Overview

Tamil Nadu Kidney Register (TANKER) Foundation is a NGO based in Chennai, Tamil Nadu. TANKER was founded in 1993 and aims to subsidize dialysis and give financial assistance for transplantation, medication and investigation costs to the underprivileged with kidney disease.

The Basics

A patient needs to undergo a series of tests / investigation before a kidney transplant. These tests include HCV RNA Quantitative tests, Genotype tests etc. TANKER has an arrangement with Lister Labs and Apollo Hospitals wherein these tests are conducted with the help of donations

How It Works

• TANKER ascertains eligibility of the patient with the help of documents such as ration card, letter from doctor prescribing investigation.
• The sum donated is paid directly by TANKER to the laboratory where the tests are done.
• The balance amount is borne by the patient.
• These investigative tests are quite expensive.
• The donation gives assistance to the poor patients.

Venkatesan Victory
Mr. Venkatesan a BE student (son of a coolie) had kidney failure in 2008 and his mother came forward to donate a kidney.
As the patient was very poor he had the transplant done in a government hospital. Some of the tests had to be done outside and TANKER stepped in to help out in the investigations.
This 24 year old is now back on his feet and hopes to complete his degree and help his family.
