On the 17th of November 2018, KDF hosted a volunteer appreciation luncheon in honour of those who have generously given their time in service of KDF and our patients. It is our humble way of thanking all our volunteers for their service and unwavering support towards our cause over the years.
Volunteerism is the heart of giving back but it is never easy to find time between our busy schedules, academic pressure and personal commitments to be in regular service of others. Which is why it is most heartening to have volunteer groups like Anglo-Chinese School (Independent) Interact Club and UCares come regularly to our dialysis centres to visit and accompany our patients.
Equally important and valued are volunteers who have contributed and supported us in one way or another throughout the year, like our event volunteers, skills-based volunteers and community and school partners who help with recruitment.
To thank and honour these amazing individuals and organisations, our board director, Mr Chan Soo Sen, presented them with a certificate of appreciation during the luncheon following a heart-warming video of our patients expressing their gratitude. Volunteers were also given a small yet meaningful gift – Pots of Gratitude, a mini-potted plant filled with seeds planted by our patients.
Our heartfelt thanks to our current and past volunteers for your dedication, time and service over the years. Thank you!
