Our Campaign Story

ends 31 Dec 2022, 11:59 PM

Did you know that there are patients in Singapore who decline dialysis due to financial difficulties? Furthermore, did you also know that kidney failure cases are rapidly rising, with about 6 patients diagnosed every day, more than 300,000 patients suffering from chronic kidney disease, and many more who are unaware of the condition?

SUTD Rotaract Club hopes that through the continuation of Project Renal, we can raise funds for patients with financial challenges who require dialysis. Be sure to rally your friends to support us in this meaningful fundraising effort!

Moreover, through our educational short videos (@a.healthcare.urop), we would like to share with you the many different and easy ways you can reduce the risks of chronic kidney disease.

Be sure to follow us on our Instagram page for more kidney health information and to download our FREE Kidney Care Telegram stickers to share with your friends and family!

About Campaign

"I drank a lot of iced lemon tea. Morning, afternoon, night. it's all I drink. Iced lemon tea is my favorite drink. Then I suffered from kidney failure. If I don't have dialysis, I think I will be a normal man. Don't need to go hospital, dialysis. Because dialysis is 5 hours. (I feel) tired." - Mr Md Sharif Md Yatim

Diabetes is the leading cause of kidney failure. About 6 people are diagnosed with kidney failure every day, and more than 300,000 suffer from chronic kidney disease, while many more remain unaware of their condition.

Kidney failure is irreversible. Patients have to depend on life-long, recurring dialysis 3 times a week, 4 hours each session in order to sustain their lives.

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.
