after the incident Doris says her husband’s eye began hurting which led them to a hospital where they did an operation on the victim’s eye.
That did not solve the problem, she says, noting that the condition worsened with the eye facing abnormal growth. Doris says she and her husband have five children, adding that this coronavirus crisis has created more hardship for the family because her husband was the sole income earner for them.
She complains that for a single parent to take care of five children is not something easy, thereby calling on Senators, Representatives and other politicians to come to the aid of her dying husband. Since the incident, Doris narrates that they have visited lots of hospitals in seeking solutions, but none of them has helped.
According to her, her husband can’t walk anymore, now compelling her to take him to places, saying it’s too much for her. The situation has led her to begin selling charcoal so that the family can be able to get food, she says, lamenting that there is less profit in this business.
