Our Campaign Story

ends 31 Mar 2021, 11:59 PM

We are a group of Madrasah Aljunied Al-Islamiah students led by a teacher. Most of us are in the
International Baccalaureate Diploma programme (IBDP) and are committed to doing our part for the
community. This March, we have chosen to partner NKF to help raise awareness of kidney failure.
For the first time ever, we will be putting up a traditional kompang performance to raise funds to
help alleviate the financial burden of NKF's patients. We are all new to this medium of performance
and hope that our drumming will help bring some delight to your day. Check us out on our Instagram
page, @kwclr.maa (https://www.instagram.com/kwclr.maa/). Support us when we
stream our performances on 20 and 27 March, from 10am to 11am, on Health Diet Band YouTube
Channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCBuTVJ2WwiNNpjlwvW5WAKw) and @

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.
