Lions Club of Singapore Nassim’s (LCS Nassim) introduction to the Kidney Dialysis Foundation (KDF) was through Mr Lye Yuen Chew, its Project Chairman. In 2015, Mr Lye first learnt of KDF through a flyer he received through the post. He felt strongly for KDF’s mission. Following which, he introduced KDF to LCS Nassim.
In 2019, LCS Nassim members visited the San Wang Wu Ti – KDF Centre at Kreta Ayer, handed out goodie bags, and performed for the patients. Mr Lye himself even performed a short magic show, to the delight of everyone present at the dialysis centre.
In 2020, due to COVID-19 safe management measures, LCS Nassim had to suspend their outreach efforts. However, this did not stop the club from raising funds for KDF. The members donated and also reached out to their personal networks. LCS Nassim raised a total of $104,600 to donate 4 dialysis machines to KDF.
“We are very happy to support KDF in these challenging times with our gift. Lions Club of Singapore Nassim was chartered in Singapore with the goal of giving back to the local community, and we hope that this ground-up initiative will help uplift the lives of underprivileged end-stage kidney patients at KDF. I would like to thank all LCS Nassim members* and friends who have made this fundraising effort a success.”
