The COVID-19 situation has brought about unprecedented challenges for both NKF and our patients, who have a higher risk of getting COVID-19 infections due to their weaker immune systems.
Kidney failure, dialysis treatments, and patients' psychosocial conditions can lead to decreased appetite, loss of nutrients and inadequate protein/energy intake. This causes patients to be at a higher risk of malnourishment and this takes a toll on their health. To replenish the nutrients and help them regain health, NKF's clinical team (doctors, nurses and dietitians) works closely with patients to provide individualised intervention, which includes providing nutritional tips and advice so that they can take positive steps towards eating better and improve their quality of life. Vulnerable malnourished patients are also prescribed with high energy and/or high protein oral nutritional supplements to help them achieve their nutritional needs to improve their immunity, and reduce infections, hospitalisation frequency, and the risk of falls and death.
This Ramadan, we are seeking your support to help our kidney patients, like Mdm Norhaini, get the nutritional supplements that they need.
Wishing you and your loved ones good health and many blessings!
Selamat Menyambut Bulan Ramadan!
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.
