The health condition of 26-year-old William Bortey is worsening each passing day as he is unable to raise funds to undergo a kidney transplant.

William, who is sitting on a time bomb, has been battling the last stage of a chronic kidney failure disease and has now been diagnosed with damage of his liver.

The severe kidney and liver damage is causing a constant bulge in his stomach. At the moment, William's life is solely dependent on dialysis and a kidney transplant.

The dialysis treatment is also very expensive for this sick man and his family, who are farmers. They spend almost GH¢600 every week on this treatment.

"We spend almost GH¢600 only on dialysis every week, which he has to go twice every week," William's mother told GhanaWeb in an interview.

GhanaWeb was able to raise an amount of GH¢6,340 out of the GH¢160,000 needed for the transplant, in July 2020 when we first broke his story. Click here for his story.

The monies from generous Ghanaians is what enabled the 26-year-old patient receive his dialysis treatment to this point. He is therefore appealing to Ghanaians to help save him from dying as his condition keeps deteriorating.
