My Story

I'm running 400 km over 40 days to fundraise for families in need! 

This is my very first fundraising effort, so your support and donations would mean a lot to me :) 
Care Corner is celebrating our 40th Anniversary, and to commemorate this milestone we’ve launched '40 Days of Care’ – a campaign to raise awareness and funds for five meaningful causes from 2 August to 10 September.  

I’ll 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 me in supporting families such as Sarina's. Together, we can bring much needed hope and light to families in need.  

Some things to note: 
1. When you donate, simplygiving will ask for a 'tip' to support the platform. This is optional. If you would like to opt not to tip please choose 'other' and  indicate a '0' amount. To support the platform, I'll be giving out of my pocket a 'tip' at the end of the campaign. 
2. Care Corner is an IPC so your donations would qualify for tax deductions.
