Kidney patient appeals for help to save his life


Dipendra Thapa of Syangja district, who has been diagnosed with kidney failure four months ago, has appealed for donations to secure funds for his treatment. 

Thapa, a native of Dhanthan at Khilung Deurali VDC in Syangja district, has lost his both kidneys and is waiting for a kidney transplant. Currently, he has been put on dialysis in Mumbai, India, where he was working as a labourer in a jewellery factory. He is living in the Indian city with his wife and a son.

In his appeal to all, Thapa said he spent all his money on the dialysis and does not have any money left for a kidney transplant.

According to Indian doctors, he needs around Indian rupees 700,000 (US$12,962). Those interested in providing financial support to Thapa can contact his wife Jamuna Thapa in India on 919172245828, Laxman Mahat in the US on 4692317550 and Dhana Mahat in Kathmandu on 9841276533.

A ‘Save Dipendra Thapa Campaign’ has also been launched on Facebook to save his life.
