Our Campaign Story

ends 18 Nov 2022, 11:59 PM


As many of you know, Uma arrived 8 weeks before her due date. She spent 35 days in neonatal care and was lucky to get the best care money could buy. Not all premature babies are as fortunate or have the means to get the care they need - anything from oxygen support to more complicated surgeries.

As we celebrate Uma turning 1, we would like to support families of other premature babies on their journeys.

All funds raised through this campaign will go towards the KKH Health Fund - Premmies Sub Fund.

About Campaign

With the largest Neonatal Intensive Care Unit facility in Singapore, KKH cares for 20 to 30 cases of parents of premature babies every year who need financial help to give their babies a chance to live and develop. On average, hospitalisation in the Neonatal ICU ranges from two to seven months and can cost from $15,000 upwards. Some of these premature babies require special formula milk, while breast pumps for the mothers, as well as other accessories and equipment, can add up substantially for the families.

In response to these needs, Mr Tan Chin Hwee, a father of a premature baby himself, set up the Premmies Sub-Fund in 2009 within the KK Hospital Health Endowment Fund, with the objective of lightening the financial burdens of parents with premature babies.

You can help further the dream of giving all premature babies a chance to grow up healthy and strong by making a gift to the Premmies Sub-Fund today.

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 2022 for your 2022 donations to be eligible for a 250% tax deduction of the gift value in YA2023. 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.
