Those who attended the 2016 ART National Conference will have seen a presentation looking at setting up dialysis facilities in the Gambia. It was an excellent presentation and highlighted how these facilities rely to a large extent on both charitable work and the donations of equipment and consumables.
Since the conference I have been in contact with Sailey Fladsrud the founder of the Ida Bass Kidney Foundation. Positive progress has been made with clinicians coming forward to offer their assistance, both surgical and medical.
Sailey has recently contacted me and hence my message to you all now. Please give consideration as to whether your units and Trusts are in a position to donate dialysis machines that you are replacing or any consumables that you may have, such as those from sadly deceased patients or those who have had transplants.
If you have then Sailey would love to hear from you and can be contacted by email or phone on; firstname.lastname@example.org or 07977 958 230.
Many thanks for giving this your consideration.
Best wishes and kindest regards,
