Join LIFOK

Liver Foundation of Kerala (LIFOK), formerly known as The Liver Transplanters’ Association was formed in 2014 to organize people those who undergone liver transplant surgery. Liver transplant surgeries are one of the most expensive surgeries in the world. The life after the surgery is also very costly. Almost 80% of the patients in Kerala are from financially very poor background and hence the post-transplant life for them is an ordeal. Hence an organization was essential to help and support those in need. Conceived and formed in a humble way by late Sri K.S. Babu the founder President at Kothamangalam, LIFOK now has about 750 members including donors. Within a short period of time, the organization was able to bring the plight of those undergone liver transplant surgery to the attention of the government and the community. Although many demands have been met from the government, many of the demands raised by the organization are still pending unresolved.

Later due to the sad demise of the President Sri K.S. Babu, the activities of the organization could not go ahead as expected for a while. But in 2018, Sri. Chandrasekhara Pillai came to the helm and the organization was named as Liver Foundation of Kerala (LIFOK) and was registered under Travancore-Cochin Charitable Societies Act at Kottayam. Unfortunately Sri. Chandrasekhara Pillai also deceased soon. But soon after that an all Kerala Family meet was held at North Paravoor White City Hotel in 2019 and elected Sri Manoj K.R. as the chairman.

Today LIFOK is one of the most noted charitable organization. It offers help, information, and support to those suffering from liver disease and their families. In addition, LIFOK reaches out to support-programmes involving diagnosis, creating public awareness on genesis and prevention of liver disease. Public teaching programmes on the anvil – online and onsite. LIFOK also assist the economically deprived members by collecting and distributing financial aid, medicines etc. from the Government and non-government organisations, public and corporate firms.

LIFOK urge the Government to distribute medicines for liver transplant patients free of cost through government hospitals or through Karunya Pharmacies, give special consideration to government jobs, set up a special panel for liver transplant surgery involving the best doctors in medical colleges, and take government action to end the high medical costs and exploitation of the drug market. Allow some privileges, preferences and reservations to the liver donors in higher education or Government jobs etc. These are just some of the goals set by LIFOK to be achieved without delay.
