This year, NKF celebrates 50 years of supporting and caring for kidney patients and their families. Since the Foundation’s inauguration on 7 April 1969, more than 10,000 kidney patients’ lives have been saved and immeasurable difference made to their families’ lives.
All our work will not be possible without the support of caring people like you. As we celebrate the 50th year of our existence, we will continue to work closely with the Ministry of Health, restructured hospitals, healthcare agencies and the community to help kidney patients and benefit people through preventive healthcare education.
Thank you again for your strong support and partnership. Together, let us continue to give Life and Hope.
Our commemorative book which showcases NKF’s 50-year journey was launched at the event. ‘50 Years Together’ features stories and reflections written by patients, caregivers, NKF staff and other stakeholders, as well as portraits of each writer created by students from the School of the Arts.
