“The event has not only provided a platform for us to exhibit our sporting skills but has also changed our perspective towards dialysis as well as life,” said Srinivas Rao, a participant.

The event had a good mix of track and field games, providing dialysis patients an opportunity to showcase their sporting talent.

The Olympiad was followed by ‘Aashayein’, a motivational and entertainment programme for dialysis patients. It had educational talks by nephrologists and a diet quiz. The highlight of the event was patients sharing their experiences with each other and learning how to cope with the disease.
