Islamabad A poor employee (BPS-2) of the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS), whose only kidney has failed, needs immediate financial help from well-off people for transplantation.

Asghar Alim, who is a laboratory assistant, has been advised kidney transplant that would cost Rs850,000 as no free facility is available in government hospitals.

A friend of Asghar Alim said that senior doctors and colleagues have so far arranged for an amount of Rs650,000 for his surgery but still he is short of Rs200,000, which are required to be arranged on emergency basis.

He said that a medical specialist, who did not want his name to be disclosed, had donated Rs200,000, another senior doctor had given Rs100,000, while colleagues of the patient have arranged Rs350,000.
