Dubai Crown Prince, Hamdan bin Mohammed has paid the hospital bill of a Nigerian family that was stranded in the Middle East country.
CNN reports that the prince directed his office to assist the couple after he got wind of their situation from news reports.
Suliyat delivered the babies on July 1, two days before her planned return to Nigeria.
The couple were faced with hospital bills of over 30 million naira after she went into labour and delivered the set of quadruplets.
The babies, two boys and two girls, were born prematurely and placed on ventilators at the neonatal intensive care unit, increasing the medical bill.
They had planned to travel down to Nigeria to have their babies but were unable to so due to the ban on international flights.
The family, which had no medical insurance, was indebted to the tune of $120,000.
Relief, however, when the prince promised to assist with the bills.
Abdulhakeem thanked the prince for his generosity, adding that two of the children will be named after him, while one of the girls will be named after the hospital.
“It’s just a huge favour, and we are still in shock because we didn’t even know how to get the money. I had been sleepless wondering how to pay the bill,” Abdulkareem said.
