    Kenyans donated over Ksh500,000 to help parents of a baby who was struck by fork jembe.

    Published on

    Kenyans came together and raised Ksh500,000 for the family of Baby Travis Maina, a youngster who tragically passed away after surgery at Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH).

    On Thursday, October 13, Kenyan entrepreneur Karangu Muraya released a statement saying half a million had been donated in the funding campaign to give baby Travis a suitable sendoff after he died of massive blood loss due to a fork jembe lodged in his brain.

    Glory to God we are at half a million….let’s continue to support mama travis dear friends….you can send your support to 0769023091 fatma bakar.

    A Facebook update from Karangu Muraya.

    With a sad expression on her face, Muthoni expressed gratitude to the donors. The mother had not yet come to terms with the death of her son which happened on Tuesday, October 11.

    Muthoni claims that if it weren’t for KNH’s alleged negligence while caring for the deceased baby Travis, her own child would still be alive today. She said that in order to reserve a hospital bed, the hospital required payment of Ksh20,500, an amount that Maina’s family did not have.

    However, a statement from KNH indicated that the situation with baby Travis was too complex for emergency surgery.

    On Tuesday, October 18th, the funeral for baby Travis will take place in Kilimambogo, Kiambu County.
