Mission Statement

Bridge of Life is a nonprofit organization whose goal is to share the gift of life with people in developing countries who are dying of end stage renal disease.

Description

Bridge of Life has provided desperately needed services in Cameroon, India, Ecuador, Guatemala and the Philippines, including opening dialysis clinics, contributing dialysis equipment, sponsoring kidney camps where people are screened for potential kidney disease, high blood pressure and diabetes, and training local medical teams on how to care for patients with chronic kidney disease.

Sustainability is achieved by educating local caregivers in addition to opening clinics. Bridge of Life has trained more than 45 nurses, technicians, bio-medical and doctors who in turn have touched the lives of hundreds in their local communities. Through local partnership, access to dialysis, and healthcare trainings, Bridge of Life is making a profound and sustainable difference in the lives of people around the globe.
