TANKER Foundation’s World Kidney Day 2019, program started with a free Blood Pressure (BP) check for 3,000 people at Chennai Central Station. This program aimed to create awareness of high Blood Pressure (BP) which is one of the main causes of kidney failure. This year the World Kidney Day, which is a joint initiative of the International Federation of Kidney Foundations (IFKF) and the International Society of Nephrology (ISN) is focusing on Kidney Health for Everyone Everywhere. Awareness leaflets on kidney disease were distributed by TANKER’s Auto driver patients and TANKER Staff in Ambattur, Vellore, Thiruverkadu, Madurai, Coimbatore, Retteri, and Nungambakkam.
TANKER has planned other awareness programmes and screening camps throughout the month. Kidney disease can affect anybody and the World Kidney Day helps in bringing about awareness of this terrible disease. Actor Mr. Suriya TANKER’S Goodwill Ambassador also tweeted “Take care of your kidneys by exercising, drinking more water and eating less salt and sugar.
