Ndubuisi Igwala is a student in the Department of Biology Education, University of Benin. Before now, he was a student at the Faculty of Agriculture of same University but could not continue due to complications from his health.
He suffers from Sickle Cell Anemia a blood-related genetic disease that is suffered by people from tropical regions of the world especially Africans. The disease is characterized by bouts of very painful debilitating crisis, swellings of the hands and feet, possibly stroke and ultimately death at a young age (usually in the 20s).
The attached graphic pictures (I apologize for the goriness) are of Mr. Igwala's hands. As it stands now, he has been diagnosed with Acute skin ulcerations (skin ulcer for short), a complication from Sickle Cell Anemia. He is currently receiving medical attention at the Haematology Department of the University of Benin Teaching Hospital, Nigeria. He urgently requires a skin-grafting surgery which is estimated at about 280,000 Naira (about 550 USD). Additionally, as someone from an indigent background, he requires additional funds for daily dressing and management of the situation. A daily cleansing and dressing is required which costs about a 1000 Naira.
I Knew Mr. Igwala as an acquaintance in Nigeria, and I feel indebted to draw attention to his case as well as those of Sickle Cell Anemia sufferers having lost very dear relatives to this disease.
If you are moved and will want to help this young man, please feel free to contact him on facebook at https://www.facebook.com/ndubuisi.igwala or +2348075759941.
His bank account details are as follows:
Name: Ndubuisi Igwala
Account Number: 0137030380,GTBank
PS: I will upload pictures of his test results and other supporting documents as soon as I get it.
I will appreciate if this can get to front page. Thanks

Wow...that pic is quite a stomach turner...with all due respect. I can't look at that pic again I didn't know sickle cell caused that. I will be keeping this guy in prayer.

Yeah, thanks. And I'm sorry about the graphic nature of it.
BTW..I've been following some of your threads and they're quite deep and well thought out. Are you a marriage counsellor or clergy?
|Re: Help For A Sickle Cell Anaemic Patient by Nobody: 5:16pm On Feb 20, 2017|
It's okay. Sometimes pictures say so much and paint the picture that words never can.....and those have.
LOL...no i'm neither a marriage counselor nor clergy. The only thread I wrote was the "Samson" one. The other threads were not my words but were inspired by the Lord. I just am a follower of Christ who is trying to deepen her relationship with the Lord..and also bless others with what I'm learning. I'm trying to be wiser and more intentional with my words (this my third time coming back to Nairaland since first joining in Dec. 2016).

Hello Seun, lalasticlala, mynd44, and ishilove please have a look at this and do what you can as you have done for others in such conditions. He asked me to help him publish his story on Nairaland but I told him a thread was created some months ago and I will call your attention to it.
Thank you so much
