Trinidad & Tobago: Tobago woman to get surgery after begging on social media, NWRHA says

After a tearful Facebook post begging for medical attention, the North West Regional Health Authority (NWRHA) has scheduled an orthopaedic surgery for Cindy Sammy.

The Tobago resident took to Facebook earlier on Thursday to post images of her x-rays to highlight her plight. Accompanying the photos were two short videos showing a frustrated Sammy pleading for help from a cot at the Port of Spain General Hospital (POSGH).

She tagged Tobago politicians Ashworth Jack, Tracy Davidson-Celestine and Farley Chavez Agustine.

Giving a chronological account of her troubles, Sammy said she was instructed to source the necessary parts for her hip replacement surgery.
