Be A Rainbow

Hallo everyone! We are Team R4inbow, a group of students from Dunman High School, consisting of Deborah, Sheryl, Sarah and Rachel participating in the Citi-YMCA Youth for Causes 2016. Fueled by a passion to make our mark in society and lead a meaningful school life, we embarked on this project to help Club Rainbow by raising funds and awareness of their cause.
Club Rainbow provides a range of comprehensive support services for the families of children who suffer from major chronic and potentially life threatening illnesses. By working closely with KKH, NUH and SGH, Club Rainbow presently helps more than 700 children and their families.
We often forget children under palliative care and their supporting families face an emotional struggle on a daily basis. And thus, we as a team see the importance of not only providing financial aid but also emotional support for those in need. A simple presence can easily make their day and this can only be achieved through an inclusive and caring society.
Here at Team R4inbow, we envision a society that is not only aware, but understands. Our project aims not to merely be a charity event but a personal experience of bridging the gap between our beneficiary and our audience. Here, we have the endearing smiles of the children we hope to help. We believe that the way to sustain these smiles on their faces is to show them that their journey is not a lonely one.
Club Rainbow (Singapore) was set up in 1992 to provide a range of comprehensive support services for the families of children who suffer from major chronic and potentially life threatening illnesses. By working closely with KKH, NUH and SGH, Club Rainbow presently helps more than 800 children and their families.
Children in Club Rainbow range from newborn babies and youths up to the age of 21 years. They require frequent visits to hospitals for treatment, complicated therapy and long-term medication. On the recommendation of their respective doctors, these children are referred to Club Rainbow for follow up support.
