    SPH newspaper are more absorbent and strait times are extra large size... suitable for all kinds of crap. But worst comes to worst... he can hire any of CS member. We are highly experienced in PSing any crap big n small. Okay... gotta sleep now. Don't wanna dream crappy dreams.

    Yes, I believe a lot of the money goes to helping patients in need.

    It appears that there are concerns which needs addressing, by the public's reckoning, but I wonder ... just how 'needy' does a patient need to be before receiving help, and to what degree?

    Much has been said about the middle-income groups and plights in different public and private discussions ...

    An opinion, it may be much better off being really poor, or really rich.

    Dr. Seamus should have been braver in standing by what he said, which is the TRUTH. Justice has been done... NKF caught with their pants down.

    Thank God.
    But I don't like the way that he's says he feels justified that retribution has been meted. The truly good do not do this.

    So, common sense tell you that some other big shots in Singapore are also involved in this too! Don't you think so?

    Agreed on the squeeze on the middle class.

    Went to the NKF website. Notice that it is clear from it how are the subsidies structured based on one's salary. Instead, the whole website appears to be targeting donars with all the info on what NFK does,...etc. It should definitely focus more on its true "clients", which are the patients and not the donors

    NKF will survive even if we all stop donations for many years. I stopped donations to NKF years ago, based on the information I was getting from people, and later on the Straits Times article in question.

    I found the comments made by the NKF patron in today's Straits Times extremely disturbing:

    Her Comments on Mr Durai's salary.
    "For a person who runs a multi-million dollar charity organisation, $600,000 is peanuts as it has a few hundred millions in reserves"


    Her comments on NKF's lack of transparency and deliberate misleading of the public.
    "Why make a fuss out of it"


    No corruption in Singapore? In any other company the CEO will probably be looking at jailtime for fraud!

    everyone needs to be paid (salary), but to justify their salary?

    according to fellow cser, admin position in NKF gets bonus every 3 month, is that justifiable?

    as the saying goes, upper level not striaght, lower level also bend.

    of cause they have to pay them bonus every 3 month to make them happy so they will not spill the beans. which company in the market pays this well, not to mention pass 3-5 years economics has been bad.

    I think they should do something to appease the public that felt they were shortchanged on thier kindness by donating. If this happened in other countries, I believe there would be demostrations already. Lucky SG is more civilised and cultivated not to voice opinions in public except forums..

One can already see that the funds are being misspent just from looking at the size of the letters they send asking for $$.

    Perhaps the courts should ask Durai how much is spent on postage and printing costs alone in a year.
    Same goes for me. I have stopped donating to NKF years back after initially donating and then receiving fanciful mails soliciting for donations. I would rather give to the other charities.

    Are you doing through GIRO? if so can call your bank to cancel and stop the donations.
