Beneficiary (2) – National Kidney Foundation Malaysia
NKF is a non-profit charity organisation, thus fundraising is an important component to raise the standards of care to provide patients with kidney failure and those who are suffering from various kidney-related diseases and those who cannot afford the expensive treatment of dialysis care
NKF aims to raise public education to prevent kidney disease and to provide affordable health care for kidney patients nationwide and become a one-stop national resource center for all kidney related matters
- To provide knowledge about kidney disease prevention and health checks through the public education for early detection and able to control of the disease. Meanwhile, it has to provide the information for the dialysis patients who suffered kidney failure and make a new beginning of their lives
- Efforts to promote organ donation, kidney transplant and research about kidney disease
- Through the comprehensive care of a treatment programme to help patients to learn how to adjust their lifestyle after the dialysis and hence to achieve good recover results
Currently, NKF has more than 1500 kidney failure patients in 26 dialysis centers nationwide who receive dialysis care allowance aid treatment. By 2016, NKF will face a problem with an estimated RM14.5 million cost overrun. In order to continue providing the assistance and subsidies for kidney disease patients and ensure smooth programme progression, therefore NKF needs to seek more sponsors for donations.
For each kidney disease patient, they need to undergo kidney dialysis three times in a week (or 13 times per month) which lasts for 4 hours per dialysis treatment and the cost is around RM250 in private care centers (total RM40000 in year). Therefore, it could become a long term financial burden for these kidney failure patients who come from low income families. They have to worry as to whether their money should be spent on dialysis treatment or basic daily expenses. For this reason, NKF needs more public support to aid the kidney failure patients who need help.
