World Kidney Day – Thank you from Prof. Atif Awan


To mark #WorldKidneyDay we are delighted to share some words from Prof. Atif Awan, Consultant Nephrologist in CHI at Temple Street who spoke to us about the National Renal Transplant and Haemodialysis Unit and the massive difference your ongoing support has made to the vital work that they do in CHI at Temple Street for children with renal problems every day.

Over 150 kidney transplants have happened in CHI at Temple Street to date, and with the continued help of our supporters we are able to make a real difference for children with kidney conditions who need treatment in the hospital. With your help, over the years YOU have helped us do so much for children with kidney problems – from funding critical dialysis equipment, redeveloping St. Michael’s C ward, building the world-class Neurology & Renal Outpatients’ Unit that opened in 2018 and so much more besides.

We’re also thrilled to announce that our 100minds 2020/2021 participants, with the help of their mentors have raised over €87k for a second haemodialysis isolation suite in CHI at Temple Street. Our immense thanks to each and every student and mentor who worked so hard to make this possible. This is the power of your support. #ThankYou
