To Mohd Faizal bin Kamaruddin, a single father who was diagnosed with kidney failure 4 years ago, raising his daughter to become a strong and independent lady is his motivation in life. When Faizal was first diagnosed, he was neither dejected nor disheartened; his immediate concern was instead about how he could support his mother and daughter and allow them to continue leading a life without worries. Shouldering the responsibilities as a double parent, he spent all his time juggling work and taking care of his family. Faizal's unconditional love for his daughter as she grew up is like an anchor that keeps her grounded, spurring her on as she achieves her dreams of becoming a medical student.
"With NKF's support in terms of access to dialysis and conducting of regular activities to engage patients, I don't feel lonely in this journey. I am immensely grateful to all of the kind-hearted people who have supported patients like me, allowing me to fulfil my duty as a father and son and spend time together with my daughter. There are many patients like me out there and I hope that you can help out if you have the means to do so, giving them a chance to continue fighting their battle and living life as much as they can."
- Mohd Faizal bin Kamaruddin
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.
