Our Campaign Story
It started as a passion project for three young musicians, one home studio and hundreds of songs waiting to be played. With a recent addition of a passionate 16-year-old vocalist, the band is now complete, known today as District 22.
Welcome a new district in town, District 22! Join us in doing our bit for the community, especially during these trying times, to support kidney failure patients through raising awareness and funds via Kidney We Care: Let's Revolutionise!

We will also be online on District 22 Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/District22band) on 21 March 2021, Sunday, 2.00pm to 3.00pm to put up a jamming session for you. So what are you waiting for? Donate generously, come meet and interact with our young musicians on our Facebook page on 21 March!
Together, let's Rethink Kidney Failure and Rethink Life!

About Campaign

Kidney failure is on the rise. In Singapore, every day, there are 5.5 new patients down with kidney failure and require dialysis or transplant to survive. The number of Singaporeans diagnosed with the illness has jumped by more than 50% from 1,275 (2009) to 1,999 (2017). NKF admitted an annual average of 855 new dialysis patients in the past 5 years and the disease burden to treat kidney failure amounted to $116 million the last financial year.

Covid-19 has posed many new and tough challenges for NKF and our patients. The disease has placed our patients at higher risk due to their weaker immune systems. We remain committed to ensuring that affordable dialysis continues to be made available to kidney failure patients with the best support and care possible.

For the first time, NKF is organising a volunteer-helmed virtual charity event, Kidney We Care: Let's Revolutionise! that will be happening from 1 March to 31 March 2021. The event aims to heighten community awareness about kidney disease and bring forth a new era of volunteerism and a new wave of kidney health advocates. Virtual booths comprising activities, workshops and performances initiated by our volunteers will be set up on NKF website. Through this event, we hope to raise $100,000, which will go towards providing quality treatment and holistic care for our patients.

Your kind donation will Give Life and Hope to our patients!

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.
