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 !

    Yup.. Totally agreed with Razor.

    If by boycotting NKF and not donating to the patients, you are deprieving them of their treatment. At least under NKF, they still get partial funding.

    Sorry you can't. Because the system have already logged your contribution and they wouldn't cancel for you without a valid reason. Reason given by NKF to my wife whom mistakeningly called the 7 calls number and ended up have to pay $150+ for her mistake and an unaccounted for call on an early morning 2 days after the program.

    We are so pissed that we cancel all giro deduction the very day.

    Shd not be.. It's a voluntary service but of course, if they attend meetings/events on behalf of NKF etc, the expenses will be paid by NKF.

    The more I read about how kidney patients are rejected by NKF because of some stupid rules. I get Disgusted. The more I read about patients have to foot $34 million for dialysis while NKF gives only $7 million I feel more DISGUSTED!
    PUI!

    I feel that NKF's CEO should get his bonus and whatever perks that is promised to him. When he took a job in NKF, it's just another job. With his abilities, i am sure he can find a job whereby he gets more money, fame as well as benefits than what he is getting in NKF. Not that i am bashing any other organizations, but I have to admit that NKF is the better known charities in Singapore. I am sure we can put any CEO who are willing to get peanuts or even no pay for the job, but the question is would they do as good a job as him? Personally, looking at most of the "non-profit-depending-on-the-public" organizations, i don't think so.

    u see, as long as it is public money, we should know how transparent they are.

    as for churches, temples, etc...it is their members who should be concern, n if im not a member, its none of my business.

    Well, if he is willing to take the money while those he is supposed to help suffers, I hope he sleeps well.

    As for doing a good job, I can hardly think he can do any worse now.
