On May 3rd 2014, a case was presented to us by Nyangenya Bw’omanga. A boy 18 years old in Nyambaria Boys,  sat for KCSE and when the results were out he had a clean A plain despite being away from school for over five months receiving chemo-treatments.That student was supposed to join Medical school at The University of Nairobi last May.This boy is called Perminus Nyakundi, currently in Moi Referral ailing from Blood Cancer.

“I have come to learn he is a fighter and respect him cos despite the chemo-therapies which seem to weaken him can still find time to hold a conversation on his dreams and Aspirations once he gets out of hospital like he is in no pain at all.I have never met Perminus before, i came to know him through a friend who gave me his number and since then i have been trying to figure out how we can help our young Brother. Perminus is in need of a Bone marrow transplant in India requiring 5 million or 40k per a week’s dose for months totaling 6.4 million. Being just out of form 4 with no father and a mother who is struggling. Perminus a young man with a promising future, needs us help him fight for his life in getting the Bone marrow transplant , for its in that Reason that God purposed us in life; Be our Brothers Keeper. Contact Perminus Nyakundi at +254720371194 Or 469-215-5410.”

Without delay, We brought the idea on air and realized though we know him not, help is necessary. In one of our Health programmes we identified Dr Sidhe of Hawi Foundation through Rose Nyakona David,doing free medical camps in conjunction with many organizations in Kenya. we were privileged to get FREE SURGERY to be done in EMORY HOSPITAL through the foundation. the boy was expected to be flown to USA ASAP but some procedures had to be followed. Thanks to Dr Hagembe who cooperated tirelessly with the team to ensure the process is accelerated.

It is unfortunate that the disease doesn’t allow us much time, the chemo therapies instituted are not helping at all. Speaking to perminus, “from the lab results the cancer cells are still there after 7 wks of high dose chemotherapy.” this is worrying. so many attempts to bring him to our Kenyan media was in vain until 13th may when the Standard writer,(Glory to God) Francis koech from Uasin Gishu broke the news informing our kenyan fraternityfollowed by Egesa Fm the following day. The well wishers and many touched in diaspora made attempts to get him ticket too. Back at home it was a great act when o Sunday at Nyambaria high a total contribution of Ksh. 1,121,059 was made.

Many dignitaries have visited the boy and this week;The county government, Diaspora team led by Nyangenya Bwomanga, Dr sidhe of Hawi ‘Balozi’ Walter Omwenga among others. It is of necessity that urgency of the matter is taken into consideration. speaking to the boy, “Dr. Sidhe has left here now.he has said let the tests of the donor be done from this side.Tomorrow he is meeting the hospital’s Director & he will start processing a passport to ensure by 7 days I am evacuated from this place.”that was on Monday and that sounds to be good news. Today Tuesday 10th june, preliminary passport stages have been done. We thank God.

Our People from all aspects of life, family, friends, Community Leaders, Media fraternity and all who took part in this-God bless you. Your prayers are of essence and it is our hope to see Perminus well.


  1. Thank you so much for the follow-up and updates. Perminus’s story is so moving, touching and urgent. I wonder things like passports would have been processed kitambo in readiness for travel anytime as soon as results of donor typing come out. Also, I wonder if there is a plan B just incase Perminus’ brother doesn’t turn out to be a match, which is a possibility. The persistent of cancer cells even after aggressive and high dose chemo speaks to the aggressive nature of the cancer, and the need for urgent step before even the possibility of marrow transplant is rendered unuseful. God help this boy and many more in similar situations!

  2. First i would like to thank dr Sidhe for i personaly met him here in Arlington,he has a
    future for our kenyans,What he has done to this boy shows how he is a patriot kenyan.The boy is not from his place but a kenyan.We pray for this boy to get well and we will support dr.Sidhe to help our people in kenya,

  3. This is a moving story. The young man needs a lot of help and I thank God for all those involved. He also needs a lot of prayers because God is the ultimate healer!! Besides the bone marrow transplant, he will need alot of nutrition in his body to boost his immune system. Also detox the the chemo out of his body system because its poison which kills both the good and bad cells thus making him weak? I know this sounds strange but here is why I say all this, I was diagnosed with cancer back in 2010 and the doctors only treatment was chemotherapy which almost killed me. It caused perforation on my intestines so i ended up having surgery. I had colostomy and ileostomy. My kidneys were failing, i lost a lot of weight, I could not walk and many other problems. I had to stop the chemo and changed to natural treatment(plant based diet. No animal products be it eggs, meat, milk, pork, chicken, fish etc, no sugar) but first I had to do detox. I have been cancer free since 2011

  4. I am moved by th kindheartdness of some of unseen n unrecognized kenyan heroes. i salute all thse took n are continously supportin th young man towards regainin hs health. if u indeed are readin ths and u have a way u can help in any possibl way in kenya or frm th diaspora pliz. yes we appreciate ur prayers but monetary help is need. once again i humbly appreciate you

  5. its been a long journey and we thank God for the years he gave Perminus he has fought a tough fight he has finished the race, we need to give him a nice send off guys. Some things may be tough but through Grace, Faith and Hope all is possible. RIP Perminus and May God comfort your immediate family members and friends who have stood by Perminus while alive and when he died.
