JOHOR BARU : Non-governmental organisation Yayasan Kebajikan Suria recently donated a dialysis machine to a National Kidney Foundation (NKF) Malaysia treatment facility here. Yayasan Kebajikan Suria secretary James Ho said this was the first time the NGO donated a dialysis machine which would hopefully help the NKF to cope with an increasing number of patients at their dialysis centre in Permas Jaya, Johor Baru. "With the contribution of the dialysis machine, we want to help kidney patients restore their dignity and further improve their ability to take part in the community,” said Ho after presenting the new dialysis machine worth RM46,500 to NKF chief executive officer Chua Hong Wee at the dialysis centre here. On average, a dialysis machine could be used up to seven to eight years. Ho said the foundation was committed to helping the underprivileged, and admitted that the dialysis centre was in critical need of new machines.
