    You are responsible for your own life. Thats why people buy insurance, exercise, eat well and quit smoking etc.
    dude your Englandish is very powerful and you are so good in giving people advice. Hence, I make peace with you.

    btw fund and foundation are 2 different words.

    what will the lay person think and feel about it? her tone and all? what if this never took place, all Singaporeans will never get to know the truth?

    anyway, i feel that transparency is vital for any charitable organisation. from what i see, NKF shot themselves this time round.

    be thankful that its only graffiti-art on their walls. that's about all most Singaporeans can do.
    Hah...ha...ha...ha.... Never more than agree

    The real losers in this incident are the patients who need the subsidised treatment. The public donations may drop but the salarymen will continue to get their pay cheques. Will NKF use or not use public money to pay for the costs of the lawsuits? I hope the NKF Board of directors will come out to clarify. Let there be greater transparency and accountability in future. It is an honest mistake worth learning from. Let us all sought to forgive and forget NKF and move on for the sake of the patients it set out to help.

    Do not let in-fighting to doom us. Peace !

    Very resourceful dude. But the final end is that 'this will never happen'.
    Just like my previous company. All related documents regarding how the company runs & funds by the investers are all destroyed even before someone can come & check on it.

    I think she have her fare share not less than S$80-90k per month? Or even more than a million?

    i thought it was reported all expenditures are from public/donor's money. So this case is NKF and their CEO sued SPH, even if CEO is paying it from his own pocket, what about NKF??? obviously also from public/donor

    Default Donate to the Kidney patients. Thru other channels if you are upset over the NKF.

    Remember guys, despite the relevations, there are still 2000 over people that needs your help.

    There are always alternative channels.
