Our Vision

Our vision is that no kidney disease sufferer should die due to lack of funds or lack of available kidney dialysis facilities.

Our Philosophy

The Philosophy of The Noor Foundation is that we should bring our much needed free dialysis services to where the patients need it most, i.e far flung, rural parts of the world.

We also believe that we should involve local, non-politically motivated members of the indigenous population to help us run our centres. We support these centres and give them the tools to enable them to become as self sufficient as possible.

We appreciate how hard our donors work and ensure that every penny that is donated goes towards the cost of lifesaving kidney dialysis machines and kidney dialysis treatment.

It is for this reason that we do not spend any money unneccesarily on buildings, and choose to establish our dialysis centres in government hospitals. The hospitals in turn donate technicians, nurses, doctors, electricity and running water to enable our centres to run efficiently.

Our most compelling belief is that we do not spend a single penny on administration or expenses. Every single we collect is spent on the purchase of machines or treatment of our patients, and all expenses are personally borne by the volunteers who run the Noor Foundation UK.
