    I am one of those who opted for "not sure now" - I would like to see how they are going to "change" things before i come to a decision.

    Let's not talk about the salary for now as can be part of his contract and accorded to him by the board (blame the board if needed) But getting himself a $1,000 tap and travelling first class is quite shocking revelation. how come donations can be used so loosely? I think this is a loss of trust. Wonder what else Mr Durai has spent on

    now its 4, may be they feel that by stopping their donation, it is the sick who suffer more.

    the ceo hard gotten so fat it will last him for a very long time, even if you stop your donation. dont forget, the fund can last for another 40 years without new donation coming in.

    I have stopped donating to them. Disgusting behaviour using public money for extravagences when the poor really need the money!

    Exclamation Buy Davinder Singh a beer donation drive

    I am thinking of organising a donation drive to thank Davinder Singh for his effort in the NKF vs SPH case.

    Now make no mistake about it: I am quite sure the guy makes more money than most of us working stiffs, is being paid by SPH for his work in this case, but for providing all of us such good entertainment, and in the name of service to at least 2 out 3 Singaporeans, I say he deserves a carton of beer!

    If you want to contribute to this fund, just let me know. I think if we have excess money we can also make a "Thank You" plaque.

    I am still donating $30/mth, but after hearing yesterday's news now I am really having second thoughts. Really felt sad for the patients. So how do I terminate my monthly contribution ? Call them ?

    Question

    after all these revelations in court, shouldn't NKF be fully audited and the results made public?

    Anyone have any idea what the rules for charities are?

    Their reserves can last for decades..and what they seem to be doing is riding on the coattails of public sympathy and softheartedness for images of suffering patients..

    well, in couple more years, I might even vote him to be next President. Then he can start asking questions about Singapore reserves.

    End of the day, U noticed him riding a motorbike home(not to mention driving a Merc).
    How do u feel?
