About Us

The Kidney Dialysis Foundation (KDF) is an independent non-profit organisation which provides subsidised dialysis treatment to needy members of the community.

We support those whose income falls into the lowest 10% income bracket in Singapore, ensuring that this vulnerable group of patients will not be deprived of treatment as a result of their financial situation.

We currently run three haemodialysis centres (at Bishan, Chinatown, Ghim Moh) and one peritoneal dialysis centre, serving about 340 patients annually. At least $4 million is needed yearly to continue KDF's life-saving mission.

All donations to KDF will be eligible for tax deduction as we are a IPC registered charity.

Our Programmes

(1) Treatment
Subsidised Dialysis
Subsidised Medication
Portable Subsidy (for high dependency patients)
Adopt-A-Patient (second tier funding for a select group of patients)

(2) Education & Social Support for Patients
Patient orientation (for new patients)
Periodic dialysis reviews
Dietetic counselling
Patient education seminar (twice a year)
Patient outing (twice a year)

Our main focus is on providing subsidised dialysis treatment and medication to needy patients. About 80% of our annual spending is used for this purpose.

Patient out-of-pocket fees are calculated based on what they can afford and based on their household income. For those unable to afford their portion of the co-payment after KDF subsidy, they are placed under the Adopt-A-Patient Programme, where their payment is further subsidised. In some case, patients need not pay a single cent.
