Objectives

To relieve the sickness and advance the health of persons who suffer from kidney disease, through, but not limited to

GKF was founded by those who have gone through the traumatic experience of renal diseases and are aware of the effects it can have on not only the patients but also on their loved ones. In establishing this project, it allows community members to access vital understanding of the most sensitive issues a renal patient might experience such as the emotional upheaval, the uneasiness they feel through the various stages of before during and after treatment like dialysis and also the lack of transplant opportunities.

Although there are some charitable organisations striving to fight this aggressive disease, upon research we learnt that there is still a considerable gap in addressing the renal related issues. Such concerns range from the quality of life for renal patients, the provision of facilities for them, raising common awareness about prevention and treatment, external draining matters faced by those affected, general availability of recreational activities for patients and also the varied difficulties in renal health matters faced by members from different ethnic backgrounds in particular the Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities.
