A video which was shared by activist, Harrison Gwamnishu, who met with the parents of an ailing daughter in Sapele, Delta State went viral with lots of negative reactions as a Nigerian father refused medical assistance for his ailing daughter, Precious who suffers from Hydrocephalus, just because his church is against blood transfusion.
Her father who has a chat with Harrison, said he is not opposed to any medical help for his daughter but what he is actually opposed to is for a blood transfusion to be done on his 1 year and 7 months old daughter because it goes against his faith.
”We in Jehovah’s witnesses, we don’t take blood. I would not want to transfuse blood into the child. We will not accept blood transfusion. If in the course of surgery they would transfuse blood in the child, we would not want that. I don’t want my baby to die but that is our faith” he said
