More than 400 patients and their family members with a similar set of problems gathered together under one roof and talked to each other, heard people talking about their problems and most importantly – had fun. The event aimed to help dialysis patients by evaluating their awareness levels on the disease and self-care patterns, in addition to evaluating improvements in the quality of their lives.
Speaking on the occasion, Kamal D Shah, Co-Founder & Director of Guest Services, NephroPlus and himself on dialysis for the last 22 years said, “Through Aashayein, we wanted to show that dialysis patients can lead normal lives.
