25 year old Sonia Ekweremadu had made an appeal to the general public to save her life by donating a kidney to save her life.
She made the appeal through a post on her Instagram page on Monday, 12th September 2022, where she also revealed that her father, the former deputy Senate President, has also been diagnosed with a kidney related disease.
“I, Sonia Ekweremadu, hereby appeal to the general public to come to my aid and save my life.
“I dropped out of my postgraduate studies at the University of Newcastle in 2019 when I was diagnosed with a rare kidney disease, FSGS Nephrotic Syndome. My family has battled to save my life and has taken me to various hospital but the illness persisted and kept degenerating. I’m alive today by the special grace of God. I am presently in London, UK, receiving five hours of dialysis 3-4 times a week. This is at the expense of my family as I am not qualified for NHS due to m immigration status.
“The charges being faced by my parents in London presently are directly connected to my illness and have complicated matters for me and my family.
“In the circumstance above. I am appealing to anybody whom it may please to asset e willingly with a kidney donation in the name of God.”
Her parents, Senator & Mrs Ekweremadu, are presently facing charges of organ harvesting in the United Kingdom, due to her ill health.
