Felicia from Ghana needs help for a life-saving kidney transplant.

Felicia's story

Dialysis session twice every week has completely taken away everything from 30-year-old Felicia Ayamga.

The former laboratory Technician has been denied the pleasure of contributing her quota to saving lives, after she was hit by a double kidney failure. Felicia, who is now bedridden discovered her condition a year ago, when she fell ill and went to the hospital.

“I started growing lean, so I did some checkups and we realised that it was a double ,” he recounts.

She has since been hospitalised, after her condition deteriorated. Following her ailment, Felicia has lost her source of income and only means of survival; her job. Although she is receiving treatment, she is excepted to raise a sum of $35,000 to undergo surgery, but with no source of income, she doubts she can raise the said amount.

“We have spent so much on her ailment already and there’s nothing left to support again,” a distraught mother of Felicia told JoyNews.

Nonetheless, Ms Ayamga is hopeful she will regain her health and return to normal life, with the generous support of the public and benevolent donors. Her mother further appealed to the general public to help them raise the said $35,000 to help save her daughter’s life. She narrates that, her daughter’s zeal for life has deteriorated as she no longer has enough strength to go about her daily activities.

“Felicia has been like this for a long time; she cannot rise up to do anything,” the obviously worried mother said.

Kidney failure occurs when the kidneys lose the ability to sufficiently filter waste from the blood. Many factors can interfere with a person’s kidney health and function, such as: toxic exposure to environmental pollutants or certain medications, certain acute and chronic diseases, severe dehydration.

However, many kidney patients have depended on dialysis for survival. Dialysis filters and purifies the blood using a machine. Dialysis doesn’t cure kidney failure, but it can extend your life if you go to regularly scheduled treatments. Another treatment option is a kidney transplant. A transplanted kidney can work normally, and dialysis is no longer needed.

Meanwhile, Felicia also appealed to the public to come to her aid.

“I’m tired of this ailment, therefore, I appeal to the general public and everyone who can help to support,” she said.
