Ujomu seeks N11m for urgent kidney transplant
Ujomu Chukwueweniwe, aged 43, has since 2016 been held captive by the pains and trauma of kidney disease, which is slowly taking him close to his grave. Chukwueweniwe, who hails from Umuolo, Onicha-Ugbo, Aniocha North Local Government Area of Delta State, has for nearly four years battled with kidney failure alone with an aged mother catering for him.
He is presently a shadow of himself with bloated stomach and tiny body frame, barely able to walk normally. He undergoes dialysis twice a week at the Federal Medical Centre (FMC) in Asaba, Delta, which costs N60,000 per session and according to doctors, would need to undergo urgent kidney transplant, which costs N11 million to survive the health challenge.
Chukwueweniwe, while appealing to the public to save him, said: “I am no longer able to work. The disease has taken the best part of my youth and my mother is aging at every sunrise. My dad is late. I need help. No amount is too small to help me, I am desperate. I do not wish for my mother to bury me. I want to bury her with dignity at the end of her sojourn, but I need to be healthy.
“Kidney transplantation is the key to my new life. Please help me with any donation. I want to live. The doctors at FMC have concluded that I need N11 million for a kidney transplant,” he pleaded.
Donations can be sent to Ujomu Chuks, 0018209821, GTBank and he can be contacted on phone: 08032520757, 07066874305.
