Mdm Lim Swee Yim, 63, and her husband Mr Wong Pak Chiu, 68, have been happily married for over 30 years. Mdm Lim was diagnosed with hypertension-induced kidney failure in 2010 after a bout of bad nausea and breathing difficulties which changed their forever. Just a year after being diagnosed with kidney failure, Mdm Lim was hit with more bad news - she was found to have stage 1 breast cancer. It shattered the couple's hopes for a kidney transplant. Mdm Lim's challenges did not end there. In 2019, she had to wrestle with significant anxiety and insomnia issues thought to be caused by poorly controlled hypertension.

It was with this stoic support from her husband that Mdm Lim has never felt like giving up, even at the lowest point of her life. She knew that as long as he is by her side, and with the support of many caring friends like you in the community, they can weather any storm together.

Support us this Lunar New Year and help spread cheer and warmth to our patients!

Your generosity will give patients like Mdm Lim the strength to face their future with hope and make an immeasurable difference in their and their families' lives!

A Happy Lunar New Year to all who are celebrating and may the Year of the Tiger bring you joy, hope and happiness!

*This charity drive is one of the initiatives under Seasons of Love.

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.
