Our Campaign Story

ends 31 Dec 2017, 11:59 PM

Christmas is a joyful, warm and festive season- a season where we share our love by exchanging gifts and presents with family, friends and colleagues. Instead of exchanging gifts, the idea of giving and sharing the joy with everyone through donations during Christmas started 2 years ago after hearing what some of my cousins are doing. While many are fortunate to have a stable and comfortable roof, a happy family, ability to do whatever we want, there are some whom have so little.
This year, I have chosen Singapore Cancer Society as the beneficiary for the donations and using Giving.sg as the platform. We have heard of healthy people, who are diagnosed with Cancer, some at a very young age. I hope the donations can help give patients better quality of treatment and support.

About The Charity

The Singapore Cancer Society (SCS) was established in 1964 by individuals from the Rotary Club of Singapore West, the Lions Club and Jaycees, and was inaugurated by the then Minster of Health, Mr Yong Nyuk Lin.

Registered as a society in 1984 and accorded IPC (Institution of a Public Character) status as a charity in 1995 by the Ministry of Health, the Society is also a member of the National Council of Social Service and the Singapore Hospice Council. SCS celebrated 50 years of service in 2014. Being self-funded, the Society is heavily dependent on public donations to provide quality services to cancer patients, their families, and members of the public.
