Save Abigirl Makumbe, kidney transplant surgery

$787 of $30,000 goal

Raised by 24 people in 29 days
Abigirl is a young, vibrant, 21 year old who is in renal failure and desperately needs $30,000 USD for kidney transplant surgery to save her life.

Her family has always been caring and giving so it's time to show them our love and support during this frightening time.

Edmund her Dad is a former Makumbi High school student and now a school teacher in Zimbabwe who is seeking help from family, friends and well wishers to save his daughters life as his salary is not enough to cover this.

Our goal is to alleviate the financial burdens that her family faces with medical bills as they work on saving her life with a kidney transplant surgery in India.

Abigirl loves animals and is looking to study  animal sciences and become a veterinarian. She is currently a student at Makumbi High School in Zimbabwe.

Abigirl has three younger siblings who really adore and look up to her.

Abigirl is now back at home, she still is in desperate need for the transplant, her mood and spirit however has not changed, and she remains hopeful. She will have to visit the hospital again this week

Fellow CLC club members from Makumbi Visitation High contributed some medical supplies. Another group of friends got her medication from Botswana, sanitaries, groceries, fuel, and ultimately the attention of the of national broadcast - ZTV just to mention a few. So much time and effort was put into getting all this to happen there are not enough words that can truly express how we are thankful to everyone involved.

We please ask that you continue to share the Fundraiser with your network to keep up the momentum.
