Project Description

Region: Asia

Country: India

Location: Shimoga

Total Budget: $36,162

Area of Focus: None

The project is to help provide 2 Hemo-Dialysis Machines with a generator and an Ambulance to Hoysala Health care Centre, a standalone Dialysis Centre in Shimoga.

At present the only Dialysis Centre of Shimoga is in the government District Hospital with 12 Hemo-Dialysis Machines serving about 700 patients with chronic renal Disease per month on an average. As per the data available, over 1500 chronic Renal Disease patients need Dialysis every month in the City of Shimoga and the neighborhood. Thus there is a waiting list of 800 patients who are forced to look for alternate private facilities at high costs. Most of these waitlist patients are from the economically weaker sections of the society

Number of Renal Disease patients is increasing in Shimoga and the neighborhood due to increasing incidence of life style diseases like Diabetes and Hypertension. Inadvertent use of drugs, particularly NSAIDs and exposure to insecticides have further contributed to renal damage every day in this part of the world. Majority of these patients are from the economically underprivileged sections of the society. Haemodialysis is the only hope for their future life


1. Hemo-dialyzers Rs. 6,10,000/= each Rs.22,20,000/=

2. Generator to ensure continuous power supply: Rs.4,56,500/=

3. Ambulance to transport patients: Rs. 7,80,500/=

Total: $36,132

Project Description: Rotary Club Shimoga, [R.I.District 3182] is planning to help provide 2 Dialyzer units at the Hoysala health Care center to meet the demands from the community. This Centre has the basic infrastructure facilities to maintain and operate the facilities once provided at a nominal cost to the needy patients


The process of dialysis takes about four hours per person. In one

Dialyzer we can perform dialysis for three people per day and in a

month for about 75 working for 25 days, and from two Dialyzers it would

be about 150 per month.

The cost of dialysis would be about Rs.1000/ per dialysis and the

local hospitals are charging anywhere between Rs1400/ to Rs1500/

In respect of those who are income tax payers and who can afford to

pay , we have planned to charge Rs,1500/ to Rs.1600/. We expect about

25 % would be of this category.

In respect of those who cannot afford to pay this, we have planned

to subsidize the charges to Rs, 500/ only per Dialysis. [Just enough to take care of the cost of consumables]

We have drawn up schemes to meet the maintenance costs from Donors by

contributions by way of sponsoring / adopting the patients. We are

also planning and be able to extend the treatment free of cost to the

below poverty line and those who cannot afford to pay even this amount

of Rs 500/-. These types may be about 20 to 25 percent [about

25 to 30 patients in a month].

1. 25% fully paid. [Rs.1500 to Rs.1600 per Dialysis]

2. 50% at subsidized rates of Rs.500/= per Dialysis.

3. 25% free of any charges.

Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions.
