People who suffer from arthritis find that it affects their everyday activities, their jobs, their financial resources, or their relationships with family and friends.

Many need help to cope with Arthritis so that they can live normal meaningful lives, but treatment costs can be very substantial. For example, Biologics Agents are effective in treating rheumatoid arthritis patients, but they can cost over $30,000 per year, making such treatments unattainable for many. As the financial help provided by Government's Medisave, Medifund and other schemes may not be sufficient to cover these costs, NAF provides financial support to help needy patients defray these costs.

Other than medical subsidies, NAF organises exercise classes and public/patient educational events to empower arthritis sufferers, and those who wish to better manage joint pains, with the knowledge to live healthy lifestyles.

Your giving will go a long way to improve the quality of life for Arthritis patients as well as to run our programmes. We appreciate your contributions; remember that even an humble gesture done with a big heart will always make a huge impact on someone's life.

Together, let's fight Arthritis.
