HOPE NYABOKE*,17-YEAR-OLD FORM THREE STUDENT
PREGNANCY: FIVE MONTHS
Lying helpless at the corner bed of this ward, Hope can hardly enjoy the rays of the January sunshine. She is in pain; both physical and emotional.
At 16 years, both kidneys have failed after she developed complications from an induced abortion. She lost so much blood that by the time she got to the local hospital in Kisii, she was anaemic and organ failure had set in.
