Save Pintu Chakma`s Life

Click for details

On behalf of a friend - Rana Jyoti Chakma (tel. +971 -50 -5907 683, Abu Dhabi) I am making an Appeal through Bangla-Sydney website for financial help, on compassionate ground, for the kidney treatment of Rana`s cousin Pintu Chakma (a 33 year old family man) of Khagrachari. Rana used to study (UNSW) in Sydney in the early nineties and now teaching in the United Arab Emirates.

Pintu`s both kidneys have failed, he is currently on dialysis, and is under treatment of renal specialist Dr Sarwar Iqbal at Birdem Hospital Dhaka. Pintu is the main income source for a large family, and it is unfortunate and sad that he is now in need of a urgent kidney transplant.

Family members and others have kindly offered to donate a kidney if compatible, however the complex pre-testing, tissue matching and transplant operation, and subsequent long-term stabilisation and maintenance of transplanted kidney requires significant amount of cash. While Rana is helping and an appeal is concurrently being run by the Daily Star newspaper (2 August 2009) in Bangladesh (Inu Chakma, Account No. 4795, Bangladesh Krishi Bank, Khagrachari Branch) any amount you donate will greatly help Pintu`s treatment and long term well being of him and his distressed family.

Donations in Sydney can be made to his brother in law`s account (Chatswood) - Account Name: Tanu Murang, BSB No. 062 140, Account No. 1070 1744, Commonwealth Bank. Please mention your name and refer your donation is for `PINTU`. Donation can also be directly made to Tanu by contacting him on Mob: 0413 924 509, or email:

Thank you kindly for your consideration and support.

Kind regards
