A CENTRE OF HOPE, A DREAM FULFILLED
The late Raja Perlis had to undergo dialysis treatment during the last three years of his life. Many of his treatments were done in Kuala Lumpur because facilities for haemodialysis in Perlis were so limited. After watching how kidney dialysis dramatically improved the quality of Tuanku’s last few years of life, the late Raja Perempuan Besar Perlis made a vow that it was going to be her aim to help improve the lives of those with end stage renal failure. She said, “Knowing how crucial dialysis treatment is for patients with renal failure, I would like to make it possible for his people to benefit from similar facilities closer to home”.
The Pusat Dialisis Tuanku Syed Putra – NKF provided the people of Perlis with its first NGO dialysis centre. Prior to this some of the patients not treated at the Kangar General Hospital had to travel to other towns like Jitra or Sungei Petani. Furthermore, according to the late Raja Perempuan Besar Perlis, at that time, the queue for those seeking dialysis treatments at Kangar General Hopital was so long that some patients did not live long enough to get on the treatment programme.
It began with a dream and six years later the dream was fulfilled in 2007. Today the Pusat Dialisis Tuanku Syed Putra – NKF continues to provide the medical facility for chronic renal patients in Perlis irrespective of race or religion; and to provide assistance for those who are unable to afford the treatment cost.
