“The above-named (Simbiat Sadiq) is a known patient being managed for chronic kidney 2 DM Nephropathy,” the statement said.
“She is currently on twice weekly maintenance haemodialysis, which cost seventy (70) thousand naira weekly.
“She will benefit from a kidney transplantation, which carries better outcome in terms of survival and good quality of life.
“The renal replacement is estimated to be about N7 million, with medication inclusive.”
It said the transplant could be done at Fortis Hospital, in Bangalore, the capital city of Karnataka, in India.
It appealed to kind-hearted individuals and organisations to render necessary assistance, making contributions to the following bank account details: Simbiat A. Sadiq, Zenith Bank, 2006196682.
