For critical patients on the verge of fatal kidney failure, every hour of every day is a race against the clock. That’s why we urgently need you to take on The Longest Day Challenge and give hope to our most vulnerable patients.
We urgently need to raise €100k in a day to fund 5 lifesaving 24hr non-stop dialysis therapy machines. These crucial blood therapy machines restore kidney function before the onset of complete kidney failure which would result in a kidney transplant.
