Emmanuel Towouh came to the United States from the country of Liberia in 2000, enlisted in the Army in 2006, and served in a Field Artillery Unit. He was sent to the Iraq War, and in 2008 while serving as a gunner on a Humvee, was hit by enemy fire and thrown from the vehicle; his back and legs were severely injured. Emmanuel was sent to Germany for treatment and then to Andrews AFB for rehabilitation. From there, he was sent to Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center at Fort Hood, TX. Emmanuel was medically retired from the Army in 2010 and received a Purple Heart for his physical sacrifice of service to our country.

Emmanuel took some college classes prior to his enlistment and became a high school substitute teacher after his discharge from the military. He received a bachelor’s degree in applied sciences from Texas A&M in 2013 and tried very hard to gain employment as a teacher. With his ongoing medical appointments, he found it hard to find a job in the schools, so he attempted to get on with the US State Department and was unsuccessful in getting the hours he needed.

Emmanuel is a 40-year-old husband and father; he and his wife Welemator are raising their 4-year-old son. His kidney failure was diagnosed in 2014 and is related to the ibuprofen he has taken over the years due to his injuries. He has been on dialysis since 2017 and does not have much energy which makes life challenging, but it is keeping him alive. Emmanuel would love to get back to working out at the gym and being physically active playing soccer, bicycling and hiking, and volunteering with the Red Cross. He and Welemator have a home service business serving seniors. This husband and father needs to regain his health so he can go back to work to support his family and help raise his son. Will you share his story of service and sacrifice to his country, and his need for a lifesaving transplant? Would you consider becoming his living kidney donor?

Emmanuel has enlisted the help of a Veteran's organization called DOVE Transplant which is helping in his outreach to find his life-saving kidney donor. DOVE will assist all prospective donors throughout the process and make sure they do not incur any out-of-pocket expenses related to the evaluation or surgery.
