Our Campaign Story

DONATE to support 8 trekkers from CAL going to Everest Base Camp in May 2020. Every dollar will go towards supporting caregivers of persons with mental health issues.

It has been reported in the Singapore Mental Health Study 2016 that one in seven people in Singapore has experienced mental health issues in their lifetime. In order to increase awareness of mental health and raise funds to support Caregivers Alliance Limited, we will be trekking to Everest Base Camp (EBC) in April 2020. All costs for the trek are personally underwritten, and all funds raised will be for the benefit of Caregivers Alliance Limited and its beneficiaries.

The experience of people with mental health conditions and their caregivers is a journey of resilience. For many of them, just getting through daily life can feel like scaling a mountain. Life has its ups and downs, but we want to be able to put our best foot forward and give everything our best shot, so as to get more people to talk about mental health issues, and debunk the many misconceptions surrounding them.

5 of the 8 trekkers of the CAL Team are caregivers that truly understand the journey of caring for someone with mental health issues. This trip is very dear to our hearts. As we trek this challenging path to EBC, we want to show the love and support for our loved ones and also the many caregivers out there.

We hope that you, too, will decide to make a difference in someone's life by contributing to the cause and pledging
