Working for children with kidney problems in your area
There are currently over 1500 'kidney kids', and 13 of them throughout New Zealand are on haemodialysis, which means they need a transplant. In 2010 there were only four transplants carried out due to a lack of donor kidneys.
All children on haemodialysis must travel to Auckland from wherever they live in New Zealand and all transplants for children are conducted in Auckland where the only children's nephrologists practice.
