NKF Patient Incentive Funds: Empowering Patients

A sous chef by occupation, Encik Roshidi bin Hashim used to work in a well-known hotel before being diagnosed with kidney failure. Although he needs to go for dialysis 3 times a week, 4 hours per session, for Encik Roshidi who now dialyzes at Ping Rong-NKF Haemodialysis Centre located in Sungai Way, Petaling Jaya – it is a case of “where there is a will, there is a way.” With the NKF Patient Incentive Fund, Encik Roshidi is able to put his culinary skills to good use and provide income for his family. With this interest free loan, Encik Roshidi is able to start up a small business venture.

Today, he operates a small café at Subang Perdana selling Thai cuisine. “The more difficulties one has to encounter, within and without, the more significant and the higher in inspiration his life will be.” – Horace Bushnell
