Our Campaign Story

ends 31 Jan 2021, 11:59 PM

When I started to volunteer with NKF, I came to know that kidney failure patients need to go for dialysis 3 times a week and each session is about 4 hours! It is really a painful journey for them. Besides the physical pain, I can hardly imagine how they cope with dialysis treatment cost of over $2,000 monthly on a long term if they did not get the help from NKF.

I am Jui Ming. I have been a LifeDrops donor and volunteer with NKF for many years. I am blessed with a good health and job especially during this Covid-19. I am not a rich person but I strongly believe that together, we can help kidney patients and let them have a better tomorrow. We are not only helping patients individually, it also makes a significant impact on their family as a whole. That is the meaningful cause that motivates me to do more for kidney patients.

Dialysis treatment is for a lifetime. These kidney failure patients need our support to journey together with them! Let's show our support to them so that they know they are not alone. Come and join us for this meaning Run! Together we can make a difference!

About Campaign

Did you know, there are nearly 5.5 new kidney failure patients in Singapore every day?

The number of new cases has increased about 60% over the past 10 years with diabetes being the No. 1 cause of kidney failure. More than half who have diabetes are unaware of their condition.

Run Inspired! is NKF's inaugural three-week virtual charity run event. Participants can run at their own pace and space to help achieve a collective distance of 55,000km and raise $200,000 to provide Artificial Kidneys (A.K.s), crucial in our patients' dialysis treatment to filter waste and excess fluids.

Our run ambassadors will be sharing their motivational stories throughout the event to uplift the community to step out of their comfort zone to run for a meaningful cause and be empowered to take charge of their well-being.

Menarini Asia-Pacific, our main partner, will be donating S$2 for every kilometre (KM) covered by participants, up to S$100,000, increasing the impact of your participation.

So rally your friends and family members to run together for a good cause! To make it even more meaningful, you can start your own fundraising campaign to garner support and donations to help kidney failure patients!

About The Charity

The National Kidney Foundation (NKF) is currently supporting more than 4,900 kidney failure patients, about two-thirds of the national kidney failure patient population. Our patients are of the lower income group. Treating a patient costs over $2,000 a month, however, the treatment our patients receive is highly subsidised, with 74% paying $50 or less a month out-of-pocket.

NKF remains committed to journeying with our patients every step of the way in their treatment and rehabilitative care, advocating kidney health to prevent kidney failure and making a difference in the renal landscape to benefit the community.

Partner us in giving Life & Hope to our patients now!

All donations received through Giving.sg will be channelled to NKF General Fund, which will be used to provide subsidised dialysis treatment and holistic care for our patients.
