Construction Update

The Dialysis Center of Abhayam, in collaboration with the U Abbas Foundation is planning to operate at Kunjathoor - Manjeswaram. This is the area which currently has over 200 patients but has no facilities for diagnosis. The facility which is about to operate will accommodate 30 patients a day.

The lack of pain and palliative care is causing great hardship to the inpatients in our country. If palliative care is given effectively to patients returning from hospitals without follow-up treatment, their quality of life will greatly improve. In addition to the OP, a team of doctors, nurses and volunteers will start home care at Kasargod and Manjeshwar soon.

As said preventon is better than cure , Abhayam planning to create awareness about kidney diseases and facilitate early detection of disease by introducing a mobile laboratory which will carry out mass testing for general public for a nominal cost.
