We're collecting 40 sunny perspectives through our daily activities to inspire joy and hope for families. This is our very first fundraising effort as a team! Hope to have your support!
This is our very first fundraising effort as part of Care Corner 40th Anniversary, so your support and donations would mean a lot to us :)
About the cause
Care Corner is celebrating our 40th Anniversary, and to commemorate this milestone Care Corner has launched '40 Days of Care’ – a campaign to raise awareness and funds for five meaningful causes from 2 August to 10 September.
As part of the campaign, we will be fund-raising to support “Transnational low-income families in need of emergency medical funds”
1 in 4 citizen marriages in Singapore are transnational. Non-citizen spouses who are unable to get permanent residency do not qualify for medical subsidies. As a result, when they are suddenly hit with a health emergency or chronic illness, medical bills mount up and become a crippling burden for families who are already struggling financially.
One such case is Sarina (not her real name). She was diagnosed with a low-lying placenta that caused bleeding in the seventh month of her pregnancy. As a result, she had to be hospitalised for over a month, leading to medical bills amounting to several thousand dollars. Given her status as a foreigner (i.e. long-term visit pass holder), her access to financial support was limited. With her son's birth complications, on top of the outstanding medical bills, the family is struggling to cover their basic needs such as rental payments, diapers and milk powder.
Some things to note:
Thanks for all the heart work that you guys are doing! Press on!!
