Conjoined twins: Help offered

2009-02-02 00:00

Help is at hand for the conjoined twins, Holy and Amazing Ngubane, whose story was featured in The Witness yesterday.

The Witness received calls and e-mails from people asking how they could assist the twins and their mother, 18-year-old Busi Ngubane.

Some of those who called were the sympathetic parents of multiple births themselves. One man who offered help is the father of quadruplets.

Offers of assistance still to be received include tins of milk formula, nappies, a high chair, a pram and clothes for the baby girls.

An official from the SA Social Security Agency also promised to help Ngubane to get grants for her baby girls.

Holy and Amazing were born at Albert Luthuli Hospital in November last year. They now live at Mpumuza in Edendale.

Anyone wanting to assist should call The Witness at 033 355 1127.
