The Bhagwan Mahavir Jain Relief Foundation Trust is inaugurating its second dialysis centre in the twin cities.
The Bhagwan Mahavir Dialysis Centre in Ramdev Rao Hospital, Kukatpally will be inaugurated on Saturday, June 30. The trust will also be honouring donors on the same day. In 2011, the trust opened its first dialysis centre in the King Koti hospital.
The trust is also going to open an outpatient block in the same hospital on Sunday, July 1.
The Bhagwan Mahavir Jain Relief Foundation Trust was started by 16 like-minded Jain friends who saw the insurmountable problems being faced by people with kidney failure who could not afford these expenses and were forced to give up and accept death as the only option.
“Our mission is to improve the quality of life of people who require dialysis and cannot afford the medical expenses. Our only objective is to give such people a ray of hope.
Patients from all over country can get treated in both the centres,” said Inderchand Jain, trustee, The Bhagwan Mahavir Jain Relief Foundation trust.
The trust has tied up with nine associate hospitals in the City. Every last Sunday of the month, the trust distributes coupons to patients, which have to be produced at the designated hospitals.
To avail the coupon, the patients have to pay `400 at the trust centre and the remaining amount that has to be paid to the hospital is subsidised by the trust.
There are around one lakh Jains in the twin cities and most of them are into business, or have their own industries. Many of them are also high-level State government officials.
