14-year-old Amil has more worries and pain in life than any normal teenager can imagine. He is suffering from kidney failure and both his kidneys have been removed. Till the doctors can complete an urgent kidney transplantation, he must undergo dialysis every day at a cost of Rs.6000 per day. He’s currently in the ICU at Medical Trust Hospital, Ernakulam.
Amil had problems with his urinary bladder from birth and was undergoing regular scan and treatment. But 6 months ago, he had a sudden infection and both kidneys failed. Doctors have recommended a kidney transplantation at the earliest at a cost of Rs. 8 lakhs. His mother is the donor. The surgery was scheduled for 31st of December, 2019, but they could not do it since Amil got high temperature. Once he’s better, the surgery will be scheduled again. His family is not in a position to meet these hefty medical expenses, and approached MicroCharity through our volunteers.
