THE NATIONAL KIDNEY FOUNDATION JOINS FORCES WITH SHOPEE
JUNE 10, 2020 @ 1.23PM
The National Kidney Foundation (NKF) has recently joined forces with Shopee to raise funds for NKF's underprivileged kidney failure patients. The collaboration between the non-governmental organization to offer haemodialysis treatment and the e-commerce platform will enable Shopee users to donate to NKF and support the fundraising effort.
Malaysians can now click on ShopeePay in their Shopee app, scan the QR code on NKF's website and donate their preferred amount − with all proceeds donated directly to NKF Mala
Subsidised dialysis treatments
“Haemodialysis patients require trained staff to deliver a four-hour treatment, three times a week for the rest of their lives − and this can be quite costly. NKF is doing its best to provide subsidised dialysis treatments for the 1,712 patients at our 27 dialysis centres nationwide. So, it is crucial for patients to have access to affordable dialysis treatment – especially those who are generally from the lower income group,” said Dato' Dr Zaki Morad Mohamad Zaher, chairman of NKF Malaysia.
“On behalf of NKF, we truly appreciate the support and generosity of Shopee and its users − especially during this challenging period. Every donation counts and we will ensure that the donations made towards NKF will be used prudently in aid of our patient’s wellbeing.” he added.
Ian Ho, regional managing director of Shopee said, "This partnership displays the transformative power of our technology as we use it to change the world for the better by providing a straightforward platform for the rakyat to offer a helping hand to those in need. We are confident that our work with NKF will result in meaningful, positive and sustainable changes for the greater good of the community."
