A middle aged Nigerian, Idris Eshoayeremia Abdulkadir, diagnosed of chronic kidney disease (CKD), has sought the financial help of well meaning Nigerians.

Abdulkadir was diagnosed of the cancer in December 2019, at Al Qassimi Hospital Sharja, 9 months after his arrival in the UAE in search of opportunities.

According to him, “returning to Nigeria was not an option because my family back home did not have the financial strength to manage my condition and the system in Nigeria do not cater for people with medical needs. Around May 2020, I was fortunate to be granted about 50 sessions of dialysis by Sharja Charity, which lasted until September 2020.

“During this period I applied for both residence and company license with the hope that meager profits from labour contracts awarded to my company could be saved for my transplant surgery. Unfortunately I could not secure a single contract or job since the establishment of my company due to my unstable health condition.

“In September 2020, I approached Sheikh Khalifa Medical City, Abdudabi for transplant and they assured me that charity will cater for it after my registration with them. After several test, I was told that my mum was a perfect match. My three siblings could not donate because they are hypertensive. My mum flew down to UAE in January 2021 in company of my younger sister for further evaluation at their transplant centre prior to surgery.

“On our first visit to the hospital I was told that their charity could not cater for the surgery since my visa bears Dubai and not Abdudabi. I was referred to Dubai Hospital and on getting there I was told that charity for kidney transplant is available for only UAE citizens and not residents”, he lamented.

Abdulkadir explained that since then, he had been making enquiry about the best hospital to have the kidney transplant.

“On making enquiries at various hospitals in UAE, I realized the cost of the kidney transplant ranges between #27million and #30million. Zenith Hospital, the number one kidney transplant center in Nigeria with the highest success rate have their total package in the range of #8million to #10million”,he added.

Abdulkadir is thereby appealing to Nigerians to come to his aid as his health is fast deteriorating and his kidney condition is at the end stage.

For any financial support, kindly send your donations to 0034673202, ACCESS BANK. Total amount needed #10million.
