Pamela Atieno Akoko, 46, from Kapsokwony village, Elgon ward Mt. Elgon Constituency Bungoma County who was diagnosed with cervical cancer is undergoing treatment at Eldoret Hospital.

The patient has suffered for a long time which has forced the family to sale everything to save her live.

The family needs Sh.450,000 to complete her treatment and pay for the other services.

Addressing the press on July, 14, 2020, Hon. Jane Cheperenger Ingo nominated MCA Bungoma County assembly pleaded to well-wishers to intervene and help the woman get medication.

‘’Please let us not leave this family to battle on their own, I plead to my fellow MCA’s and other friends to chip in and help her,’’ she said.

She added that Pamela has undergone Chemotherapy and Radiotherapy at Eldoret Hospital but the family lack funds to pay for her bill.

‘’ Pamela has been in hospital for so long this is why I have decided to come on the ground and look for friends to contribute for this vulnerable family she is the bread winner for her family,’’ she said.

However, she said that many families have suffered during this global pandemic, adding that Mt. Elgon people have lost lives from landslides due to heavy rains.

She said that the many mothers are succumbing to cervical cancer something that needs much attention by the both the National government and the national government.

‘’I plead to the Ministry of health to layout strategies for screening in all the nine Sub-counties in Bungoma so that cervical cancer can be detected early,’’ she said.

Mt. Elgon sub-county needs immediate attention in health sector because health facilities are at a distant from residents whereby accessing emergency medication is a challenge.

She also called on the County government through the Ministry of health to help build laboratories, theatre and buy a generator in Sub-county hospital which will greatly help during emergency services.

‘’Sometimes when it has rained there is power challenge which makes health servants hard to deliver services thus loosing lives,’’ she said, adding that  if the ministry of health can have a program of bringing services closer it will be better.
