A Visible Expression of Concern
"The sound of laughter has always seemed to me the most civilized music in the universe", - Peter Ustinov.
Making audible the sound of laughter - we consider it a matter of morality and courage and, more often than not, the spirit needed to rebel against the status quo.
The challenges ahead of us are very great, very basic - to provide more people with better health and care. Our challenge is the art of Living and not only Existing. We, therefore, have a special-interest group of professional social workers working in the field of dialysis and Kidney Transplantation. We are equipped to face the newer challenges like cadaver transplantation awareness programs, in a dynamic and effective manner.
A medical social Work department headed by Dr. (Mrs.) Sujata Rajapurkar, Chairperson - Association of Renal Social Worker & Transplant Coordinators, National Kidney Foundation of India, renders moral and psychological support to patients through counselling, maximizing the utilization of socio-economic resources and holding patients education awareness program. Often we support not only patients, but also their relatives by accommodating them in Santram Ashram.
