Dialysis is a mean of artificial replacement of lost kidney function in people with renal failure. It is in fact a life-saving procedure and is widely used as a 'holding measure' until a renal transplant can be performed. Most commonly, a patient might need multiple procedures of dialysis to keep life going. But for many patients, repeated performing of dialysis might not be an affordable option. It is to take this big burden off from patients that The Calicut City Service Co-operative Bank at Chalappuram in Calicut is providing Dialysis treatment to needy patients at affordable costs.
The unit in this clinic consists of 6 beds absolutely free for the right persons. This initiative has proven to be a big relief for hundreds of patients affected by kidney function failure. We have also given life to a City Charity Deposit Scheme to float capital for the expansion of our charity work and relief activities.
Up on considering the growing number of patients affected with the Kidney related diseases and the pain and problems they have to face in its treatment, the bank has made available better medical facilities near to its head office in Chalapuram, after buying the 24.85 cent property and spending over Rs 6crores. The newly erected 5 storied building facilitates much advanced medical facilities for patients. Presently, the former 6 units have been increased to 12 units and 36 free dialyses are being performed for free on a daily basis. The newly established dialysis centre was inaugurated at 3 pm on April 15th 2017 by Hon. MLA Dr. M.K Muneer.
