The Kidney Foundation of Canada is committed to achieving excellent kidney health, optimal quality of life, and a cure for kidney disease.
About The Kidney Foundation of Canada
The Kidney Foundation of Canada is the national volunteer organization committed to eliminating the burden of kidney disease through:
- Funding and stimulating innovative research for better treatments and a cure;
- Providing education and support to prevent kidney disease in those at risk and empower those with kidney disease to optimize their health status;
- Advocating for improved access to high-quality healthcare;
- Increasing public awareness and commitment to advancing kidney health and organ donation.
The COVID-19 pandemic is now a reality and we know that these are trying times for everyone. For people with chronic kidney disease and those who are kidney transplant recipients, that stress may be even sharper because people with a compromised immune system face an increased risk.
The health and safety of our kidney community is our top priority.
At times like these, patients need your support more than ever. With the economic and health uncertainty impacting them, we know the demand for our programs and patient supports, like peer support and short-term financial assistance, will continue to grow.
Thank you so much for your continued support.
