The Saudi government has offered treatment to a Nigerian family who gave birth to conjoined twins.
The babies will be operated on at the King Salman Humanitarian and Relief Center.
Hassana and Hussaina, who are joined in the abdomen, were born to a Kano State family.
The mother worked as a housewife in Tudun Wada, Kaduna State’s Soba Local Government Area.
She was delivered in late January 2020 at the Ahmadu Bello University Teaching Hospital, Zaria.
The girls currently share a liver and did not come with anuses for the excretion of wastes.
They were moved to the National Hospital in Abuja, where they stayed about eight months without undergoing surgery due to lack of funds.
A statement by the presidency on Thursday thanked the Saudi authorities for approving humanitarian assistance.
Presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu said Consul General, Khalil Ahmed Al-Adamawi got the support of the King Salman Foundation.
The body will send an air ambulance soon to transport Hassana and Hussaina and their parents to Riyadh.
The Nigerian government thanked the Arab nation and the foundation for the aid, and prayed for the success of the surgery
