In his speech, Dr Sadashiva thanked Rotary Club of Mangalore for this noble initiative and wished that more organizations come forward to help the needy as five more machines are required to meet the demand.
The number of patients needing dialysis is on the rise due to increased cases of diabetes, hypertension, kidney diseases etc. This procedure of dialysis is a life-saving measure. There are 24 machines functioning continuously at Wenlock, 180 patients are on the list, and a total of 1200 dialysis cycles are done every month.
