A Mother’s Battle

A Mother’s Battle

A Happy Life Turned Upside Down

Once upon a time, before December 2022, there was a 52-year-old woman named Amaka Animba. She was a mother of five children and lived a happy and carefree life. Amaka ran a successful business selling kitchen and household wares in Lokoja, Kogi State.

But everything changed when she was diagnosed with kidney failure at an advanced stage, also known as Chronic Kidney Disease. Now, Amaka is fighting for her life.

A Costly Battle

Since her diagnosis, Amaka’s family has been doing everything they can to save her. They have spent a lot of money on her treatment, including hemodialysis three times a week. Each session costs at least N35,000, and on top of that, she needs injections and other medications that cost about N90,000 per month.

Amaka’s son, Emeka, shared that the family spends between N450,000 to N500,000 every month on medications and hospital bills. They have exhausted all their resources and are now desperately seeking help.

A Plea for Help

Amaka is currently at the Federal Teaching Hospital in Lokoja, where she can barely speak. The family has tried to raise funds for a kidney transplant, but their efforts have been unsuccessful. They have already spent about 6-8 million naira on medical expenses.

Unfortunately, the hospital in Lokoja does not have the facilities for a transplant, so they are looking to go elsewhere. However, the lack of finances is a major obstacle.

The estimated cost of the kidney transplant is around 18 million naira, according to the hospital report. Emeka, his siblings, and their father are relying on prayers and appealing to kind-hearted Nigerians to help save their mother’s life.
