THIS year's World Kidney Day, an annual event held on March 13, was celebrated in Swansea at a special fundraiser at The Verve, Uplands, in aid of the Renal Unit in Morriston and the Transplant Unit in Cardiff.
Organised Charlene Khoshb said: "These two causes are very close to my heart as they did an absolutely amazing job of caring for my parents during a difficult time.
"In October 2011 my mum donated her kidney to my dad which ultimately saved his life.
"The care that my parents received during the whole process was second to none."
She added: "I will never be able to repay them for that.
"The support that myself and my younger sister received from the Cardiff team was absolutely unbelievable."
