Evaluation of our Dialysis center by Dialysis committee chairman Dr Rajiv during region conference, accepting a donation of Rs 1 Lakh from Lions club of Payyanur

Lions dialysis center Payyanur, a project under Lions charitable society of Payyanur is the permanent project of Lions club of Payyanur. It was commissioned on 23rd July 2013 with an investment of Rs. 23 lakhs. Major part of funds were raised by Mega TV and Cinema awards night under leadership of Ln.V. Balan and his team of office bearers with the support of all members of lions club of Payyanur. 

It was my idea to start the dialysis center to be managed by lions club of Payyanur and our dream came true by donation of 2 dialysis machines, one by Mr. N. C. Prakash through Ln. Er. Ratheesh and second by Mr. A. T. Mohammed Kunhi through Ln. Jaffer. These two lions have continued to support us in many ways. The success of the dialysis center is hugely dependent upon the continued support by way of free space, support staff from their hospital and also monetary support by Ln. Dr. K. Gopinath, one of our senior most lion and Lion Dr. Praveen Gopinath, additional cabinet secretary. 

We are proud to announce that, till date we have done about 850 dialysis, of which about 280 are entirely free to the patients and remaining 570 at a very low cost of Rs.700/- per dialysis. We are grateful to PDG Ln. Dr. K. Damodaran and all the members of dialysis committee for their support. 

We are very happy that the present office bearers L. Jayaraj Kuttamath, President, Ln. Ajith Shenoy, Secretary and Ln. Santhosh, Treasurer with support of all the members of our club have raised an amount of Rs. 2.15 lakhs through a Mega magic show for this noble project. On behalf of all the patients undergoing dialysis we thank you for the first instalment of Rs. One lakh
