Widows in Need (WIN)

Widows abound all around us, especially within the walls of the churches and in most cases; some of them do not even have enough resources to take care of themselves, talkless of their children. And in some cases, the family members especially the in-laws are in the fore-front of unleashing hardships on these vulnerable women, who most times, their late husband’s might have left enough resources for them, but for reasons beyond them, are unable to access these resources. Thus, a lot of widows end up living in abject poverty.

STATEMENT OF FACT:
Kidneys play key roles in body function, not only by filtering the blood and getting rid of waste products of the body metabolism, like urea from protein, but also by balancing levels of electrolyte (sodium and potassium) in the body, controlling blood pressure, and stimulating the production of red blood cells. They are located in the abdomen toward the back, normally one on each side of the spine.

In the last few months, reports emerging out of both public and private hospitals have shown an unprecedented rise in the number of persons with one kidney problem or the other. Sadly, some of these patients have lost their lives; others stay alive by undergoing dialysis while waiting for kidney transplantation.

Kidney disease is often called a "silent" disease, because most people have no symptoms before they are diagnosed. In fact, one might feel just fine until the kidneys have almost stopped working.

Once the kidneys fail completely, the treatment options are limited to dialysis or kidney replacement by transplantation. Ironically most patients and their families do not have the financial resources to sustain sometimes twice weekly dialysis, lack of which has led to deaths and other complications.

KUTH PANDORA PROJECT:


The project is two-fold:

1. To establish a support group that will cater for the emotional and/or financial needs of individuals whose loved ones are faced with life threatening or terminal illness or those who have already lost someone to it. The group will meet once every week.

2. Launch a fundraising campaign for the sole purpose of setting up a highly subsidized dialysis centre to adequately cater for the daily needs of those with chronic kidney problems or other related situations requiring dialysis for sustenance pending when they are ready to undergo kidney transplantation.

OBJECTIVE:
The objective is to:

- Provide a support group where people can come together and share experiences.

- Provide succor and relief to patients diagnosed with kidney failure or related illness

- Considerably reduce the financial burden on family members and friends.

HOW TO SUPPORT:
The Foundation is open to support from individuals and corporate organizations in the following forms:

1. Cash donation towards the purchase of the dialysis machines (2 to start with) each costing approximately N3,500,000.00.00

2. Donation of office space to be used for the centre

3. Donation of consumables
