The chance of survival of a patient who is suffering from a kidney disease, Tochi Mbonu, now hangs by a thread after she became deaf due to the delay in a kidney transplant operation.
31-year-old Tochi, a graduate of the Benue State University, had been on dialysis for the past three years.
Her mother, Ndidi, told a correspondent on the telephone that she and Tochi were stranded in India, where they had hoped to carry out the operation.[caption id="attachment_34258" align="aligncenter" width="696"] Photo[/caption]
She explained that a non-governmental organisation, Dignity for the Helpless Foundation, which promised to raise N11m for the operation, disappointed them.
