Help bring hope to Sabrina

Our Campaign Storyends 21 Feb 2016, 11:59 PM
We are a group of teenagers from various schools and backgrounds, who have gathered together with a desire to bring hope to the less fortunate children out there.
Life's greatest challenge is it's unpredictability. Sabrina, who turns 13 this year, understood the tragic meaning of this sentence when her father was diagnosed with kidney failure back in 2012. Prior to that, Sabrina had a blessed family filled with warmth, consisting of loving parents and two younger siblings. Sabrina's mum had to quit her job to take care of the family after her father became bedridden. Tragically, a year later, her dad passed away.
As Sabrina's mother had ceased working, they were left with no sources of income. The Social Service Office and the Compassion Fund provided interim assistance to the family in the immediate aftermath of the crisis. Since then, the Compassion Fund has continued providing financial support to ensure that Sabrina and her younger siblings are able to continue schooling.
We aim to raise a total of $7,000 for the schooling needs of Sabrina and her two younger siblings. The money will be used for, but not limited to
- pocket money for meals
- school uniform and shoes
- transportation costs
This will not be possible without your kind help.

Compassion Fund aims to give early and timely assistance to PREVENT the students families from spiralling into poverty or developing other chronic family problems. It provides immediate assistance at the point of need to allow the family, time during the interim, to develop longer term solutions. It is the intent of the Compassion Fund to complement and not replace existing assistance schemes.
