The message below is from Emmanuel Ugolee who needs your support for a major change in the health sector.
Mandela did not set out to be a hero nor did he have a knack for public admiration or recognition. He simply responded to his circumstances with his set of values and vision.
I am not trying to make a name for myself, I cannot help but commence this struggle for the millions who need me to. By virtue of my circumstances, the game chose me.
I have petitioned the minister of health and the law makers of the house of assembly to consider and ultimately pass a bill on the subsidising of the cost of dialysis. Why should it cost almost half a million a month to stay alive with kidney disease In Nigeria when it is almost free in poorer countries like Sudan and Namibia? Absolutely free in Ivory Coast.
Senators and the likes we have approached seem interested and willing to push. I will knock as loud, as hard and as long as it takes to get this bill off the bucket list.
But picture this being done without you, now that’s a laugh. So please, we need signatures only. 30 seconds after you follow the link below and you’re done. Target is 500 thousand signatures. You need to have seen my new 13year old friend gasping for air needing dialysis but having to wait in his mother’s arms for his father to confirm the money was on the way before he got on the machine. Broke my heart. Pls just sign. I beg of you and tell a friend. – Emma Ugolee
