Our Campaign Story

ends 31 Mar 2021, 11:59 PM

We are a group of Singapore Polytechnic students with a passion for dancing. We are from the SP DanceSport Club (SPDS)!
Dancesport is a form of competitive ballroom dance that encompasses various partner and solo compositions. It is both a form of dance & sport and a great & fun way to keep fit and healthy! It is a form of self-expression via art. Here at SPDS, we primarily focus on Latin-American dances namely the Cha Cha, Rumba, Samba, Jive and Paso Doble.

In the month of March, we are partnering NKF to help raise funds to subsidise the cost of dialysis treatment for NKF patients. Check us out on our IG page, @dancesport.sp (https://www.instagram.com/dancesport.sp/), and find out how you can join us in our feat to support kidney failure patients. And as a pledge of our support to NKF, for a minimum sum of $4 donation made, we will be running an intimate, cosy session for you via exclusive Zoom sessions. All you have to do is to email your donation receipt to [email protected] along with your name and we will send you the Zoom link!
So what are you waiting for? Join us as we challenge our passiveness towards our kidney health and commit to taking charge of our own future. We guarantee you an experience unlike any other.

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.
