Mdm Zailehar Hassan undergoes dialysis 3 times a week, 4 hours each time, for the rest of her life. When she first started dialysis, she lost her appetite and gradually grew weak due to the lack of protein in her body, which was lost during dialysis.
Most kidney patients like Mdm Zailehar have difficulty in chewing or simply cannot afford the additional cost of consuming a more protein-rich diet with adequate nutrients.
It costs more than $10,000 each month to support these needy and malnourished patients.
But there is HOPE. All it takes is $10, which will go a long way in helping a malnourished patient with 1 week's supply of nutritional supplements. Your generous donation and support will help improve the patients quality of life.
Start today. Be the voice. Transform lives.
Rally your family and friends to create a positive impact in our community!
Every dollar you donate will go entirely to our patient care. You will enjoy a tax-deduction of 2.5 times the value of your donation.
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.
