Adding some spice is celebrity Chef Thaninthorn Chantrawan (or Chef Noom as he is popularly known) from Thailand, famous for his successful stint on the Thai version of Iron Chef.

During the “Better Lives” Charity Gala Dinner, an auction will be carried out and all funds raised donated to NKF. In addition to providing dialysis treatment, these funds will contribute towards the education and prevention efforts to raise awareness and curb the rise of kidney diseases such as diabetes and hypertension, which are the leading causes of kidney failure.
