Weʼre raising £5,000 to help Uncle Niaz travel to China and receive urgent kidney treatment.
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Uncle Niaz has stage 4 kidney disease and requires urgent treatment. He is a loving husband and father to four children. He has been to the best doctors in London however they have told him that he is unable to receive the specific treatment he requires in the UK, as his case is more complicated. He needs to travel to China in order to receive treatment and help prolong and better his quality of life. His health is deteriorating rapidly and his kidneys are failing. Kidney disease is broken up into 5 stages.
Stages 1 and 2 - Kidneys are damaged and not working properly.
Stage 3 - Half of the kidneys have stopped working. Blood pressure increases and bone problems occur.
Stage 4 of - Severe kidney damage occurs. 85% of kidney function is gone. Problems with filtering blood, hormone regulation, keeping blood pressure under control, keeping bones strong and healthy and producing red blood cells occur.
Stage 5 of kidney disease - Kidney failure. Patient needs a kidney transplant or dialysis to live.
Uncle Niaz is at stage 4 of his illness. The next stage will be the hardest to get through for himself and his family. I wholeheartedly request that you donate even £1 as it will make the world of a difference and help reach one step closer to the end goal. Just imagine it was your loved one in his position. You would do anything to raise the money in order to save their life, that is what we are doing. All we ask for is your prayers and donations.
