Sonia had on Monday pleaded with members of the public to donate a kidney to her after she was diagnosed with a rare kidney disease.
The 25-year-old, whose parents are facing charges of organ harvesting in the United Kingdom said she had to drop out of the university on account of the ailment.
She begged that since her ailment was genetic, none of her family members could donate to her, adding that the donation came with no reward according to England laws.
