What is World Kidney Day?

World Kidney Day is organized every year as an International Awareness Moment about one of the vital parts of the human body known as the “Kidney,” which removes waste products and excess fluid from the body. These waste products and excess fluid are removed through the urine. It is celebrated each year on every second Thursday in March. For raising awareness among everyone about the information on preventative behaviors, awareness of risk factors, and understanding of living with kidney disease.

This helps people to understand each other’s difficulties and to be Precautious about their daily doings. This event is held worldwide in hundreds of places. Participants of all ages take part in marathons and alot of other activities, which educate them about working and diseases of the kidney and how to take adequate countermeasures.


It is very significant for us to celebrate World Kidney Day (WKD) because until we aren’t aware of the fact that how our kidneys are vital for us to be taken care of, we will not be able to take specific steps to change our day-to-day habits which are unknowingly making harmful effects on our kidneys, which is why every year starting from 2006, the World kidney day event is organized based on different themes each year.

When someone is aware of the symptoms and effects of kidney-related diseases, they will try their best to avoid harmful acts. Which ultimately reduces the rate and impact of kidney disease and related global health problems, leading a better and healthy future.

Also, any amount of money collected from Donations and Funding is used to help the unwell and for the families of diseased.
