The specialist doctors at the Nnamdi Azikwe University Teaching Hospital (NAUTH), Nnewi, Anambra State, have recommended a kidney transplant for 20-year-old Chukwuebuka Peter Umechiedo.

Umechiedo, who is a native of Ezinifite in Aguata Local Council of Anambra, was diagnosed of a kidney problem in 2016 and has since then been managed for an end-state renal disease.

According to the patient, he has been on dialysis since 2016 that costs his family ₦70,000 every 10 days and he is the only child of his indigent parents. The young man who has been clinging to life has been on a weekly maintenance haemodialysis to stabilise his health, but has now been recommended by his doctors for kidney transplant as the best form of renal replacement therapy at an estimated cost of ₦12 million.

Now financially drained and with the Anambra State government promising to contribute ₦2 million, which is approximately, 20 per cent of the total cost, he is left with no option than to appeal for funds from well-meaning Nigerians, public and private organisations, and humanitarian groups to save his life by going for the operation. His details are Zenith bank ,  Umechiedo Ebuka Peter 1005758871. He can be reached on 08168865089.
