Hello, our names are Maria Asmar & Achim Vogt. We organized this page to raise funds for an amazing person, A.B., a Lebanese 40-year-old man, too proud and shy to disclose his name.

He has been battling with a severe health condition since he was seven years old.

The fundraising aims to cover the cost of a kidney transplant. Hence a private initiative is the only way.

Please read for more details in A.B.’s testimony below. All medical reports can be shared with you privately.

You may ask why we are organizing a fundraiser in support of this courageous man. That is because he decided not to speak for himself and we respect his will. We aim to gather the money and help him continue his lifelong battle, so we took it on ourselves to carry this initiative.

With your contribution, we can provide him with financial support to cover the costs of the kidney transplant surgery, ensuring he can continue to live his life to the fullest and to finally lead a normal and dignified life.

For those wishing to donate outside of GoGetFunding, you can also wire funds directly for A.B. through Western Union to Achim Vogt at +49 151 23319580 (please fill the WU form and once you transfer the money, take a screenshot and send it by WhatsApp to the same number).

Together, we can make a meaningful difference in the life of someone who truly deserves it. Even if the total amount may not be gathered, your contribution will already make a difference!

Here is what A.B. wants to tell you himself:

I am A.B., I am a Lebanese 40-year-old man who has been battling with a life-threatening sickness since I was seven years old. This battle continues to this day.

By then, I was diagnosed with a low platelet count in blood, resulting in flowing blood and bleeding. I was hospitalized and I am still receiving cortisol medication, which is the only treatment available for my disease.

In 2019, my kidneys were discovered to be 50% functional, and I was treated for three years until I developed lupus, a chronic inflammatory condition. This occurs when the immune system assaults the body's own cells and organs. Creatinine levels in the blood began to increase alarmingly and did not respond to cortisone until the kidneys were irreversibly destroyed and dialysis began three times a week for four hours.

In addition, I began to suffer from the treatment itself, as corticosteroid medications (such as cortisone) made my blood clogged which stops the dialysis machine from working due to my frequent corticosteroid therapy.

Therefore, being deprived from dialysis will put me in a high risk of getting poisoned and will threaten my life.

The only solution for my case is a kidney transplant in order to save my life, to live for once a normal life, and to have the chance to work and prove myself like a normal 40-year-old man.

This surgery will cost approximately 45,000 US dollars for one kidney which is impossible for me to cover.

I would like to thank each one of you for considering my case.
