The European Mediscience Awards 2021 is proud to announce its support of the charities BCCS and Kidney Research UK.
A charity collection was held at the event and the total amount raised, which was split equally between these, two charities was:
bccs provides highly professional and well‑supported Social Workers and Counsellors to help children and young people who are in need.
bccs works in the East End of London and Essex with children, young people and their families and schools to help them overcome emotional difficulties, behavioural problems and their root causes. The prime focus of the work is to provide an early intervention service to enable them to address difficulties that may be impeding their educational, social and emotional development.
Worldwide, around one in 10 people has chronic kidney disease, for which there is no cure. Here in the UK, 20 people develop kidney failure each day, and around 70,000 are reliant on dialysis or a transplant to stay alive. Over the past decade some progress has been made in treating kidney disease, but not nearly enough, with successive generations experiencing the same life-limiting health problems and inadequate treatments.
As the largest kidney research charity in the UK, nothing is going to stop us in our urgent mission to end kidney disease. We’re here to be heard, to make a difference, to change the future.
