American Kidney Fund Issues Appeal for Disaster Relief Contributions

The American Kidney Fund today issued an urgent appeal for contributions for disaster relief to help dialysis patients who have been affected by Hurricane Ike.

Rockville, MD (PRWEB) September 17, 2008 -- The American Kidney Fund today issued an urgent appeal for contributions for disaster relief to help dialysis patients who have been affected by Hurricane Ike.

More than 80 dialysis centers remain closed after Hurricane Ike. Patients who have been displaced by the storm are receiving dialysis in other locations. The American Kidney Fund's Disaster Relief Program is a rapid-response system that provides emergency assistance in the form of block grants to local dialysis centers when a disaster such as Hurricane Ike strikes a community. Dialysis centers then distribute the funds to help their patients replace medications, food and household items and pay for essentials, such as transportation to dialysis if they have been temporarily evacuated.

"The situation in the region is very serious, and we anticipate receiving a high volume of requests for disaster assistance in the coming weeks," said Burton. "We hope to address these vital patient needs through the generosity of public contributions."
