Kidney Relief in Disasters Task Force

About us

Shortly after the start of the war in Ukraine the ERA established the Renal Disaster Relief Task Force. Its mission was to support people with kidney disease and the nephrology community in Ukraine. Today, the situation for kidney patients in Ukraine is more stable and therefore there is no urgent need for specific intervention.

After a recent meeting of the latter  Task Force, a unanimous decision was reached to change its name to the “Kidney Relief in Disasters Task Force”. This name signifies an expanded mission, encompassing the continued support of renal patients and their healthcare professionals across countries within the ERA’s geographical jurisdiction facing natural and/or man-made disasters.

An open call will invite interested ERA members to join this Task Force, fostering the initiation of new projects aimed at providing relief and assistance for kidney care during times of disasters.

If you are in need of help, please contact us.
