Madam Fuseini Sakina, 59, was diagnosed with a Kidney disease at the Tamale Teaching Hospital (TTH).
She has been on maintenance chronic dialysis since August 2021, thanks to funding from the Wipe-Away Foundation, a process in which her blood is purified using a special machine, a statement issued by the NGO stated.
According to the statement her hemodialysis is currently performed three (3) times per week at a cost of GHC300.00 per session, for a total weekly cost of GHC900.00. This is in addition to her regular medication, which can cost up to GHC900.00 per month.
On Friday, November 26th, 2021, Madam Sakina received a donation of one thousand five hundred Ghana cedis (GHC 1,500) from the humanitarian foundation led by its Public Relations Officer, Osman Abubakari-Sadiq. The funds will be used to help her pay for dialysis treatments at Tamale Teaching Hospital, the statement added.
The sick woman thanked the donors through Wipe Away Organization for assisting her with funds since August, as well as wishing the foundation success in all of their endeavors
She also urged the public to help Wipe Away Foundation by making monetary and in-kind donations to enable them to continue their good work.
Wipe-Away Foundation has been covering the cost of her weekly dialysis through our door-to-door fundraising campaign in the Savannah Region.
