Our Campaign Story

ends 28 Feb 2023, 11:59 PM

Join MBA Olympics 2023 in its purpose to create awareness around the importance of mental well-being, which has become an important topic especially post-pandemic.

The MBA Olympics is a wholly student-run annual sporting event organized by the Nanyang Business School MBA student-led committee and clubs. The MBA Olympics will take place on 18 Feb 2023 and we run with the purpose to promote collaboration and healthy sport competition among MBA students in Singapore, with the ultimate goal to raise funds for a social cause.

This year we have appointed Samaritans of Singapore as the beneficiary. The charity is dedicated to providing confidential emotional support to individuals facing a crisis.

About The Charity

Founded in 1969, Samaritans of Singapore (SOS) is the leading suicide prevention agency in Singapore. Secular and not for profit, we provide 24-hour confidential emotional support to individuals facing a crisis, thinking about or affected by suicide. Through our programmes and services focused on suicide prevention, intervention, postvention, we hope to provide timely support to those in distress.

From 2016 to 2021, an average of 402 lives were lost to suicide in Singapore annually. This equates to more than one suicide death per day. With discussions surrounding mental health and suicide prevention more prevalent than ever, now is the time for us to make a change together.

With a 17.4% increase in the number of hotline calls answered and a 120% increase in the number of CareText messages replied, your donations will be important in helping SOS to match the rising demand for support amongst at-risk individuals across Singapore.

A donation of $1,000 can help SOS train our volunteers to take up 190 hotline calls, 290 CareText chats, or further support our CareMail platform or counselling sessions. Beyond enhancing our programmes and services, your donations will also allow us to continue providing our resources free of charge to those who need it most.

All funds donated will be dedicated towards SOS' enhancement and expansion of services and infrastructure. SOS also reserves all rights to pledge funds toward our Signature events.


Fundraising can help to raise more and change more lives.
