Our Campaign Story

ends 31 Dec 2021, 11:59 PM

We are a group of varsity sailors from NUS seeking to share the joy of sailing with the community by attempting a full circumnavigation of mainland Singapore using only wind and sail power on 25-26 September 2021 - the "Sail SG Challenge". In doing so, we hope to raise funds for the KKH Health Fund to support patients in need of financial assistance for their medical needs.

We first came up with the idea for the Challenge when the medical students in our group reflected on their hospital posting experiences. One experience that stood out was working with families facing the unexpected challenge of chronic diseases in their young children.

With our own teenage years not that far behind us, we can relate closely to the beneficiaries of the fund - the young patients of KKH - and the issues they face, such as schooling, friends, family matters and relationships.

Having ourselves gone through these issues that they have to navigate on top of their illnesses, our hearts do go out to them and we want to express our support by doing something special for them through this sport that has brought us together.

All funds raised through this campaign will go towards supporting patients in need.

About The Charity

Because every woman and child deserves good health...

"Motherhood and childhood are entitled to special care and assistance." (United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights)

Here at KK Women's and Children's Hospital, we believe that every woman and child deserves good health. The KKH Health Fund (KKHHF) raises funds to help needy patients, who very often have exhausted all options and are in need of financial assistance, for their medical expenses. The fund also supports education, research and disease prevention programmes targeted at improving women's and children's health.

As KKHHF is totally dependent on donations, on behalf of the patients, we thank the generous donors who have literally saved lives by enabling the fund to continue with its work of giving financial support to needy patients.

You can be a part of this life-saving cause; we appeal to you for your kind and generous support*.

*All donations received are managed by SingHealth Fund (SHF), an institution of Public Character (UEN 201624016E). Donations must be received by Giving.sg for processing by 31 December 2021 for your 2021 donations to be eligible for a 250% tax deduction of the gift value in YA2021. Donations received after 31 December of the current year will be processed for tax deduction in the following year instead. Thank you for your understanding.
