This may sound alarming, but Diabetes has been found to be one of the leading causes of kidney failure in Singapore. As the cause of kidney failure in 50% of new dialysis patients is due to diabetic complication of the kidney, a cure of diabetes will reduce the need for dialysis drastically.
Through research, KDF aims to move up-stream and support research projects that will lead to the prevention of kidney failure and the need for expensive dialysis treatment.
Under the KDF-NUS Research Fund, we are currently funding a National University of Singapore (NUS) project which seeks to find alternative treatment and possibly even a cure for diabetes.
Donate to this movement today to further medical research.
The Kidney Dialysis Foundation (KDF) is an independent non-profit organisation which provides subsidised dialysis treatment to needy members of the community. We support those whose income falls into the lowest 10% income bracket in Singapore, ensuring that this vulnerable group of patients will not be deprived of treatment as a result of their financial situation. We currently run three haemodialysis centres (at Bishan, Chinatown, Ghim Moh) and one peritoneal dialysis centre, serving about 340 patients annually. At least $4 million is needed yearly to continue KDF's life-saving mission. All donations to KDF will be eligible for tax deduction as we are a IPC registered charity.
