She is not just any youth. She is one with the heart and skills for volunteering. Twenty-year-old Cristabel Yeo has been volunteering with NKF since 2021. Under Cristabel’s management, the Kidney We Care; Let’s Revolutionise (KWCLR) IG page achieved an impressive engagement number that was over 250,000 during the annual event held in March this year. Not only did Cristabel plan and execute marketing strategies during the event period, she also created most of the content on the page. Despite her being very much behind the scenes, she is passionate about harnessing the power of social media to advocate the importance of kidney health to fellow youths in the community.
What started as an interest in social media management and content creation for Cristabel then, ended as a deepening love for giving back to the renal community with the skills she possesses.
“Learning about NKF’s support for kidney patients has motivated me to be more active and provide support in any way I can,” said Cristabel.
“I continue volunteering with NKF because of the opportunities given – such as the platform and creative freedom to help raise awareness for a meaningful cause.”
“As I found out more about NKF’s role in the community and society, I found greater purpose in being part of the KWCLR movement to raise awareness about kidney health. Volunteering with NKF has broadened my horizon; I’ve learnt how important health is, especially our lifestyle and diet.”
