Hi everyone, sunrise and sunset experiences often hold special and unique meaning to each one of us. From now till 10 September 2021, we are collecting 40 sunny perspectives through our daily activities to fundraise for families in need! Through each perspectives, we hope to inspire joy and hope for families in need.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. Join us in supporting families such as Sarina's. Together, we can bring much needed hope and light to families in need as they look forward to sunny days ahead!Some things to note: 1. Care Corner is an IPC so your donations would qualify for tax deductions. 2. Donations will be matched dollar for dollar by Toteboard
