Blow the Whistle on Kidney Disease! Join Peter Rufai, Fred Amata & More at the Kidney Trust Fund Charity Football Match



Kidney Trust Fund Charity Cup - BellaNaija -March 2015

Let’s blow the whistle on Kidney Disease!

Insurance company AIICO Insurance Plc have joined forces with The Bowtie Club to fight against Kidney Disease – one which has over 20million Nigerian sufferers. In this regard, they have organised the Charity Football  Match led by Victor Ikpeaba, Peter Rufai and Taribo West among other celebs like Bryan Okwara and Ene Maya Lawani. These Nigerian football legends would be squaring up against Nollywood veterans led by Fred Amata and comedian AY Makun.

The event promises to be a very exciting one with other teams from Sahara Group and the Galacticos joining the derby.

According to the organizers – “The Tournament is being organised in honour of Ganiyat Ogunfoworin who recently lost her life in India while battling the Kidney Disease, and who on her death bed asked The Bowtie Club to do all in its powers to ensure that more Nigerians do not go through the harrowing experience she just did.”

The tournament, scheduled to hold annually, will also see the launch of the Kidney Trust Fund aimed at raising N200 Million for kidney patients via social media. The Fund would be held in custody of the CSL Trustees Limited, a Member of the FCMB Group, who will ensure the efficient utilization of Kidney patients. It will also be hosting winners of a raffle draw at an exclusive dinner.
