Project Description

Region: South-East Asia

Country: India

Location: Kerala.South India

Total Budget: $86,760

Area of Focus: Disease prevention and treatment

Idukki district of central Kerala in South India is inhabited by agricultural laborers, tribal and people of low socio-economic strata. Health care facilities are grossly inadequate here due to hilly terrains and bad roads. A community assessment study done by six Rotary clubs of Idukki district showed the necessity of having new Dialysis centers and upgrading the facilities in the existing hospitals of the area for the benefit of under privileged and economically backward people.

Medical Trust hospital at Nedumkandom is a well-known hospital in Idukki district offering high quality health care services at subsidized charges. It caters to the medical needs of the people in the hilly terrains and plantation areas of Idukki District. The hospital at present do not have dialysis facility and has got infrastructure for starting a full-fledged dialysis center with 6 dialysis machines.

Eldho Mar Baselios Dialysis Center at Allapra near Perumbavoor is a running center with 10 dialysis machines. This hospital is situated in a rural area where the people are mainly agricultural and manual laborers. A population of nearly 60000 depend on the facility at this center. But they have a long que of waiting patients for dialysis and addition of 2 more machines will enable them to increase the number by at least 20 more patients per day.

The proposed Nedumkandam dialysis project comprises of these two programs to start a new center at Medical Trust hospital Nedumkandom and upgrade the facility at Eldho Mar Baselios Dialysis Center at Perumbavoor.,

Timeline: Expects to complete the project by Dec 31,2021

THe project funds will be used for purchasing the dialysis machines and accessories needed to install and function the dialysis unit.
