Over 280 volunteers from corporations, educational institutions, religious groups and individuals came together to celebrate NKF’s Volunteer Appreciation Day (VAD) on 18 October 2014. The theme for the event was “I’ll Stand by You” to acknowledge our volunteers’ efforts of standing by our patients with their support and contributions through our Circle of Hearts volunteer programme. A photo gallery showcased significant moments of the programme since its inception in 2007.
Writing their thoughts for the future on pledge cards, volunteers pledged to a more enriching volunteering experience for the future. “Project Aid” was also launched during the event to provide basic necessities to 300 needy patients in the form of a hamper at the dialysis centres. The items were generously sponsored by LeonGold Trading Co Pte Ltd and Singapore Buddhist Youth Mission. NKF greatly values the commitment and efforts volunteers have given to our patients to help them in their journey towards rehabilitation.
