By BBN Staff: Tonight, the Kidney Association of Belize (KAB) in collaboration with the Belize Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors (BELIFA) is hosting its annual Red Night Gala.
The event, which is one of the main fundraising efforts for the KAB, will be held at the Best Western Belize Biltmore Plaza and will run from 7 p.m. to 2 a.m.
Oscar Itch, president of the KAB, explained that funds raised at the event allow the KAB to continue offering assistance to persons with end-stage renal failure, as well as continue its education campaign launched in 2016, which is used to disseminate pertinent information about kidney disease. The event will feature live music and an auction. Itch notes that tickets are still available and interested persons can call 615-7128, 615-6861, or 615-3132 to get theirs.
The KAB, which was established in 2003, provides financial assistance for traveling and other expenses associated with getting treatment, as well as sponsoring one or two hemodialysis treatments, as well as counseling and support services for patients and relatives coping with the morbidity of kidney disease.
Kidney disease has a high prevalence in Belize due to the high number of cases of two of its main causes: hypertension and diabetes.
