Keeping a strong conviction to provide progressive health facilities for the under served in the society, Ufone, recently joined hands with The Kidney Center and has donated a sum of Rs. 5 million to help in expansion of the state-of-the-art kidney related medical facilities at the center.
Ufone, as a responsible corporate organization, follows a very optimistic philanthropic path. In the recent past Ufone under its child health care initiative revamped the PAEDS department at Policlinic Islamabad which has henceforth provided facility at par with any private hospital in the country.
The expansion at The Kidney Centre, Karachi comes in lieu of the fact that there is an alarming increase of End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) patients who visit the Kidney Center every day and the available dialysis facility was being strained.
The existing dialysis facility will be moved to the new floor with 45 additional machines, raising the number to 67, along with allied equipment and professional services. This expansion will engage more than 500 patients and 83,884 dialysis sessions per year.
While handing over the cheque to Mr. Nasser Jaffer, Chairman Board of Governors, The Kidney Center Training Institute, Mr. Abdul Aziz, CEO Ufone expressed the desire to form a long lasting commitment between the two organizations and to improve the state of deteriorating health facilities in the country.
Mr. Aziz also acknowledged the time and effort put in by the pioneers of the kidney center and hoped that the general public will come forth and help establish more facilities like this one.
