Kidney patient fails to find free treatment quota at Bir Hospital
Rampur (Palpa), Jan 10: Ram Bahadur Sen, a native of Dabra in Rampur Municipality, is dealing with problems in seeking treatment of his kidney ailment due to financial constraint.
For two months Sen underwent regular check ups but now he is in desperate need of help. He had gone to Saudi Arabia in search of migrant work a year ago, but returned after suffering from high blood pressure.
During a check up at the Medicare National Hospital in Kathmandu he was diagnosed with two ailing kidneys. Sen is now faced with two dismal choices of either transplanting the kidneys or undergoing dialysis.
He has appealed for help as kidney transplant could cost him Rs 600,000 at the least. He has asked for any donor agencies, organizations or individuals to deposit their donated amount at the Rastriya Banijya Bank (RBB) account no 351000163910.
Although the government has declared the treatment of kidney ailment cost-free, Sen could not find a quota for free treatment at the state-run Bir Hospital. RSS
