History of the Kidney Dialysis Foundation
Dr. Gordon Ku established the Kidney Dialysis Foundation in the year 1996 with the help of Singapore's Ministry of Health to offer dialysis to the financially underprivileged kidney patients in Singapore. The Kidney Dialysis Foundation was started with the primary aim of offering high-quality dialysis treatment at a subsidized charge to the less privileged community in Singapore. It was set-up keeping in consideration the interests of the lower-income groups in Singapore.
The mission of the Kidney Dialysis Foundation is to take care that the poor patients don't succumb to death for lack of adequate treatment. The treatment-charge at the Kidney Dialysis Foundation is much less compared to the real cost of dialysis treatment in other clinics and hospitals. Majority of the patients in the Kidney Dialysis Foundation are charged only $600 for a month whereas the same treatment at the other clinics comes for more than $2000 a month. Doctors working in the government hospitals in Singapore always refer the needy and poor patients to the Kidney Dialysis Foundation.
The doctors also refer the patients belonging to the lower-income-group such as store-helpers, cleaners, hawkers, assistants and cab-drivers to this organization.
