Welcome to the Wellington Region Kidney Society Inc.
WRKS is all about: 'People Supporting People'.
In the last couple of years especially, WRKS has become very active and involved in supporting renal patients within the Greater Wellington Region. WRKS has established several initiatives such as:
* providing both CAPD and hemodialysis patients with take home packs (equipment they will need when they go home to dialyse).
* A monthly coffee group open to all patients, their friends and families. Come join us to share experiences, tips and support.
*Fistula Bands for all renal patients. See below for more information.
WRKS is always needing volunteers so if you have even just a couple of hours spare every month, please contact as at: firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest. Please support us!
Feel free to Contact Us for any further assistance.
Kidney health New Zealand has recently released the new videos for patient information on haemodialysis, transplants and other useful stories.
Our president Robin shared his own experiences with Kidney NZ to help raise awareness of haemodialysis and its effect on your day to day life. Our president also appears as the super star haemodialysis patient used as a demonstrative prop in other videos in the same project.
Follow the link to watch the video and find out more about the Kidney Health NZ audio/visual project.
