Our Campaign Story

ends 30 Nov 2021, 11:59 PM

When someone is diagnosed with kidney failure, it is not an easy journey for the patients and their families especially emotional and financially. On top of the expensive lifelong treatment, kidney patients also need to suffer the pain of needling during their dialysis treatment thrice weekly with each session lasting four hours.

Life is difficult for the poor and needy, and all the more miserable when they are sick or in pain especially during this pandemic. Your kind gift will enable NKF to continue their life saving mission and make a world of difference to their beneficiaries and families. Let's show our care and love to them now so that they can spend many more festive celebrations with their loved ones.

Thank you so much for your kindness.

About Campaign

"From the day of my amputation, l told myself not to give up. I refused to be singularly defined as a disabled person and let it become my whole identity. Many people thought a dialysis patient with disability like me cannot cope living alone, but I have proved them otherwise. I strongly believe with self-determination, I can live a fulfilling life like others.”

- Mr S. Shanmuganathan, 57, on dialysis for 6 years

Life threw Shanmuganathan a curveball in 2012 when his left leg had to be amputated due to diabetes. 3 years later, his kidneys failed and he needs dialysis to sustain his life. Despite all these, he is determined to carry on like any able-bodied person. He still does his own chores & cooking, and leads a fulfilling life by working and pursuing his hobbies.

Your support means a lot to patients like Shanmuganathan, giving them the strength to face the future with hope. Be the light of hope that shines on our patients' lives in this meaningful Festival of Lights!

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.
