An ailing Kenyan journalist diagnosed with Acute Leukemia has moved the online community with an emotional appeal to well-wishers to help him raise funds needed for an urgent medical treatment.

Dennis Omondi, who was diagnosed with the ailment early this year, has uploaded a video on Twitter with a desperate appeal for help to raise Sh6.5million needed for bone marrow transplant in India.

In the video, a teary Omondi, who is a sub-editor at West FM, narrates how all his efforts to raise funds needed for the medical procedure have not yielded much.

DETERIORATING HEALTH

“My state of health is deteriorating. I am appealing for help from all Kenyans so that I can continue with my medication. I am admitted to a hospital with all the facilities but I can only be treated if I have Sh6.5 million,” he says in the video.

Omondi’s plight first came to the fore in January when he made a similar appeal to well-wishers and friends to help him raise Sh12million required for treatment in South Africa.

After weeks of treatment at Kenyatta National Hospital, Omondi was flown to India for specialized treatment. He was admitted to Apollo Hospital, where he is currently awaiting the transplant.

Omondi had already started the first stages of chemotherapy, which has since been halted for lack of funds. His only hope now is that well wishers will heed his plea.

“Kenyans, I’m saddened. I have been here in Apollo Hospital for more than 3 weeks without treatment. I have made appeal to all Government institutions, non-governmental organisations, and everyone, but I’m yet to receive enough money to resume medication,” he said.
