Gurkhas left to die

AS many as 47 ex-British Army Gurkhas are on “death row” awaiting kidney transplants they can never afford after the Government turned its back on them.

Lawyers acting for the former soldiers believe many have kidney problems because they did not get enough water while serving Britain in hot climates.

Each served at least 15 years before returning to poverty-stricken Nepal.

It’s typical of our government not to care about those that have helped Britain. We should be paying for their treatment and not leaving them to die in poverty. Does anyone think the government will do anything now? It’s a possibility but why does it take until the country finds out until they do something about it?
