$50 can fund 1 month of EPO medication to help anaemic patients.
$150 can fund 1 dialysis session. Will you consider giving a little more?
$200 can buy 11 dialysers (artificial kidneys), a key component of dialysis.
$2,000 is how much dialysis would cost monthly without any subsidies.
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.
(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.
