Life Saving During Pandemic
Dialysis is a lifesaving procedure for kidney patients. This pandemic has made many dialysis centers close down due to spread of infection. TANKER is fighting against all odds to ensure support to the underprivileged who otherwise do not have an option. Our staff, who are the Angels on earth as we call them, are risking their lives and providing dialysis against all odds. We too faced the challenges of COVID affecting staff and patients, but we have ensured continuity of our Units. We are constantly incurring extra expenditure purchasing, PPE Kits, sanitizers, fogging machines and other necessary protective gears. We are recruiting additional staff to overcome shortage of staff due to infection and quarantine following that. Our patients who are daily wage earners are struggling to purchase medicines as they are rendered jobless. We are trying our best to provide medicines for such patients. We also help post-transplant patients with financial assistance for their medication. The requests for this have increased many folds. We also wish to add on dialysis machines at Injambakkam and Valasarawakkam to help more patients. We require funds to make all this happen continuously especially during this Pandemic.
Provide PPE Kits and other protective gears to our staff and patients. To help more patients with medication and investigation costs and for fistula surgery. To do COVID test for our staff periodically at our cost and ensure their safety. We would like to add new machines at Valasarawakkam and Injambakkam our new units to ensure more patients can be helped. To buy fumigation machines and to fumigate our units regularly to prevent spread of infection. To recruit staff as standby to ensure continuity in providing dialysis.
To help kidney patients to lead a peaceful life when they are rendered jobless due to this Pandemic. We believe every person has the right to good medication irrespective of their caste, creed, religion, gender or financial status.
