Hey everyone, I am Raz from the band N.ONE (NationOne).
We are a local band and have been performing in the local night scene since 2013.
Before the Covid-19 pandemic, we performed in Singapore's most happening bars and clubs. Recently we just released our first single Hurican after almost a decade together as a band and hope to contribute more to the local music scene.
We love what we do and we believe in giving back through music. Apart from performing for corporate events, we are also actively involved in charity shows such as Relay For Life and Pink Ribbon Walk.
It is an honour to participate and perform for NKF Kidney We Care: Let's Revolutionise! (KWCLR) charity event this year. We would like to reach more people out there to raise awareness for kidney disease and raise funds for the needy kidney patients. Let's get together as one for a good cause and do our part to help our people!
Our performance will be streamed live on 6 March, from 5pm- 6pm, on KWCLR's event Instagram (@kwc.letsrevolutionise) and NKF's Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/NKFsg).

Kidney We Care: Let's Revolutionise! (KWCLR) is back! Happening from 28 February to 13 March 2022, KWCLR is a hybrid charity event helmed by volunteers and partners to urge the nation not to sugar coat the silent killer, kidney disease.
The event aims to continue to heighten community awareness about kidney disease and to bring forth a new wave of kidney health advocates. There will be virtual activities comprising a plethora of engaging workshops, insightful webinars and electrifying performances initiated by our volunteers and partners as well as outreach & fundraising booths to encourage members of the public to contribute and participate for a good cause. Through this event, we hope to raise $50,000 to provide subsidised treatment and holistic care for our patients.
The Covid-19 situation has brought about unprecedented challenges for both NKF and our patients. The disease has placed our patients at higher risk due to their weaker immune systems. Just as worrying, about 5.5 individuals are diagnosed with kidney failure every day and the number of new cases has increased by about 60% over the past 10 years. With NKF serving over 5,000 of them, the financial burden on NKF is a heavy one, as it costs over $25,000 a year to treat and care for a kidney patient. However, with you and the community's generous support, we are able to keep treatment affordable and available to all who need it.

About The Charity
The National Kidney Foundation (NKF) is currently supporting more than 5,300 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 76% 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.
