1. Objective of the Signature Project
Dialysis machines provide a lifeline to kidney patients. We know JB Lions Renal Care Foundation need to have new dialysis machines because continuous usage wears down the dialysis machines, which have a limited lifespan of 30,000 hours or eight years of service. Hence, the dialysis machines have to be replaced constantly to ensure patients receive optimum treatment. Our donation of RM50,964.65 will provide 1 dialysis machine that can benefit six patients who are on dialysis for about four hours each session, three times a week.
3. Members Involved
