Due to other health implications, Tong Seng totally lost his ability to travel out of his house even with the help of clutches and his prosthetic leg. He used to enjoy brisk walking, clocking up to 5km each day. Now, he can only depend on a wheelchair to move around.
Close to 40% of our patients require mobility assistance in order to continue their dialysis treatments.
Help patients like Tong Seng with their transportation subsidies
"Even a short walk is a challenge to me now. There is no way I can get to the dialysis centre without the ambulance service."
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.
