Our Campaign Story

ends 31 May 2022, 11:59 PM

I will be walking the Camino de Santiago across northern Spain totalling over 900 km in 45 days. The Camino, also known as "The Way of St James," has been a Christian pilgrimage route since the 9th century. My Camino journey starts from Saint Jean-Pied-de-Port to Santiago de Compostela. And I will continue to walk to Finisterre and my final destination is Muxia on the Atlantic coast of Spain.

Please join me in supporting the people of Ukraine in this horrendous time. Millions of Ukrainians have fled their homes and suffered unimaginable misery since the start of the Russian invasion.

My aim is to raise S$10,000 for the Singapore Red Cross Ukraine Appeal. Your support, whether S$10 or S$50, will mean so much to me. No amount is too small. I dedicate my pilgrimage to peace and justice for Ukraine and will light a candle for you my supporters at the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela.

Thank you and God bless.

About Campaign

(Note: Donations to overseas efforts are not tax-deductible. Receipts will only be issued upon request.)

This is a fundraising appeal by the Singapore Red Cross (SRC) for the Humanitarian Crisis in Ukraine.

Your donation will provide immediate aid for the vulnerable -- unaccompanied minors, women with children, elderly & people with disabilities; support their basic needs like shelter, food/water, & psychosocial support.

In response to the fast-growing refugee crisis, SRC has contributed $2.5 million in humanitarian aid to Ukraine and 6 neighbouring countries - Poland, Hungary, Lithuania, Slovakia, Moldova and Romania.

SRC Secretary General/CEO Benjamin William: "The combination of an active and bloody conflict, extreme cold weather and Covid-19 means that for the people in the conflict regions and those who have been displaced from their homes, the days ahead will be a struggle for survival. The humanitarian needs on the ground will continue to rise as the conflict intensifies. Our team has been working closely with the Ukrainian Red Cross, the IFRC, the ICRC, and other National Societies to ensure the most appropriate and timely response."

The humanitarian needs are massive & the operations are complex, with the ongoing conflict & border crisis hurting innocent civilians. We call for your support to this critical humanitarian operation.
