Thinking Ahead

When my girlfriend was still in pregnant about five months pregnant,we knew since we are not financially stable and the situation the we were in ten chances were that we may lack money to pay the hospital bills and so we had to do something about it We decided to apply for NHIF and paid six months in advance so that come that time we will not experience any trouble when my wife went to deliver in May i was not worried because all i had to pay was five hundred shilling while NHIF dealt with the rest of the bills
