MESSAGE FROM PRESIDENT MKAC
MKAC – WHAT WE FIRMLY BELIEVE
We are so glad you found us. Welcome to our website and thank you for visiting. We hope that you enjoy browsing and get some good insights as to who we are and what we do. We would be happy to hear from you.
We at MKAC embrace the philosophy that the highest service we can perform for others is to help them to stand on their own.
Our beneficiaries, who are kidney patients, endure much pain, suffering and difficulties in their lives. Their perseverance in the face of adversity make them deserving of our compassion. But they do not need our pity. They may be challenged but they are not helpless.
We at MKAC wholeheartedly commit to serving kidney patients in Singapore. All our programmes and activities are designed to provide compassionate care and support, encourage interaction and impart skills and awareness. Our approach is to work together with them, in the spirit of “gotong-royong” as they face their difficulties.
We truly believe that each and every one of our beneficiaries deserves to be treated with the utmost dignity and respect. And we will do everything possible to provide them with the best opportunities to live and enjoy life to the fullest.
There is no substitute for conviction, hard work, tenacity, drive and unwavering determination. We do it as a team. And as a team we will continue to strive for excellence and to be an organisation of good character that is worthy and deserving of public support.
Finally we would like to thank you for the bottom of our hearts for all your support and encouragement that you have given to us over the many years. We look forward to your kind and continuing support.

Muslim Kidney Action Association
Family Case Management Project
The programme aims to provide a direct form of quality sustainable assistance to kidney patients and their families. Since then, it has evolved to a systematic and targeted approach of providing critically-needed support.
Family Excellence Circle
A Family Excellence Circle (FEC) is a social support network where kidney patients and their families are invited to meet regularly to share their life experiences with MKAC and with each other.
Passion 4 Education Programme
The programme was established to provide for the children from kidney patient families. Through P4E, primary and secondary-age youth who under perform in school are encouraged to take a fresh interest in their weak subjects.
MKAC Skills Development Programme
In 2010 MKAC introduced several skills upgrading classes for our beneficiaries. The goal of this program is to upgrade the skills of the kidney patients and enhance their employment prospects.
Financial Assistance Scheme
Low-income individuals in Singapore who suffer from chronic kidney failure typically receive some form of subsidy from NKF or KDF to ameliorate the cost of dialysis treatments. The patients in MKAC’s database today mostly receive this subsidy.
Job Placement Scheme
The Job Placement scheme searches and identifies job opportunities that are the best match for the participant’s skills and readies the participant for starting employment.
