A Mother Of Two Appealing For Your Assistance To Go For Treatment In India.

A family in Thika, Kiambu County, is appealing to well-wishers to help them raise sh. 7 million to send their daughter to India for specialised treatment.

Early this year, Gladys Kamande, a mother of two, underwent an operation to remove fibroids, an operation that was quite successful but later developed secondary complications that led her to be admitted in Kenyatta National Hospital, suffering from a pulmonary ailment. She has now lost her vision and urgently needs some intensive care treatment in India due to chest pains and difficulty in breathing.

With the help of friends and well-wishers, she was able raise the sh. 650,000 bill at the hospital to secure her release in April this year. She is currently in a lifesaving machine and under home care after they were released from Kenyatta National Hospital in April. The family spends about sh. 20,000 monthly on medication, something that has exhausted all their resources.

Gladys has been a businesslady in Mwiki, Nairobi but for last one year has not been able to fully manage her work due to the illness. Her husband left her when the burden of her ailment and the hospital bill became too much, leaving her to fate.

When the disease started taking a toll on her, she moved to her parents’ home in Starehe, Estate Thika where is under the care of her aging mother.

Her to kids are both in secondary school and it has been a tall order to raise their school fees at her current condition.

The family is now appealing to well-wishers to help them raise the Sh. 7million needed to cater for her treatment in India. They have organised a charity walk on the 18th Nov 2016 that will start @ 10 am at the Moi Gardens (Mukiriti) opposite Thika Main Prisons towards Makongeni via U-Shop and back to Thika Town.

To assist her, you can send your contributions to PAYBILL No. 829490.
