Catholic aid group to set up kidney dialysis clinic in Guadalajara
Guadalajara, Mexico, Mar 7, 2019 / 07:28 pm (CNA).- In response to the growing number of patients with kidney conditions in Guadalajara, Mexico, the Catholic charitable agency Caritas is implementing plans to set up a kidney dialysis clinic in the region.
Caritas of Guadalajara currently has the donated office for the clinic, but around $410,000 is still needed to remodel the facility and purchase dialysis machines.
To raise the necessary funds, Caritas will hold a gala event March 28.
Once set up, the kidney dialysis clinic is expected to serve 180 patients a week.
