Support post-transplant antirejection medicines for a needy patient for 1 month, INR 5000


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 is required to be on medication throughout his life after undergoing a kidney transplant. The medicines are expensive and poor patients cannot afford these. TANKER helps such patients by providing them with supply of medicines to last for some time.

How It Works

• TANKER ascertains eligibility of the patient through documents, which include income certificate, ration card copy, letter from the doctor under whom the patient is undergoing treatment, all transplant related medical records.
• TANKER pays the amount directly to the pharmacy from where the patient procures medicines.
• The donation gives assistance to the poor patients.


• 1 month – Duration of time for which the medicines are supplied

Subramaniam a renal failure patient from Coimbatore underwent renal transplantation at Sri Ramakrishna Hospital in the year 2004. He is a very needy patient who has been struggling to find the money for his post transplant medication without which the transplanted kidney will fail.
Tanker gave an amount of Rs.6000 towards part of his post transplant medication with the donation from a GiveIndia donor in July 2008.This year we have decided to give Rs.8000 towards this as it varies from Rs.8000 - Rs.10000 per patient per month.
Subramaniam is doing well but is constantly needing to find funds for his post transplant medication from other donors.
