A 39-year-old man, Ibietan Oluwafijimi, is in need of N7m for a kidney transplant.
The National Secretary of the Aquinas College Akure Old Students’ Association, Mr Lanre Abiodun, in a letter, appealed to members of the public to support Oluwafijimi’s kidney transplant.
He said the total money for the transplant was N12m but the committee set up by the alumni had raised N5m already.
The letter partly reads, “Ibietan Oluwafijim is an orphan who was diagnosed with chronic kidney disease about six months ago. He has since been on twice-a-week dialysis which costs N50,000 every week.
“He needs to do a kidney transplant which will cost N12m but he has been able to raise N5m. He, however, still needs more financial support to undergo a kidney transplant to save his life before the weekly dialysis eats deep into the already raised funds.”
Also, a letter from the University of Medical Sciences Teaching Hospital, Ondo State revealed that had been managed for end-stage renal disease at the hospital.
