Dialysis is the process of removing waste and excess water from
blood, and is used to perform the functions of the kidney for people

that helps remove waste from blood. It also monitors the flow of blood

This machine was much-needed at the Panadura Base Hospital as none of
the hospitals in the area had a dialysis machine.
Multilac and Macktiles are confident that the doctors along with the
staff of the hospital will make optimum use of the machine and will
upgrade the facilities at the Panadura Base Hospital under the second
phase of the CSR project.
