Muscat: The family of an Indian teacher working in Muscat is seeking help from kind-hearted people to save the life of their daughter who is suffering from kidney failure.
According to medics, Sharanya Nair, a 22-year-old student of Visual Communications at the WCC College in Chennai, India, has to undergo a kidney transplant as early as possible to save her life.
"Sharanya, who did her schooling in Muscat, has had a kidney transplant in 2006. She still suffers from kidney ailments and the doctors at the Madras Medical Mission have advised her to get her next kidney transplant immediately. This will cost her mother about Rs1 million (approximately OMR6,000). The monthly cost of her medication is around Rs20,000 per month, and she requires at least two dialyses every week which cost her another Rs3,400 per week," Pradeep Menon, a family friend in Muscat, said.
"Doctors have given her very little time and she needs to get the transplant done in order to get her life back," Pradeep said.
"Sharanya's father had also passed away in 2008. He was working in Muscat and was also a good performing artiste. He was a well respected figure and helpful to all in Muscat," Pradeep added.
According to Geetha Menon, Sharanya's neighbour in Chennai, Sharanya is like any other girl of her age — energetic, raring to go and cheerful. She is involved in her studies, hangs out with friends, is figuring out her career after WCC, enjoys life, does all the usual things a girl her age would do.
"It is sad to see that this young girl is suffering for no fault of hers," the neighbour, said. Those who wish to help Sharanya can contact Pradeep Menon at 99106111 in Sohar.
