Black K.A.R.E. stands for Kidney Awareness, Resources & Education, which is a project focused on increasing the awareness and prevention efforts regarding chronic kidney disease. Kidneys play a vital role in maintaining good health by removing excess fluid and waste, controlling blood pressure and pH levels, helping to keep bones healthy and assisting in making red blood cells.
