Care to Teach Campaign

In the wake of the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic, countless dreams were shattered, especially those of children. The closure of schools and the economic strains faced by families left many young minds without access to education, a loss that deeply concerned us at Mumbai Kidney Foundation.

Our Response: Care to Teach

In our quest to empower the future, we launched “Care to Teach.” This visionary initiative aimed to provide hope, education, and a brighter future to children who had lost access to learning due to the pandemic.

Making an Impact, One Child at a Time

We are proud to announce that Care to Teach has already touched the lives of over 500 students and counting. Each child was granted financial assistance of RS 20,000 which covered essential education expenses like tuition fees, school supplies, and stationery. This support was not limited by any boundaries; it was open to any child in need of financial assistance. A total amount of RS 1,00,00,000  and more was gathered and given for children’s education.

A Lifeline During Challenging Times

The COVID-19 pandemic posed unprecedented challenges for families across the nation. Education became a luxury that many could not afford. However, thanks to the Care to Teach initiative, children from various backgrounds, including those studying at schools, naming a few of the many –  Smt J B Khot High School, Our Lady Of Remedy School, Mother Teressa High School, Pragnya Bodhini High School , Guru Nanak Mission High School , Holy Angels Kindergarten , mary immaculate girls high school  and colleges namely, Shri. T.P. Bhatia college of science, KES Junior college of Arts , Elphinstone college , Niranjana Majithia College, St. Rock’s College of Commerce and many many more such schools and colleges,  were given a lifeline to continue their education.

Mumbai Kidney Foundation: Nurturing Dreams

Care to Teach stands as a testament to the Mumbai Kidney Foundation’s commitment to humanity. It was not just a program; it was a beacon of hope during the darkest of times.

We express our heartfelt gratitude to everyone who supported and believed in this initiative. Together, we have sown the seeds of knowledge and opportunity in the hearts of these children.

Breathe A Life

Mumbai Kidney Foundation’s mission statement is “Sharing The Burden”. To this end, we are initiating three projects to provide aid to those affected by COVID-19.
Breath A Life
With an increase in COVID cases, we noticed that many people require oxygen either before they get access to a hospital or post-hospitalization when they are at home under COVID care. Providing oxygen concentrators for such people can help ensure that they can get the necessary treatment at home. We want to be able to provide oxygen concentrator services for such people so that they can decrease their hospital stay and care for themselves at home. If you know someone who requires an oxygen concentrator, please connect them with us. You can SMS/Whatsapp us on 9892008228/9820767272/ 7666674011/9930746030.
Requirement: A doctor’s prescription for home oxygen.

Ek Chammach Kam Campaign

World Kidney Day will be celebrated on March 8 with an aim to raise awareness about kidney and its importance. Programs and events are organized around the world as part of the awareness campaigns. People are educated about the kidney disease, risk factors and preventive behaviors. The aim is to reduce the kidney disease frequency and health issues related to it.

Every year, World Kidney Day has a theme and this year it is Kidney and Women’s Health. Chronic kidney disease or CKD is one of the common health issues, with around 195 million women affected by it across the world. CKD can lead to kidney failure and death. In India, 17.2 percent people from urban areas suffer from kidney disease. This year, on World Kidney Day Dr. Bhupendra Gandhi’s Amar Gandhi Foundation (AGF) is initiating a campaign called Ek Chammach Kam (One spoon less) to limit the intake of salt. Over 150 senior-most nephrologists from Mumbai are coming together to raise awareness about the negative effect of salt intake in kidney disease. They want to highlight the high salt consumption among Indians.

Dr. Bhupendra Gandhi says, “Chronic kidney disease is a ‘SILENT KILLER’; it usually has no significant symptoms until it has reached later stages where a patient is not left with many choices of treatment.”The aim of the campaign is to make people aware of the kidney disease and encourage them to make positive lifestyle changes.

The ‘ek chammach kam’ campaign will be run on the social media platforms of Amar Gandhi Foundation and Mumbai Kidney Foundation (MKF). According to Dr. Umesh Khanna, Senior Nephrologist & Chairman of Mumbai Kidney Foundation, “Women in particular love eating ‘chatpata’ food, a craving that leads to excess salt consumption. They must observe and monitor the same, as well as ensure low salt consumption in their families.”

Senior Nephrologist, Dr Bhavesh Vora says, “People who are diabetic, hypertensive, obese or have a heart condition have a higher risk of kidney disease. In the light of all the eye-opening facts stated hereby, spreading awareness about a regular checkup of kidney health for early detection of chronic kidney disease is a must!” A free urine test and blood test have been organized by MKF and AGF on March 8 for early detection of the kidney disease. You can get tested at any branch of Suburban Diagnostics laboratory on the day.

Here are some data provided by the nephrologists: As per the World Health Organization, the prevalence of chronic kidney disease is estimated to be 8 to 16 percent in adults above the age of 30 globally. In India, 17.2 percent of people in urban areas are affected by the disease, according to a study published in the BMC Nephrology journal. One of the major risk factors is diabetes and over 69 million Indians suffer from Type 2 diabetes mellitus.

The numbers are expected to be 140 million by 2040. Another risk factor is obesity and it affects over 135 million Indians. In India, 60 percent of chronic kidney disease patients either suffers from high blood pressure or are diabetic.
