DAYA- HELP Foundation's Dialysis Assistance Programme

Dialysis assistance is one among the initial programmes of HELP Foundation. Almost 2.5 lakh people die of kidney failure in India every year. It is the third largest killer after malignancy and heart disease. Millions suffer from some form of kidney disease and many of them, particularly in India cannot afford treatment or care. HELP Foundation provides monetary assistance to the underprivileged, who suffer kidney problems of any kind, reversible or terminal, regardless of caste, creed, gender or religion. Western medicine normally recommends dialysis, by which the function of a kidney is restored through the use of blood filter artificially. The other option is renal transplant. Both are very expensive, and can be financially crippling for a family if the bread winner is affected.
The HELP Foundation initiative into this area aims to ensure that no kidney patient will suffer because of the lack of funds for dialysis, and also to prevent kidney failure due to diabetes and other complications. What is particularly distressing is the amount of requests that come to us and the youngsters who have promising lives ahead, but are unable to foot the cost of dialysis. Often these people bear the pain and perform dialysis only once in a fortnight, thereby putting their life in further jeopardy. This is where HELP Foundation steps in with support.
