The TSM Charity Golf Foundation has been working on a project to provide dialysis care to those who cannot afford the procedure since 2010. The project recently opened its first Tan Sri Muhyiddin Charity Dialysis Centre in Titiwangsa, Kuala Lumpur thanks to support from TSM Charity Golf Foundation members. Further centres are planned or in construction in Johor, Penang and Putrajaya. For information regarding qualifying for treatment, please see below or get in touch with TSMCDC using the information in the CONTACT section of the website.
The primary site cost the TSM Charity Golf Foundation roughly 2.5 million Ringgit to set up and requires a further allowance of RM980,000 per year to cover operation and maintenance costs. It opened its doors in April 2013 after nearly a year of building and acquisition of staff and equipment.
The further sites are estimated to have a similar operational cost, although the total cost of developing each site may be lower than was required for this central Kuala Lumpur location. A ground breaking ceremony marking the start of construction of the second Tan Sri Muhyiddin Charity Dialysis Centre was overseen by YAB Tan Sri Dato Seri Hj Muhyiddin Hj Mohd Yassin and other distinguished TSM Charity Golf Foundation members in Pagoh, Johor in January 2013.
