Welcome to the website of the National Kidney Foundation of South
Africa. We hope visitors to our site will find interesting information
of a clinical nature, as well as useful and interesting advice on
preventing kidney disease, through healthy eating and lifestyle.
Our ultimate objective is to prevent kidney disease and assist in
the treatment of kidney patients, especially the poor. We do this
through education and awareness, research grants, funding of treatment,
and support for the indigent. Knowledge is power, and to this end
we also support the development of outreach programmes, international
contact and the establishment of a kidney disease registry.
To all our donors, benefactors and partners in the past a warm word of
thanks for their support. Without you we would not have been able to do what we have done.
“There is a difference between passive goodness and active goodness, which is, in my opinion,
the giving of one’s time and energy in the alleviation of pain and suffering. It entails going
out, finding, and helping those who are suffering and in danger, and not merely in leading an
exemplary life in a purely passive way by doing no wrong.” - Sir Nicholas Winton. If you would
like to live out these wise words you can show your support by making a donation.
