BEVERAGE giant Asia Pacific Breweries (APB) has donated $1 million to the National Kidney Foundation, two weeks after Heineken successfully acquired APB Limited, the parent company of APB Singapore.

NKF, the largest dialysis provider in Singapore, gave out $27.7 million in subsidies to its needy dialysis patients in the last financial year.

By 2016, it expects about 500 new patients to join its dialysis programme and plans to build four more new dialysis centres in the next four years.

Mr Koh Poh Tiong, NKF chairman, said the $1 million donation will help to provide about 7,800 haemodialysis sessions to 50 kidney patients a year.
