The Family of the Late Justice Scott Moses Ataba Anyangwe wishes to congratulate the Atanga Kidney Foundation (AKF) on the Launching of the Foundation and their 1st Annual Fundraising Gala. The mission of the AKF, which is to promote kidney disease awareness, organ donation awareness, and kidney disease prevention, resonates well with us, because we have lost our dad and husband, Justice Scott Anyangwe, to chronic kidney (renal) disease and we have also seen the life-saving benefit of organ donation. Our dad and husband suffered from end-stage renal disease (ESRD) as a result of hypertension. He was fortunate to have an altruistic brother, Mr. George Akande Anyangwe, who donated his kidney to him in March 1987 at St. Thomas' Hospital, London, UK.
We the patients of the Cameroon Association of patients on Dialysis and Transplanted Kidneys Bamenda Branch wish to extend our sincere and heartfelt appreciation to the Atanga Kidney Foundation for the financial rescue mission we received following the shortage of Dialysis material at the Bamenda center that lasted for more than one month. We received the sum of 607,796frs. Your assistance went a long way to sustain some lives, even though we still lost some of our brothers due to this problem. We therefore say thank you for the timely intervention.
