    Yes, they might misuse or abuse the fund. But after all we donate to those who needs not to whatever CEO or blah blah......if they really did, let the authorities deal with them.

    Imagine, if all of you haf cancel or wun donate anymore in the future becos of these irresponsible? What happen to those needy? They will suffer not those CEO.

    You can choose to donate to Kidney Dialysis Foundation, which has shown to make much better use of donations.

    And that is why, my friends and I donate directly. Never to such organisations like NKF and CC.

    And often not in monetary terms. Ask what they need. Wheelchairs? OK, we buy you wheel chairs. Something like that.

    Let's not get too emotional about this.

    I do acknowledge that NKF as a organisation has done much for the Kidney foundation and its needs. I still donate to NKF for the needy. I do not donate for the prizes.

    However, charitable organisations needs to be more transparant in how its funds are being utilised. Perhaps, we need legisation to govern this, just as listed companies.

    As to the CEO, let the mgt board decides.

    Its a pity that the case has ceased to be mentioned. It will be interesting to see its development.

    The same tale with lining up 10 men and telling the first a short story. By the time the last men hears from the 9th men in line. The story is distorted beyond original meaning already.


    Meanwhile.

    I am not rich nor i am a saint. But i always try to help withing my reach. Even a cent is more than enough that where thoughts count.

    Btw, i will donate your "camera fund" only when u are one of them. It not a joke abt cancer paitient. Have u seen one? And taking care of one? Get a life my friend!

    And i always believe in KARMA.
    thanks to this case, we all are reminded that we have a choice.

    for every dollar we donate to NKF, we now know that 45 cents of that dollar goes towards paying for the upkeep of durai's family car, 1st class travel, gold taps, and 12 month bonus, among other things.

    for every dollar we donate to KDF, we know that 85 cents of that dollar actually goes to the kidney patients.

    we have a choice. it's up to us to use it wisely.

    By the way, who is the lawyer that represent NKF/CEO?
    Ya, Davinder Singh is very good, I believe he did all his homework beforehand, and debated excellently.

    The CEO of NKF himself have agreed that what was stated in the papers is true. They were the one who bought the case to court. Now they are the one who withdrew the case. Yet the patron of the NKF, who is the wife of our Senior Minister, says that the retraction is valid and what the papers stated is not true. Till date she still have complete faith in the NKF and Mr Durai. IMO that says alot about her own judgement when it comes to right and wrong.
