Who are we

Objective: to provide Day Care Dialysis Treatment to poor and needy Malaysian Patients in the Ampang area
Full Time Staff: Four (Manager,Nurse and two assistants)

Every year over 2,000 Malaysians suffer End-Stage Renal Failure. Many of these Malaysians either cannot afford private hospital charges of between RM150 and RM250 per treatment session (up to RM2,000 per month) or cannot obtain treatment in government hospitals. Furthermore, these Malaysians (often elderly) may have problems getting transport to dialysis centres (dialysis must be obtained every other day).

Dialysis is a permanent fact of life for these Malaysians as there is no cure for End Stage Renal Failure, except through a transplant.

Our objective

The objective of PMKL is to make Dialysis Treatments more easily available to average Malaysians by opening more Dialysis Centres in more areas and providing treatment at as low a cost as possible.

The inaugural PMKL Centre in Ampang now has 10 Dialysis Machines (maximum capacity is 18 machines), which can provide for up to 60 patients a day. PMKL Patients are charged the minimal cost of RM60 per visit. Comfortable sofa chairs and TVs are provided for patients as treatments take a long time. Treatments of medication are charged to patients at cost and a doctor’s services are provided free of charge to patients (doctor’s fees are borne by PMKL).

There is easy access to the PMKL centre from any Bus / Public Transport and there is parking in the shopping centre in which the centre is located.

Our needs

It costs RM20,000 to run the centre per month, which is all raised through fundraising. The sole government subsidy is RM50 per treatment (the same subsidy is received by the National Kidney Foundation and other NGOs dialysis centre).

We need volunteers: Medical staff (doctors, nurses, therapists)

We welcome volunteers in organising fundraising projects. Also, if you are interested in helping patients with transport to and from the centre in Plaza Ampang, please contact us.

We also welcome donations of medical equipment – please contact us for details.

PMKL needs to constantly raise funds to subsidise the cost of dialysis treatment and to open more centres for patients. Any donations are very welcome. Cheques Made Payable to: Pertubuhan Medifund Kuala Lumpur
