Sponsor medicines for a poor kidney transplant patient
Subramaniam was a renal failure patient who hailed from Coimbatore. He underwent renal transplantation surgery at Sri Ramakrishna Hospital in the year 2004. To recover, he needed post-transplant medication, without which his transplanted kidney would fail. But there were no means from which he could manage to buy those expensive medicines.
TANKER provided an amount of Rs.6000 as a part of his post-transplant medication in July 2008. This amount varies from Rs.8000 - Rs.10000 per patient/month. Subramaniam is doing well now but constantly needs to find funds for his post-transplant medication from other donors.

What the beneficiary gets
A kidney transplant surgery patients are required to be on medication throughout their life. Anti-rejection medicines are expensive and unaffordable for many patients. TANKER provides medicines to such patients to last for some time.
TANKER ascertains the eligibility of the patient through a list of documents. Some of them include - Income certificate, copy of ration card, a letter from the doctor under whom the patient is undergoing treatment, all transplant-related medical records. Once all documents are verified and approved, TANKER pays the amount directly to the pharmacy. The patient can visit the pharmacy and procure the prescribed medicines.

Lifesaving During Pandemic
TANKER is continuing to provide dialysis for our patients even during this pandemic period as dialysis is a life saving service which cannot be stopped for any reason. Our TANKER staff are all going that extra mile risking their own lives to serve the needy. We at TANKER realise that it is our responsibility to ensure their safety and also reward them for their service in this crucial time. Some of our staff are staying in the Unit to ensure uninterrupted service. Their food and other necessities are being taken care of by TANKER. Others who are travelling are asked to commute by taxi and we are taking care of their travel expenses. Those who are working are receiving not just OT but special allowances to motivate and encourage them. They are provided with PPE, sanitisers and other protective necessities for their safety. We also provide sanitisers and masks for all the patients and their families as we do realise they cannot afford these expenses and their safety is equally important to us. The patient's immunity is already compromised; they are vulnerable to attract viruses easily.
To cover all these expenses we are forced to incur unexpected huge expenses and surely this calls for help from good samaritans like yourself. Your contribution to TANKER will have a profound impact in our delivery of kidney care to the needy patients.
