Fr. Davis Chiramel is an Indian Syro-Malabar Catholic priest and the founder of Accident Care and Transport Service (ACTS) and the Kidney Federation of India.
He is known famously as the ‘Kidney Priest’, Father Davis Chiramel has been singularly responsible for half a million people in India pledging their kidneys for donation post-mortem. And, moving a step ahead of his priestly duties to the laity, he has walked the talk by setting an example for universal brotherhood and compassion—by donating his kidney to a man of the Hindu faith. He chairs the Kidney Federation of India, and serves as the general secretary of Accident Care and Transport Service (ACTS).
