About Campaignends 31 Dec 2021, 11:59 PM
Tong Seng lost his left leg in 2003 due to diabetes, was diagnosed with diabetes-induced kidney failure in 2006 and has had to undergo multiple surgeries to remove benign tumours and cysts in his stomach and intestines. 4 years ago, he lost his right leg and is now dependent on a wheelchair to get him to places. In spite of all the intense pain and dashed hopes, he is determined to stay strong and not let life tear him down. His biggest wish is to be a filial son to care for his elderly mother who is suffering from dementia, for as long as his health permits.
His story mirrors the predicament of many of our patients. They have very little spirit left in them when they come to us. We have to save them from taking the easy way out of giving up on life.
Many patients like Tong Seng need you to give them the strength and encouragement to live on with determination and hope. Your support for our patients is most crucial now, especially during these uncertain economic times.
We look forward to your kind support. Thank you!
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.
