Donate towards a Kidney transplant

Mable Atemo a 2010 IT graduate of Makerere University lies in Mulago hospital on life support as she undergoes dialysis, to rid her blood of impurities. Atemo was born with one kidney, which stopped functioning last December. Since then, Atemo has had to visit Mulago hospital for detoxification (dialysis) three (3) sessions a week at a cost of between shs. 400,000/= to 500,000/= per session.


According to Atemo€„¢s unemployed mother, Yayeri Adiko a single parent, this sum becomes harder to meet as each day goes by. With help from friends and family, Atemo has been able to go for dialysis only twice a week as opposed to the medically recommended thrice. Among the key functions of the kidney is to remove toxic waste products from the blood, regulate blood pressure and control the amount of fluid in the body. A human being has two kidneys but can function with one. The long term solution for Atemo is to have a kidney transplant at a cost of 70m shillings in India. At the moment, she is only allowed to feed on apples, rice, cassava, beans, peas and posho.

€œI have two children. Atemo is the eldest. It is so painful for me to watch her like this. I pray for a miracle to get Atemo a kidney transplant. I cry out to God everyday. People have been helping, but the money has gone into dialysis so far. Atemo lives in pain, she needs help€„¢Ã¢‚¬„¢ explains desperate Adiko.

One can help Ademo by donating a kidney (only for blood group A), contributing towards her kidney transplant or donating some of the recommended food items.
