The story of Rebecca Atieno is one of the saddest stories you may read on the Internet this week.
The lonely woman gave birth to a bouncing baby girl under a tree at Uhuru Park on Wednesday.
She had been fired from her job where she worked at a hotel a few hours before delivery. She had also been kicked out of a sh 50 lodging in Muthurwa.
Things worsened when she was forced to part with her phone before she used one of Mike Sonko’s public toilets at the park.
But she defied all these odds to give birth; her baby was named hope. The hope that tomorrow will be better than today.
“I marveled at my newborn daughter’s perfect fingers and toes. I felt lucky, as all new parents do, but also because I had somehow miraculously managed to do this all on my own,” said Atieno.
And now a certain good samaritan has created an MChanga account to help raise funds for Rebecca.
Based on atieno’s story giving birth at Uhuru Park and the resilience and hope she had despite her circumstances, I have opened an Mchanga for her!
