March is National Kidney Month

The Bahamas Kidney Association Receives Donation from Colina

Nassau, The Bahamas, March 2, 2022 – Colina Insurance Limited (Colina) is commemorating National Kidney Month by donating five thousand dollars to The Bahamas Kidney Association (BKA).

“Colina is committed to health and wellness in our communities and pleased to partner with BKA as they are likewise aligned,” said Maxine V. Seymour, Director, Corporate Communications, Colina. “We must do all we can to prevent kidney disease and support those in the struggle as it is a debilitating illness with daily reminders for persons who are impacted by it and their loved ones.”

Colina employees will support The Bahamas Kidney Association by making donations and wearing green every Friday during the month of March to bring awareness to the cause.

“Kidney disease is growing more and more prevalent in The Bahamas, impacting hundreds of Bahamian families who struggle with the illness,” said Tamika Roberts, President, Bahamas Kidney Association. “This makes the work of The Bahamas Kidney Association (BKA), a non-profit organization, not only essential but critical in the prevention and management of kidney disease in our country”. 

It is estimated that 10% to 13% of the adult population battle chronic kidney disease.

“We jumped at the opportunity to partner with The Bahamas Kidney Association to raise awareness in the prevention and management of kidney disease,” said Wendy Butler, Vice President, Group & Health Benefits, Colina Insurance Limited. “We believe that education and awareness are key steps to lower the number of Bahamians impacted by this disease.”

The Bahamas Kidney Association has a variety of events during the month of March including webinars, free glucose and blood pressure checks, dietary supplement assistance for dialysis patients and an essay & video competition for high school students.  For details on all of this month’s activities, visit, email or call (242)457-0990.
