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.
