‘The Kidney Kid’ is the global corporate social responsibility initiative of Fresenius Medical Care, aiming to help children and families prevent chronic kidney disease (CKD) by learning about good kidney health. CKD affects millions of people worldwide and good renal health should start early.

Through the adventures of the superheroes ‘The Kidney Kids’, the initiative aims to ‘edutain’ (educate & entertain) children about their kidneys and how to take care of these amazing organs, in a fun and interactive way.

This website is developed to be enjoyed by everyone – children, carers and parents alike – learning about good kidney health and care can be fun. Enjoy exploring this website with the children in your care and discover a range of resources to watch, click, download, print, play and interact with. This site and the ad-free game app (which can be played and downloaded on APK/android or iOS/Apple devices) are designed to share the kidney health message in a variety of ways.


The Kidney Kid is Fresenius Medical Care’s ambassador for kidney health. This strong, wise superhero enjoys all of the benefits of his healthy lifestyle and wants to help children all over the world understand:

  • What their kidneys are and how they work;
  • What functions their kidneys perform in the body; and
  • How to look after their kidneys by leading a healthy lifestyle.

The Kidney Kid and friends are featured on this website; in printable activities; in ‘edutaining’ (education & entertainment) videos; via our fun, multi-level, arcade-style game app; and through community events.
