National Kidney Foundation (NKF) of Malaysia is collaborating with Touch ‘n Go eWallet to launch a fundraising effort for NKF’s underprivileged kidney failure patients. This collaboration will allow Touch ‘n Go eWallet users to contribute towards NKF’S cause by just scanning the QR code on NKF’s website and donate their preferred amount − with all proceeds donated directly to NKF Malaysia.
“It is essential for dialysis patients to come for dialysis treatment 3 times a week to survive. Every year, NKF needs to raise RM26.5 million to subsidise the cost of dialysis treatments for the 1,712 patients at our 27 dialysis centres nationwide. The majority of NKF’s patients are generally from the lower income group, who cannot afford the higher cost at private medical facilities. So, it is crucial they have access to affordable dialysis treatment,” said Dato’ Dr Zaki Morad Mohamad Zaher, Chairman of NKF Malaysia.
Touch ‘n Go eWallet users in Malaysia who are interested in contributing towards the organisation’s efforts for dialysis patients can follow these simple steps:
- Save or take a screenshot of the QR code on NKF’s website
- Tap on the “Scan” function in Touch ‘n Go eWallet
- Tap on “Scan from Gallery”
- Select the QR code
- Key in the donation amount you prefer
Members of the public can also find out more through NKF’s website at nkf.org.my/support-us/project-campaign/touchngo-campaign/ or call 03-7954 9048.
