"Please Save My Life" — Ekweremadu’s Ailing Daughter Begs For Kidney Donation

Sonia Ekweremadu Appeals For Kidney Donation

KanyiDaily recalls that Ekweremadu and his wife, Beatrice, are currently facing charges in a UK court over alleged human trafficking and organ harvesting of an alleged 15 years old boy, David Nwamini Ukpo.

The couple were accused of trafficking the ‘homeless boy’ from Lagos into the UK with the passport of a 41-year-old man, to transplant his organs to their daughter who suffers from kidney failure.

In a post shared on her Instagram page, Sonia said her battle with kidney disease is “challenging”, adding that the charges faced by her parents in court had complicated the current situation.

She revealed that she dropped out of her postgraduate studies at the University of Newcastle in 2019, after she was diagnosed with focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) nephrotic syndrome, a rare kidney disease.

Ekweremadu’s daughter begged anyone willing to donate his or her kidney to her to send a mail which includes their name, phone number, email address, and place of residence to “[email protected]

She wrote, “I, Sonia Ekweremadu, hereby appeal to the general public to come to my aid and save my life. 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 three years have been extremely challenging. The charges being faced by my parents in London presently are directly connected to my illness and have complicated the 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.”

Sonia noted that her family members have been advised against kidney donation as medical examination showed her case was genetic.

She said, “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.

“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, 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 challenge of kidney disease, upon my full recovery.”
