I became pregnant at the age of 13 and underwent seven unsuccessful reconstructive surgery

Blessing Ekanem has described how she became pregnant at the age of 13 and underwent seven reconstructive surgeries without success. She is a patient at the Pope John Paul II Family Life Centre/VVF Hospital in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State.

Miss Ekanem, 20, revealed the information while seeking medical care from the governor’s wife in Uyo. She claimed to be in need of immediate surgery due to obstetric injuries.

The Governor’s wife discovered Miss Ekanem’s case when visiting the center to provide medical supplies on behalf of the Esop Mbong Ibaan Akwa Ibom, Dallas, USA.

The First Lady remarked that it was unusual for young girls to be afflicted with such illnesses and urged all of the patients to refrain from returning to their former habits after receiving treatment.

“I purposely called you children earlier because you are not here because of childish behavior, but rather because the mistake has been made and you are here,” she continued.

“God is now extending a second chance to you. Do not revert to your previous behavior while God is at your side, this machine is utilized to heal you, and you recover.

“If this hospital were to purchase the equipment, I’m not sure they could easily afford it, but the mercy of God is sufficient because God moved someone to send this down to you all the way from the United States of America.

We pray that she will be blessed by God in all that she does and wherever she is.

The Family Life Centre/VVF Hospital was the brainchild of Dr. Ann Ward, who until her passing was an obstetrician/gynecologist and a member of the Medical Missionaries of Mary who dedicated her life to serving humanity, according to the center’s administrator, Rev. Sis. Rosemary Akpa.

She gave a quick rundown of the hospital’s five-year statistics, noting that they had completed 506 repairs in total, of which 416 patients were from Akwa Ibom State and 90 were from other areas of the nation.

The administrator listed the hospital’s difficulties, including a lack of finance, electricity supply, and facility renovation. She also praised the Governor’s wife for coming to the hospital and Esop Mbong Ibaan Akwa Ibom for providing the medical supplies.

Happiness Udoudo of Ikono LGA, one of the survivors of VVF, spoke about her harrowing experience and the help she received from hospital staff.
