World Kidney Day 2012

World Kidney Day is round the corner and for the third year Vivian Corporation has organised activities to raise awareness on kidney disease, encourage preventative behaviour and collect funds for our local NGOs and Support Groups that support patients during their treatment. This year we have 3 activities planned around this day. 

1.  Raise Awareness through fact sheets, posters and media
2.  Raise Funds to Support Patients FUN WALK SUNDAY 11 MARCH 2012 and Kidney Care Recipe Book
3.  Patient Support Program Importance of balanced nutrition during the treatment of kidney disease through the use of the recipe book by Dieticians, nurses and carers with their patients

This year campaign is celebrating Transplantation and this is why we are collaborating with The Transplant Support Group for these activities.  

Alfred Debattista President of the TSG Malta - The Kidney is the most transplanted organ universally. In Malta, apart from a great number of kidney transplantees we have around 250 other renal patients receiving Dialysis or CAPD treatment, many of whom, live in the hope of one day receive a kidney transplant that will provide them with a better life. Kidney transplantees and renal patients form the greater percentage of our Group membership. Together with Lifecycle organisation, we are committed to provide these patients, dedicated care , both medically as well as morally. We also organise outings and, on a yearly basis, visits to LOURDES are also organised. We have also, recently, from our limited budget, started to assist these patients with financial support in needy cases.  So, any donations we can get through Kidney Day activities will go into our Donations Fund to further assist these patients.

I want to take this opportunity to ask you for your support during the World Kidney Day Fun Walk.  

The Participation fee is only 10 euros per person which will go to the Transplant Support Group - participants may wish to donate more. T-shirts and water will be given out on the day at a registration desk at Pjazza Tigne, Tigne Point. The End point is at St George’s Square, Valletta.
