    • An initiative to break the mundane days for those undergoing dialysis
    • The event also saw fun activities and a stand-up comedy by Kalakka Povadhu Yaaru fame Azhar and Team

     Kauvery Hospital Chennai, a unit of Kauvery Group of Hospitals, a leading multispecialty healthcare chain in Tamil Nadu, hosted a talent show for those undergoing dialysis treatments. The initiative was part of World Kidney Day 2022, helping the patients break the mundanity in their lives.

    The event was filled with fun activities and games, talent show and a stand-up comedy session by Kalakka Povadhu Yaaru fame Azhar and team. The participants exhibited their talents in classical dance forms, music and skills in games.

    The general myth that exists among people is that when someone gets diagnosed with chronic kidney disease (CKD) or kidney failure, their days cannot return to normalcy or they cannot live life in their own terms. It is to be noted that these individuals can still study, work or indulge in their favorite hobbies, but with adequate treatment and care.

    Speaking on the initiative Dr R Balasubramaniyam, Chief Nephrologist, Kauvery Hospital Chennai said, “Living with Kidney Disease is definitely not easy, but there is always hope. For patients who are undergoing dialysis and awaiting a transplant, their days can be exhausting both physically and mentally. This initiative is to help them break the monotony in their daily life, where they get to spend their day like everyone. As doctors our duty doesn’t stop with just providing treatments and medications, but it is also going beyond, by improving their quality of life. When someone is diagnosed with Chronic Kidney Disease he/she should not think it is the end instead they should lead a normal life with right treatments and care.  It is not just them but also their attenders or family members who need constant motivation. We believe events like these will help restore faith in them, and encouraging them to spend their day with things they like or passionate about.”
