SMIC is a charitable trust functioning in the health sector serving the poor patients from medical advice to facilities and financial aid, since 1997. From the initial strength of a single staff Santhi has developed into a full-fledged charity institution with 100 staff and hundreds of voluntary staff and well-wishers
Dialysis is the artificial process of eliminating waste (diffusion) and unwanted water (ultra filtration) from the blood. A healthy person's kidneys do the function naturally. Some people, however, may have failed or damaged kidneys which cannot carry out the function properly - they may need dialysis.
The increasing numbers of kidney patients are at the verge of death due to the lack of organ donors. They are doomed to accept their final verdict failing to get timely organ transplantation. Santhi decided on the path and committed to serve the poor and needy dialysis patients in 2002 when the cost of a dialysis hovered between Rs. 1,000 to Rs. 2,000, depending the hospital facilities. Those who can't afford it seek Santhi's support and we continue our service till date with a monthly average of 2000 dialysis in which 1500 dialysis are FREE of cost and the rest at a subsidized rate with the support of our well wishers and various trusts.
