Our Campaign Storyends 15 Feb 2019, 11:59 PM
Energetic, creative, empathetic, curious and playful are few of the qualities seen in, the future generation of our society i.e. 'Children'. We, as parents, caretakers and responsible adults, endeavour to hone these skills, to build a better future for our young ones. Imagine the consequences, if they are deprived of one or more of these inherent elements, beyond anyone's control, result, 'Psychological turmoil'. What would happen, if, in addition to the 'Mental torture', they were to experience physical pain, agony and discomfort?
'Cancer' in children inflicts mental and physical suffering, resulting in an arduous journey of life ahead, both for the parents and their children.
11 years ago, we saw our son with the pipes and needles in 'KK Women's and Children's Hospital' going through blood transfusion, for an acute case of jaundice, it was painful to watch him. Our pain was nothing compared to the agony of families with children suffering from cancer. My desire to 'pay it forward' helped me create the campaign, 'Transpire Compassion' in the hope of raising awareness for childhood cancer, to help the families cope with physical and monetary stress. If you believe, someone, at any time in your life, has helped you, in any way then 'pay it forward' by helping the children of our community.
Help me raise $20k by 15 Feb 2019, marked as International Childhood Cancer Day. All funds raised through this campaign will go towards supporting the Cancer sub-fund. Thank you!
The Cancer Sub-Fund provides financial assistance to needy women and children diagnosed with cancer. The fund helps to pay for the cost of their cancer treatments such as chemotherapy, investigations, hospitalisation, and medication. From supporting beneficiaries in various ways ranging from a Bone Marrow Transplant to providing equipment for beneficiaries afflicted with cancer, the Cancer Sub-Fund continues to be a beacon of hope for its beneficiaries.
You can give hope to a cancer patient by giving 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*.
