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.

    Ya, Davinder Singh is very good, I believe he did all his homework beforehand, and debated excellently.
    Michael Khoo (Senior Counsel) represented NKF/CEO.

    of course, removal doesn't necessary mean solving all problems....

    i would think the alternative solution is, make NKF board of trustees more accountable...publish their accounts with more disclosure...implement guideline as to the way they approve expenditure and payments...

    i don't see why NKF should not follow Temasek's footstep...

    why is this so? is it becos the rest can't afford to pay the $850 to NKF to further enhance their $262 million reserves, and are therefore asked to "go and die"?

    Sounds like changes are needed to safeguard the money from being abused in charity organisations - sad fact is the guys playing as a true blue charity will get hit with the cost of these safeguards.

    You know the ones that pay peanuts and have staff that work that because they believe in the cause. The ones where to repair a worn out washers in their taps hurt because the coffers are some what bear of cash. The ones that end up with 90 or 100% of the cost of treatment for some the people under their care. The ones that do not know how to do high power fund raising.

    If any one want to support kidney patients I think KDF is a more worthy cause. It still more focused on client care and less on fund raising.

    And don't forget these patients pay on average 2/3 of the treatment costs.

For organisation like NKF, their FIRST priority is not the patients. Isn't it so evident to us now?
    another sin committed by NKF - trying to play god and decide who to live and who to die....in the first place, NKF has S$223m in reserve....so, what is the rationale of the above comments??.....

    and yet the CEO admitted that they were using the tactic to cry foul of their reserve won't last 3 years to drive for more donation....really, this is the most scandalous act in probably the history of Singapore....

    I'm just wondering? Is our CPF also for investment? Think if you have a certain amount of CPF right now till the day you retire, how much will you get? And, if you put this $$ into investment from now till you retire, how much will you get?

    yep....the hypocrisy is hideous. an organisation that is rich beyond belief, refusing to save some lives, while gladly paying for a luxurious lifestyle for its CEO, all using public donations.
