URGENT Help save Jennifer - Fundraising Efforts for Kidney transplant for young Banaban girl Jennifer Terikano Fiji

URGENT Help save Jennifer Terikano
URGENT FUND RAISING for young Banaban girl - Jennifer Terikano needs our help!

Young Banaban girl - Jennifer Terikano has been diagnosed with end stage kidney disease which has resulted in the URGENT need for overseas life-saving medical treatment.

She first fell ill in December 2010 and now the family’s only option is to get her to India for a kidney transplant.

She needs to raise $60,000 for this urgent surgery and we call on all Banabans and friends to get behind efforts to help Jennifer.

Our Banaban community know Jennifer and her family and we need to support their efforts in trying to get Jennifer this urgent treatment before her health deteriorates to the stage that this life saving surgery is not an option.

Please find attached supporting letter from Fiji Red Cross.

Mauri to All!

On behalf of my family I would like to thank members of our community, friends, and families for the support given to Terikano Jennifer Manikaoti on her overseas medical referral. The doctors in India carried out a successful kidney transplant yesterday. Terikano is recovering in hospital (India) along with her mother who donated one of her kidneys.

God bless
