The National Resistance Movement Turkey Chapter Chairman, Hamza Mpaga is said to be in acute stages of kidney failure and already returned home.
This website understands that the NRM Diaspora League is mobilizing for Shs 120m for dialysis treatment.
The Diaspora League Chairperson, Abbey Walusimbi made the emergency appeal to his members on Monday.
“Dear comrades, this is an emergency appeal to help our Cadre Comrade Hamza Mpaga of Turkey NRM Chapter. He was brought back home (Uganda) for treatment,” said Walusimbi in an email sent to all diaspora chapters.
“Our comrade Hamza suffers from Acute Kidney failure – also called Acute Renal failure or Acute Kidney injury that develops rapidly usually in a few days,” he added.
The message emphasized that Mr. Mpaga is already in severe stages of kidney failure.
“Those who can please treat this with urgency since comrade Hamza is in acute stages of Kidney failure,” noted Walusimbi.
The fund is needed for the sophisticated and expensive kidney treatment known as Dialysis to be carried out from Mulago National Referral complex in Kuruddu.
“The money will help him pay for Dialysis Treatment, which is very costly, hence the appeal.”
In medicine, Dialysis also referred to as renal replacement therapy, is the process of removing excess water, solutes, and toxins from the blood in people whose kidneys can no longer perform these functions naturally.
Walusimbi stated that the NRM Diaspora Treasurer, Ms. Chairty Baira is in charge of collection of funds.
