    I was told that quite a number of staff were "handpicked" the CEO.

    One of the ways a "leader" secures his position is to surround himself with loyal staff.

    I saw your donation as the 1st price in newspaper. If you want it back, must send SMS first and hope for the best. Good luck!

    forget it lah... what you donated in the past just let it be lah.

    what is the point of tracing it back? just donate to KDF and other charities for now till NKF clean up their act.

    Before I start, I must first admit that I have not gone past more than 10 pages of this post so I will first apologise if I inadvertantly parrot anyone

    I believe that alot of people are up in arms on this issue because NKF is a charity organisation and not a business one and that the money 'earned' is not exactly earned, but donated.
    I feel the need to put this in perspective. All things being equal and with all charity organisations in singapore not actively promoting their organisation, would they all 'earn' equally.
    I am sure that most are in agreement that they more or less would. If this is the case, then we would be hard pressed to find a reason why NKF is getting the lions share of the donation pie, other than that it is doing something more to attract these donation (which actually means that they are earning it). In that case, it wouldn't be far fetched to say that the NKF business model is in fact a success and that there is as little to fault the management of this organisation as there is with any other successful business organisation, including the disbersment of monies to its employees.
    So how NKF calculates its staff pay or bonuses should be their own decision (we can only hope that they do it with a sense of moral integrity), as with the case of how our cabinet and prime ministers' pay are calculated, since there is no tangible way to calculate profits in these cases.

    If say, one day, NKF BOD is suddently imbued with a conscience and decides to issue a company directive that all staff would be paid an allowance rather than a salary that is deemed acceptable for a charity organisation. Would our reaction be that of outrage when we read of mass resignation or would we read with empathy?
    The sad truth is that the people who donated to this organisation are as much to blame. We have become so busy that the only time we donate is when we are approached or when it is convenient or, sadly, when there is something to gain eg. car/condo.
    At the end of the day, I guess we should accept the way this organisation is run if we continue to support it or we should just sponsor other organisation and let things take its natural course, much like any loss making company. Of course, if there is no other organisation able to absorb the work of NKF, then the ones who ultimately suffer will be the benificiaries.
    well. . . . .just a thought.

    His apology shall come in the form of a full front page apology complete with pictures of him tendering his resignation, a picture of him kneeing on the floor and giving a deep sincere bow and the text of his resignation letter printed.

    2nd and 3rd page shall contain NKF's full financial statements, including pay, benefits of all Directors, Chairman and Appointment Holders in NKF.

    4th page shall come in the form of a pictorial essay, of how Durai's office looks like, the gold tap and German Toilet bowl. Plus copies of the original contractor invoice, order, contract of installation.

    5th and 6th page shall show the future roadmap of NKF, all the plans they intend to do and all past, current and future restructuring plans. Any resignation or restructuring from the Board of Directors is welcomed.

    7th page shall show public reaction and suggestions to the reports laid out in full.

    8th page shall contain a personal interview with the NKF Patron and government amended laws.

    9th page shall show a namelist of all paitents. How many of them were accepted, how many rejected, how many kicked out of the dialysis programme cos they ran outta moola.

    10th page shall be Thank You notices to SPH, Law Firms and all those involved who provided any form of information.

    Yes. With this sort of apology, I guess everyone will forgive NKF.
