The Global Kidney Foundation is a UK-based charity that raises awareness about kidney health and kidney donation as every day 123 people in England alone die prematurely because of chronic kidney disease.
A Fundraising Gala Dinner organised by the charity on 20 October 2018 raised £4,000 for the Renal Department of the Royal London Hospital from 100% of the ticket price. Over 130 people attended the event held in a spectacular White House Palace in Ealing in London, the home of Prince John Zylinski, who was the host. Money and awareness were raised of kidney health, organ donor register and living kidney donation.
Celebrities, actors, fashion designers, models, business, community and political leaders all gathered to support the cause., amongst whom were:
Lea Mornar, international actress
Venera Tabakin, celebrity fashion designer
Miss Poland in the UK and NI 2018, Wioletta Tupko
Miss Africa Commonwealth
Miss Pakistan 2018, Taniya Khan
Miss India Goodwill, Parveen Rani
Miss Monaco GP, Lilly Iaschemic.
The charity works closely with the NHS Blood and Transplants and starts an awareness project now in Birmingham and London to raise awareness of organ donation amongst BAME communities. The project will offer free health checks and awareness of kidney disease prevention.
Global Kidney Foundation sponsors the British Transplant Games and the World Transplant Games 2018 and the upcoming games in 2019. The charity’s representatives and trustees attend many events to raise awareness, for example: The Nachural Business Awards, The MBCCA Awards, The Capital Business Hub events and many more.
