The World Kidney Day event takes place on the second Thursday of March each year ‘Worldwide”.
The event is to raise awareness of ‘caring for your kidneys’ and the Cape Kidney Association will be holding their annual 5km Sunset Walk on Thursday 14th March in Sea Point.
The event is to raise much needed funds for our Indigent Kidney Patients at the various Provincial Hospitals in and around the greater Western Cape.
The Association is a Non-Profit Organisation therefore we depend on funding to continue our work for the Indigent kidney patients.
Please contribute by selecting the ‘donate’ button next to the barometer!
Cape Kidney Association
The Cape Kidney Association was founded in 1978 by a group of Nephrology Doctors and Nurses who saw the need to assist the Indigent kidney patients. Patients travel from afar as there are no dialysis units close by. We serve majority patients in the Renal Unit at Groote Schuur and Tygerberg Hospitals. Most of the patients are unemployed and some of them receive disability grants.
