    http://www.nkfs.org/finance%20data.htm
    http://www.kdf.org.sg/financial.htm

    Collections from donations + grant + sponsorships
    NKF - 67,365,000
    KDF - 4,675,527

    Direct charitable expenses
    NKF - 36,191,000 (54% of collections)
    KDF - 3,818,448 (82% of collections)

    Employee costs
    NKF - 27,125,000 (40% of collections)
    KDF - 572,696 (12% of collections)

    Av mthly cost per employee
    NKF - 2,270 (996 employees)
    KDF - 2,390 (20 employees)

    Up to you guys to make sense out of these...
    KDF should takeover NKF immediately, kick out the dead wood, and deliver more bang for buck for all donors and patients.

    $600K to lead the US is dirt cheap. the US president should be paid at least $6 million.
    Well, we are talking about annual income from the main company they are working in. For being the Chairman of the largest software company in the work, the most valued company on Fortune 500, he receives only that amount of annual salary.

    Since he owns the company... I guess he can decide what he wants... getting "smaller" salary and pushing the rest of the profit for R&D will just make sure he will continue to earn more. Anyway... it still boils down to the word "charity". Comparison with other corporations is not entirely fair. The "profit " earned mislead the "customers" of the "product" they were selling. Its like someone sold you a Nikon DX2 but inside got BenQ parts with recycled Cold Storage plastic bags for the lens... miraculously it gives you exactly the same quality as Nikon but if you found out what were the raw materials are made of... wouldn't you be upset?

    the honourable thing for durai to do now is resign his position. he has brought too much shame upon NKF.

    Better wait n see first... what id Durai is just the tip of the ice berg... someone has to approve of the salary... and these someones must also earn so much... if Durai is removed... it will seem like a payoff and a scapegoat... the practice will change actors but story remains the same...
