Lets create awareness for
Liver Transplantation to fight
the liver disease together
The National Foundation For Liver Research (NFLR)is an initiative by Prof Mohamed Rela who is the chairman and Manging Director of Dr Rela Institute and Medical Centre, Chennai. The National Foundation For Liver Research was established in 2012 with an objective to promote scientific research in liver disease, improving public awareness about liver disease and organ donation and expending access to life saving liver surgery irrespective of their economic background.
Improving Access to
Life Saving Liver Surgery
Liver surgery is an expensive proposition and a significant number of needy patients cannot afford the cost of treatment in our country. We have identified two liver problems in which expert surgery can make a big difference in outcomes. NFLR proposes to identify children and adults, below poverty line who need these operations and cannot afford it and carry them out at a nominal cost or even for free if necessary. The two diseases identified for this program are,
- Biliary Atresia where early operation on infants diagnosed with the condition can completely cure the liver disease or significantly delay the need for transplantation.
- Hepatoblastoma, which is the most common liver tumor in children. Timely surgery can cure the majority of these children.

Abhilash was admitted at 52 days of life with Biliary Atresia. His father works at a private firm and his mother is a house wife. He needed a Kasi procedure but his family could not afford the cost of treatment. Hence NFLR supported the surgery.
Baby of Kamala (Boy) was admitted at 38 days of life with Biliary Atresia. His father Mr. M.Pugalmaran is self employed as a tailor who works at home and earns approximately Rs.5000/- per month. His mother is a housewife. He is the only bread winner of the family. Considering the scenario NFLR partially funded the management.

Muhammed Feroz, a 2 year old from Salem, was diagnosed with hepatoblastoma at the age of 1 year. His father works in Oman as a labourer. His mother is a housewife. Due to the poor economic condition of the family NFLR partially funded the management.
Happy People Saying
We have approached NFLR foundation for liver transplantation for my son, they helped us for the treatment as well as sponsored fund and supported us till the surgery ended. Thanks for the help. We never forget this godly help till our death.
NFLR is one of the best liver related organization we`ve seen recently. They have consulted my nephew for their organ donation and research about the disease clearly. Also they arranged funds for his surgery and referred expert doctors. This is beyond the expectation from the organization.
