Paving the road towards a better future on dialysis

The Ida Bass Kidney Foundation was founded in June 2013 by Sailey Fladsrud following the diagnoses of her mother, Ida Bass with End Stage Renal Disease in The Gambia. Unfortunately, her mother passed away in September 2013 due to lack of adequate treatment. The charity has since been working with the Ministry of Health to improve kidney care in The Gambia. Also, to develop new services and improve the outcomes for people with kidney disease.
