A cry for help in the Desert

When it rains it pours that is the summary of the travails of Mr.Ibrahim Ashiru. Two years ago life was like the proverbial bed of roses, a thriving printing business, living a good life with his family. What more can a man ask for?
Then tragedy struck.  he started experiencing severe pains in his abdomen, what was supposed to be a routine medical check up marked the beginning of a series of sad events in the lives of this once vibrant family. He was diagnosed as having severe renal malfuction ( Kidney failure), since then he has been to 3 different hospitals in three different states in the country, these journeys with all its attendant financial burdens has inevitable led to the crash of his business. 
When we visited him at his residence at No 78, cemetery street, by Ondo street, Ebute-Metta, Lagos, he was quite a sight that will pull at the heart of even the most cold hearted.Exhibiting all the classic symptoms of a liver failure patient, protruding tummy and swollen foot, he told us the many challenges his family has being facing but the most touching is the part where he told us about his aged mother mama hawley as she is fondly called who foots all the medical bills as well as the upkeep of the family since the collapse of his business, all these from her business of selling fried yam / boiled yam and beans on.We visited her at her makeshift ‘shop’ on Hawley street on Lagos island by Skye bank and there was no dry eyes amongst us after she was done narrating her ordeal and kept saying please help me oooh (e se anu mi). This is an appeal for an ordinary, everyday Nigerian like me and you, he is not a celebrity, he is not a soccer star, just another unfortunate citizen struck down in his prime with an ailment that doesn’t discriminate.Also for the sake of this aged mother who should be fended for at this advanced age not fending for her son.God bless you as you respond to this cry of help.
Pls Nothing is too small he needs 7 Million naira for a kidney Transplant at Awolowo Teaching Hospital Ile-Ife.
