Due to the COVID-19 situation, AFTH Carnival'20 will be cancelled. However, AFTH still hopes to continue our fundraising efforts for SCS.
COVID-19 impacted SCS' fundraising efforts significantly for 2020 as multiple fundraising events, AFTH Carnival'20 alike, were cancelled. The fight against cancer is an ongoing battle, we should not neglect the cancer community even in this trying time. We appeal for your kind support to donate and help SCS continue their work to serve those in need.
Singapore Cancer Society (SCS), a charity organisation whose work involves helping these patients. Their team of doctors and nurses are continuing to provide essential hospice care during this difficult period. Needy patients can still apply for welfare support to ensure that they get timely treatment without delay. SCS is also committed to continue transporting beneficiaries to and from the hospitals for their medical appointments. SCS also provides other forms of support such as counseling and cancer rehabilitation remotely so that our cancer community is engaged.
No act of kindness, however small, is ever wasted. If you can, please also do help us by sharing this campaign with your friends and families. Thank you for your donation and ensuring that no one in our community is left behind.
With your support, no one needs to fight cancer alone.
