Can you help LAKPA support kidney patients across our area?
We cannot do this without your help and will be very grateful for any donation you are able to make.
All money raised goes directly to help kidney patients.
Kidney disease is increasingly common and, in most cases a diagnosis will impact the rest of a person’s life.
This takes its toll both emotionally and physically which means that person and their families and carers need the support of charities such as LAKPA which is run entirely by volunteers, all of whom have had their life impacted in one way or another by kidney disease.
LAKPA is free to join and is run entirely by volunteers so all the money raised is directly used for the benefit of kidney patients.
