Refugee’s art exhibition raises funds for renal dialysis team

An exhibition of artwork created by a young Jordanian refugee has raised £110 for the renal dialysis team at Ninewells.

Minan Albomahdi and her family arrived in Scotland in January 2018 from Jordan, having been relocated as part of the Dundee settlement scheme. She received renal dialysis at Ninewells Hospital and on her 18th birthday in December she had a kidney transplant in Edinburgh.

Minan displayed her artwork as part of an exhibition at the Steeple Church which was organised by John Clark of Connections Café during Scottish Refugee Week.

Speaking about her daughter’s care, Minan’s mum Ilham said, “Thank you to everyone at Ninewells for everything you have done to help Minan. I am so happy she is well again.”

Accepting the donation, senior charge nurse Shona Borrett said, “I would like to thank Minan and her family for their very generous donation. It was very kind of her to think of us when she raised this money.”
