Ngiya Jallow, a native of Changai Torro in Sami District, Central River Region of The Gambia recently was delivered of triplets at Bansang Hospital.

Ngiya and her husband Demba Gissay were blessed with 2 girls and a boy.

They thanked the Almighty Allah and staff of Bansang Hospital for their help in ensuring Ngiya delivered without any complication.

They also thanked them for their advice in making sure the babies are put on proper diet and given right medication.

Officials of the hospital meanwhile say they are in the hospital for the health, wellbeing and safety of the public and also advised people especially pregnant women to be visiting clinics and hospitals regularly for proper care and medication.

Doctors thanked Demba and wife for coming to the hospital on time, saying if Ngiya had delivered at home by herself she could have endangered the lives of the babies and herself.

Alkalo of Changai Torro, Abdoulie Waan, expressed delight and thanked the Almighty for the blessings.

However, he said feeding only one baby is a challenge and now three babies and therefore appealed to government, NGOs, philanthropists and anyone who could to assist the woman with the feeding, clothing, medication and other needs of the babies.
