Our Campaign Storyends 19 Sep 2022, 11:59 PM
My tryst with dance started way back when I first came to Singapore back in 2010 starting with Ballet and eventually gravitating towards Bharatnatyam. I still vividly recall the early days going to the Sengpaga Vinayagar temple along with friends and looking forward to our dance sessions with Guru Amirthini. Needless the say the journey has taught me a lot and more importantly helped me hone various skills and attributes including hard work, discipline, attention to detail and team work. I have also had the opportunity (along with my friends from dance school) to perform at various events (including elder care homes like Narayana Mission, Community Centres) and have also won multiple awards at local/ international dance competitions.
Over the years, I have explored various dance forms including Kathak, Contemporary, Lyrical, Hip-Hop etc. In fact, I recently started choreographing dance events for my school. Dance allows me to express my inner feelings without any inhibitions while communicating with the audience.
I have also been fortunate to combine my passion for the Arts with my STEM background. In 2020, I founded Art: Connect (connect-art.org) which is a student-led ground up initiative connecting student art community to residents and patients of multiple healthcare centres. The core philosophy is underpinned by the slogan , “Art can, and will, heal the world”.
I see the Ranghapravesham as another stepping stone in dance journey.....
About The Charity
The National Kidney Foundation (NKF) is currently supporting more than 5,000 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.
