Cochin Kidney Foundation (CKF) is a registered scientific and charitable society* functioning from Ernakulam, Kerala, India that started its operations in 2004. CKF also works with many other charitable organizations like Care & Share for conducting regular medical camps for the early screening of Kidney diseases.

Treating kidney related disorders is as expensive as any other debilitating diseases like cancer or AIDS. The financial crunch and mental trauma of the patients and their families is heart-rending. The approximate cost for three haemodialysis a week, for one month for a chronic kidney diseased patient is Rs. 12000. And it does not end with dialysis, the recommended course of action is a transplant and in some unfortunate cases, the kidney gets rejected a few years down the line. Then it's back to dialysis and the story repeats. This disease is a night-mare for the ordinary man in India where country has a vast majority of under-privileged than the affluent.

The objectives of the Foundation include imparting awareness among the public about kidney and related disorders, giving financial support and psychological counseling to the needy people with kidney and related disorders and raising funds towards this purpose by way of contributions and donations from magnanimous donors and the society at large and other charity supporting institutions like the Kerala Chapter of Care and Share - USA, Pavos Foundation, Cochin, Melam Charities International and other such organizations.

It is the magnanimity of people like you that makes organizations like CKF a reality. And they need your support. Let us join together to help ease the physical and mental pain of many a suffering kidney patient. Help us to be a channel for your good work. If you would like to contribute towards this cause please mention CKF in the check or money order and send it to Care & Share. Your contributions are tax deductible in United States..
