    did he have a choice? davinder cornered him like a hunted animal in the courtroom. better to cut his losses than to face more public humiliation.

    Bear in mind that the present state of awareness and donations is at the expends of telling the truth.
    The true state of how they approve and rejects a patiant.
    The true state of the no. of patients they have.
    The true state of how much they need a year ( not $60m but about $7m )
    etc...etc

    Yes, the NKF is doing a very good job. Every year there are 2000 patients less who might die if not for them. But they have also done a very good job spinning a sad, half true picture to pull at our heartstrings to get us to donate.

    I am not a singaporean nor am I staying in Singapore, so I have never donate to NKF.

    my only comment is that there are just too many charity shows each and every year in the TV, and all of the charity shows have turned into a gambling show. You dial the number, hoping to WIN a lottery. I am surprised how can Singapore government allow this to happen...but on the other hand, they are building two casinos...

    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.
    Don't worry, if they cease donation drives totally, their reserves can last 30 yrs...maybe 40 yrs w/o paying for CEO's salary

    Any1 organising donation drives to pay direct to kidney patients? I will support, on condition that 100% must go to the needy.

    Correction.. They only spent $7.2 million of $31.6 million, and they claimed they need $62.4 million per year.

    http://straitstimes.asia1.com.sg/fre...28263,00.html?

    "According to its 2003 audited financial statement, it spent $31.6 million that year on dialysis and transplantation. Of that amount, $22.9 million came from dialysis fees it collected from patients and a further $1.5 million came from other related income.

    So NKF was out of pocket by only $7.2 million, noted Mr Davinder Singh, who was acting for SPH."

    Recruit all the elites and top brains, pay them millions of dollars.

    Maybe the elites and top brains are not elite and 'top' enough. Maybe the millions are not million enough.

    As in this world we are leaving, only people can help people. So don't abuse our kind hearted donations & our hard earned money. Bare that in mind, all you blood sucking assh--es out there!!
