Dialysis Machine Purchased for Hospital in India

John Dhyanchand Memorial

In September 2015, a check for $14,176 was presented to the Dhyanchand Family to be used to purchase a dialysis machine for Hope International Hospital in India in memory of long-time member John Dhyanchdhyanchand-memorial-check-presentation-for-post-640x427and, who died of kidney disease in August, 2014. $8,426 of the funds was donated by OSLC members earlier this year, and $5,750 represents matching funds from the Our Savior’s Endowment Fund. The dialysis unit will be installed in the “John Dhyanchand Kidney Center” at the new hospital, and will be used to serve poor and needy people who require dialysis treatment. The family would like to thank everyone who contributed.
