Kidney Transplant for Muyiwa in India

Kidney Transplant for Muyiwa in India


Muyiwa suddenly came down with Chronic Kidney Disease in December 2016. He is a 30 years old Nigerian undergraduate, who lost his father in 2015. His mother is a poor widow who has nothing to financially support his dialysis sessions. Muyiwa needs 3 sessions a week, costing equivalent of $1000 per week. He needs $65,000 for Kidney Transplant in India. Muyiwa has gone through 16 sessions of dialysis, now he has not been able to proceed for lack of funds. Let's save this young life.

A young man of 30 years old, a Nigerian undergraduate, fatherless, wakes up one day in December 2016 with weakness in the body. One test led to another and eventually he was diagnosed of Chronic Kidney Disease. Muyiwa is a young man with promising future, but for this disease that has grounded him. The whole neighborhood has contributed money: women, men and even children, but it's all a far cry from what is needed. That is why I have come to you.


Your donation to this Save - a- Soul project will keep Muyiwa alive. He will be able to pursue his dream of becoming a Building Technology Expert. His poor mother who lost her husband 2 years ago will not be bereaved of Muyiwa. The neighborhood will not lose this young promising man. This is an URGENT CALL to SAVE-A-SOUL. Muyiwa has to be flown to India latest by January 30, 2018, he also has to continue dialysis sessions till that time. Please give your best.

Long-Term Impact

The direct beneficiaries of this project are his Family, next is the Bashorun Estate Community, Akobo, Ibadan. Lives that Muyiwa will touch if he survives; his mother, siblings, the community and the Nigeria nation.
