Singapore: Kidney Fund Scandal

Big in the Singapore blogosphere is continuing discussion over the National Kidney Fund, a popular and large local charity that had been plagued by scandal since the middle of last year. The discussion was reinvigorated by an auditors’ report that recently revealed the NKF had used only an average of 10 cents for every Singapore dollar it received for actual patient subsidies. There are a lot of posts on the topic. See Diary of a Lucky Singaporean, Cry Freedom and Yawning Bread for a sample.
