We are a non-profit social development organization whose mission is to help children with kidney disease to be transplanted and provide them with a better quality of life. Currently in the first stage of the program we are working with the Peritoneal Dialysis and Hemodialysis Unit of the Robert Reid Cabral Hospital, where around 60 children are under this condition, however, in the future we will work with other hospitals, both public and private. in the country.

This training will be given by a group of specialized doctors brought from the Ochsner Medical Center in New Orleans, who will provide the training at no cost.
In the framework of this program, FUNDANIR (Foundation for Children with Renal Insufficiency) assumes the commitment to cover the economic cost of all the medical procedures required for the transplant of the patient. For this we will be carrying out activities to raise sufficient funds to complete these costs. At the moment, the goal is to transplant all the children who are in the Robert Reid Cabral dialysis unit, the largest number of children each year and thus be able to move to another health center.
In efforts to raise the necessary money we have created, on two occasions, a “THRIFT SHOP”, which was entirely supplied by donated items, both new and used. 100% of the sales of this store were destined solely to the transplant process of these children.
For March 8, 2018, the International Kidney Day was commemorated, we created the “Shopping that Changes Lives” campaign where some of the BlueMall Santo Domingo and BlueMall Puntacana stores donated a percentage of their sales for this day to
On May 5, a special performance of the musical “Snow White” was performed by the theater group Theamus, as a donation to the Foundation.
This is how the dream of reducing the list and the waiting time of the child population that needs to be transplanted is already a reality.
