Rotary Dialysis Centre


The grant budget will be used to buy 2 dialysis machines and the related accessories to start a Rotary Dialysis Centre in Ludhiana having a population of 3 million. There is not a single centre catering to the poor while the private centre charge very high (one Dialysis costs around US$25) which is out of the reach of the poor. We will start this centre at a charitable hospital in Ludhiana which is already running few projects sponsored by Rotary. With the start of this centre, we propose the following charges:

1.US$ 7 from the poor patients

2.US$ 12 from the rest of the community
