The National Kidney Foundation (NKF) of Malaysia has announced their collaboration with e-commerce platform, Shopee to raise funds for the foundation’s underprivileged kidney failure patients.
The collaboration aims to offer haemodialysis treatment and Shopee users will be able to donate to the fundraising effort.
“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 Dr Zaki Morad Mohamad Zaher, chairman of NKF Malaysia.
“As an offline and online e-wallet, ShopeePay is a convenient and secure method of payment that synergises the traditional and digital world. Its true potential extends well beyond just retail and bill payments as seen through this partnership with the National Kidney Foundation Malaysia (NKF),” said Ian Ho, regional managing director of Shopee added.
