American Kidney Fund Helping People

There were a lot of people getting transplants in America in 2019. Over 24,000 in fact. And not everyone has insurance or funds to cover a transplant. But then there’s the American Kidney Fund…

According to this article from Yahoo! the AKF gave grants to 1,400 people to receive kidney transplants and post-transplant care. More than 60% of the people receiving these grants were from racial and ethnic minority groups, who in general have fewer transplants than white Americans. Yet this group are more likely to need a transplant as more have kidney failure! So without these grants, many people would become financially broken and never receive a transplant.

AKF is also fully supporting the objective of finding living kidney donors.
