At the Singapore Red Cross, our mission is protecting human life and dignity by reliving human suffering. We are involved in providing humanitarian services that are not readily available to the vulnerable, and are not publicly funded.
Today, over 20,000 Singaporeans are cared for by the Singapore Red Cross each year. Through our community services, we uplift disadvantaged individuals and families, and those who fall through the cracks of social service.
We champion for persons with:
- severe disability;
- the elderly who live on their own; and
- the single-parents and skipped generation families who need a listening ear and a helping hand.
There are 150 families on our Family Life Aid programme which provides them with meals with love, reading programmes for students in kindergarten & lower primary and tuition for upper primary students. All this in addition to our core national duties of training and providing first aid, blood donor recruitment and international disaster relief which we are well known for.
What is not obvious to the public is that besides the available subsidies, we need to raise $4 million to support the various local humanitarian services we provide to the community, only in Singapore.
As a Singapore Red Cross Champion, you'll belong to a special group of Singapore Red Cross’ most passionate and forward-thinking supporters.
Your gift can help provide the sustained resources needed to accelerate the pace and scale of Singapore Red Cross' work.
Here are some ways your donation is helping the less privileged:
"The FoodAid service provided by the Singapore Red Cross is useful because the food vouchers enable us to purchase fish, meat and vegetables that we don't get much of as food rations from other organisations provide primarily dry and canned food like maggi noodles, which may not be healthy for my children over the long-term." - Mdm Tan Meang Hui, FoodAid Beneficiary
"They are very good, very sincere and very helpful. Besides visiting me once a month, they would also call and check with me if I am doing well." - Mr De Silva Petiyaga, CLARE Beneficiary.
Your charitable contribution is the easiest and most efficient way to support Singapore Red Cross and its beneficiaries.
- You are in total control. You can easily start, change or stop your gift at any time online or by phone
- Your gift will allow us to support needy and vulnerable Singaporeans on a long-term basis
- You’ll receive updates on how your donations are helping those under our care, and you'll also receive news on upcoming events
- With your gift, you can make a powerful difference in someone's life today
"Singapore Red Cross is known for its disaster relief, but the impact of its local services is much closer to home for us. The TransportAid service enables my mother to get to her medical appointments largely subsidized. I hope Singaporeans will continue to give generously to local causes." - Ms Choo Peck See, TransportAid Beneficiary
Best of all, as a Singapore Red Cross Champion , you will maximize your social impact and change someone's life for the better. Be a Singapore Red Cross Champion and change someone's life for the better today!
