Our Campaign Story

ends 31 May 2023, 11:59 PM

Dear friends,

As you may have heard, a devastating earthquake recently struck Syria, causing widespread destruction and loss of life. Many families have been left homeless, injured, and traumatized by this disaster.

We can't undo the damage that has been done, but we can do our part to help those affected by the earthquake. That's why to raise money for this cause I will be running the Sundown Marathon on the 20th of May SGT 11PM with a 10kg weight vest and attempt to complete it under 6 Hours.

Through our donations, we can provide vital assistance to those who need it most. This may include food, shelter, medical care, and psychological support for survivors. Every little bit helps, and even a small contribution can make a big difference in someone's life.

All amounts donated would be directed to Red Cross and their humanitarian efforts for the Syrian/Turkey earthquake.

Track me live on Raceday!


About Campaign

(Note: Donations to overseas efforts are non tax-deductible. Receipts will only be issued upon request.)

We call for your support towards the Singapore Red Cross (SRC)'s humanitarian response to the 7.8 magnitude earthquake that devastated Turkey and Syria. Your donation will go towards supporting the needs of those affected by the earthquake, including emergency shelter, first aid and food.

SRC has earlier pledged USD $50,000 each in humanitarian aid to the Turkish Red Crescent (TRC) and the Syrian Arab Red Crescent (SARC) to directly support their ongoing relief efforts.

"We are deeply saddened by the loss of lives and injury, as well as damage to property and livelihoods, arising from the devastating disaster, and are committed to supporting the emergency relief and recovery operations," said Mr Benjamin William, Secretary General/CEO of Singapore Red Cross, "We hope the people of Singapore will support our fundraising appeal, to bring hope and help to affected communities in Turkey and Syria."

Please make a donation during this time of need.
