- Together We Party!

- 16th January 2011
16 January 2011 was a day of partying for the kidney patients and their families!
A celebration party was organised by KDF Renal Friends to celebrate the patients’ perseverance in fighting the illness during the year that had passed. Patients from the People’s Dialysis Centre were also invited to join us on this day. This annual party aims to give patients the opportunity to meet other dialysis patients, and to have a good time singing songs and playing games, with good food and presents for all.
The party officially started with laughter when the Conductorcise, a workout whereby everyone was a music conductor who moved and swayed with the beat of the music, began. Other games followed, one of which caused much hustle and bustle as the patients went around the party hall searching for paper-made rabbit figures amongst other animal figures to win prizes.
Besides these, there was a singing performance by patients who volunteered to sing for the rest. Their courage and performance won them much applause from the audience.
To encourage patients to take good care of their health, the Most Compliant Patient Award was given out to three patients who had taken exceptionally good care of their health in the past year; two of them from the KDF-SWWT Dialysis Centre and one from the KDF-Ghim Moh Dialysis Centre. In ensuring that everyone had something to bring home from this event, every patient won something from the lucky draw.
KDF would like to take this opportunity to thank all the volunteers and sponsors for making this event possible, especially the Kampong Glam Community Centre for sponsoring the venue, Rochor Centre RC for sponsoring the karaoke system, Public Utilities Board and Abbott Laboratories (Singapore) Pte Ltd.
