WATCH: Nollywood Actor, Amaechi Muonagor Solicits Funds for Kidney Transplant in India

Amaechi Muonagor, the ill actor, has requested financial assistance to get a kidney transplant in India.

In November 2023, Ameachi’s cousin, Tony Muonagor, reported that the actor was battling kidney failure, diabetes, and stroke.

He further stated that the actor’s condition worsened, necessitating weekly dialysis and physiotherapy at the Nnamdi Azikiwe University Teaching Hospital (NAUTH) in Nnewi, Anambra.

Nollywood star Kingsley Orji posted on Instagram that Amaechi had quit the teaching hospital owing to budgetary limitations.

He stated that the sickness had an impact on his speech and encouraged fans and well-wishers to contribute to a transplant procedure.

“It has not been easy. He has been in this condition for months now. He wants to go for a kidney transplant. What we want is for you to help us for him to travel to India,” Orji said.

“He just came back from the ICU in Nnewi teaching hospital a couple of days ago. He was responding to treatment but not very well.

“We decided to bring him home because there was no money but it is not advisable. He barely talks well. Please, he needs your help.”

The amount required for the surgery was not revealed.

Orji also provided Ameachi’s account details and contact information in the caption for those who wish to contribute.
