Sonia Ekweremadu’s Public Appeal for Kidney Donor Melts Hearts

Published

on

The daughter of the former Deputy President of the Nigerian senate, has cried for help for any possible kidney donation. News had it some months ago that Senator Ike Ekweremadu and his wife was arrested in the UK for getting a boy who was claimed to be underaged to donate his kidney to their daughter.

Senator Ike Ekweremadu

However, Since their original plan wasn’t fruitful, their daughter Sonia took to her Instagram account to seek for help as she’s been battling with a kidney rare disease since 2019 and has been moved to different hospitals outside the country just so that she can survive.

Sonia Ekweremadu

Here was what she wrote “I, Sonia Ekweremadu, hereby appeal to the general public to come to my aid and save my life.

I am 25 years old and a graduate of Media and Communications, University of Coventry. I dropped out of my post graduate studies at the University of Newcastle in 2019 when I was diagnosed with a rare kidney disease, FSGS Nephrotic Syndrome. My family has battled to save my life and has taken me to various hospitals, but the illness persisted and kept degenerating. I am alive today by the special grace of God. I am presently in London, UK, receiving 5 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 my immigration status.

The last 3 years have been extremely challenging. The charges being faced by my parents in London presently, are directly connected to my illness and have complicated matter for me and my family. I do not intend to delve into details of this unfortunate development as the matter is still in Court. I am however optimistic that the truth will prevail and it will end in praise to God.

In the circumstance above, I am appealing to anybody whom it may please to assist me willingly with a kidney donation in the name of God.

Sonia Ekweremadu before her illness

This appeal would have been utterly unnecessary as every member of my family is eager to donate their kidney to me, knowing that I would do the same for any of them. Regrettably, comprehensive medical examination showed that my case of nephrotic syndrome is a genetic illness and the doctors advised against donation from any of my family members, as it would likely reoccur. In the time that my father has been incarcerated, he has been diagnosed with acute kidney damage.

Anybody that is moved by this appeal and wishes to donate his or her kidney to me may send an email to [email protected] and include his or her name, phone number, email address and place of residence.

Please, note that under the laws of England and Wales, organ donation must be purely driven by compassion and therefore no reward is involved.

Finally, I have decided to commit and dedicate myself to helping people with the challenges of kidney disease, upon my full recovery.

Thank you and God bless you.”

Copied from Sonia’s Instagram handle @soniaekw

Her plea has since then attracted a lot of attention from Nigerians who are praying for her quick recovery, And some people are boldly speaking up on possibly donating their kidney.
