Climbing for Cancer Research
by Melissa Loh for NCC Research Fund
We are a group of 8 friends climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in August 2018. We would like to use the opportunity to raise awareness about the National Cancer Centre Singapore (NCCS) as well as funds for the NCC Research Fund. The NCCS sees 150,000 patient visits a year, treating almost 70% of cancer patients in the public sector. But did you also know that the NCCS runs almost 200 clinical trials in a year? ********** My father was a patient of the NCCS for almost a decade after being diagnosed with stage four lung cancer. He underwent 2 clinical trials. At the time of his diagnosis, we were prepared for a remaining life expectancy of 2-3 years. It is remarkable he had so many more years than that. But beyond that, we are immensely grateful for the quality of life he enjoyed. These 9 years of quality life are without a doubt attributable to the holistic care of the multidisciplinary team at the NCCS and the new medicines made available through the trials run by the NCCS. In a country which sees almost 35 people diagnosed with cancer every day, we would like to show some support for the NCCS Research Fund and provide hope to Singaporeans living with cancer.
Japan Flood Relief 2018
by Mercy Relief
On Sunday, 8 July, torrential downpours in western Japan have caused flash flooding and landslides, prompting the evacuation of more than two million people. With a death toll of 179 casualties (as of 11 July), it is Japan's deadliest weather-related disaster in more than three decades. More than 200,000 people remain without water under the scorching sun, with temperatures hitting 33 Celsius in some of the hardest-hit areas, such as the city of Kurashiki, where Mercy Relief will be conducting emergency relief operations together with a local NGO. Mercy Relief calls for an urgent appeal for donations to reach our initial crowdfunding goal of $10,000 to bring more humanitarian aid to the affected communities. Join us in empowering these communities! Donate now! *Donations for foreign purposes are not eligible for tax-deductions. Photo credits: EPA-EFE, AAR Japan, Mercy Relief

UBS Private Funds Group - Mount Kota Kinabalu Climb
by Kelvin Chang for AWWA Ltd
Next week, the UBS Private Funds Group (APAC) will be embarking on a climb up Mount Kota Kinabalu - we believe that scaling one of the highest peaks in Southeast Asia is the perfect way to call attention to, and raise money for a special cause. As part of the UBS corporate philanthropy theme, we will be supporting the AWWA program - Special Student Care Centre - an after-school care for students with special needs. UBS will match all donations made by UBS employees to this initiative up to a certain amount. We encourage you to donate generously to support children and their caregivers in need via the link on the right.
Help 8 Residents Raise 100k for the Home
by St. John's Home For Elderly Persons
We are a team of eight residents from St. John's Home For Elderly Persons located at 69 Wan Tho Ave. We took up the challenge of helping the Home raise $100,000 to build our new Home. Even though with age ranging from 70 to 90 and not very savvy in digital media, we are eager to learn. We shot this video entirely on our own using mobile phone! In the process we had a lot of fund and learnt to work as a team. Please take 3 minutes to check out the video and support our effort to raise funds for our new Home by donating generously. Do share this video that we have created with your family and friends. Make it viral and help us achieve our target of raising $100,000 for our Home. Our Home needs to raise about a total of another $5 Million for our new building project! (The land lease of the current area St. John's Home occupies ended in 2015 and was returned to the state. This dictates that we occupy a much smaller piece of land (3,300sqm, down from 12,300sqm). Thanks to the support of many well wishers, we are on our way to building a new Home to care for existing and new residents. The building work will commence Sep 2018 and is slated to be ready end 2020. We have stepped up our fundraising efforts in recent years but with limited resources, it is a huge challenge to raise the remaining about $5 million).
Two Stories, One Hope to Overcome Poverty
by Methodist Welfare Services
Finding His Own Way A year ago, if you were to ask Mr H'ng Seng Huat about his bills, he would have been hard-pressed to tell you how much he owed. The odd-job worker was slogging more than 10 hours a day, 7 days a week. In early 2017, MWS started to provide debt-matching help to Mr H'ng for his bills, milk powder for baby Isabelle, and monthly school support for school-going kids. He cleared his debt in May 2017 and progressed to savings-matching under the guidance of MWS Family Development Programme (FDP) volunteers. Mr H'ng voluntarily exited the programme in Dec 2017. He had saved over $2,000 that he intended to use for his kids' education. "When I started on FDP, I told myself that it was a temporary solution and I needed to find my own way," he says. A Home Of Her Own For many years, single mother Mdm Ong MZ, who lives in a one-room rental flat with 3 daughters, felt downtrodden. She found it tough to get stable employment due to her low education, health problems and caregiving duties. Things started to look up when the FSC serving her gave her a part-time admin assistant job in 2014. In 2016, her case-worker recommended her for FDP. During the past year, many of her impossible dreams have materialised - her job was converted into a full-time position in April; she managed to save more. "Never in my life have I imagined that I could buy my own home, but now I'm applying for a three-room flat. I'm really proud of myself and grateful to MWS."
UBS Global Charity Bowl 2018 Supports MEANS Fund
by The Community Foundation of Singapore
UBS Global Charity Bowl 2018 will be supporting the MEANS Fund which is a community impact fund managed by the Community Foundation of Singapore (CFS). CFS will be partnering HealthServe in the administration of the fund towards disadvantaged migrant workers in Singapore. Migrant workers help keep households, businesses and industries running in Singapore. But sometimes, they can run into difficulties with abusive employers. The Migrants Emergency Assistance and Support (MEANS) Fund helps migrant workers (including domestic helpers) who are legally employed in Singapore under R passes, work permits or special passes. It provides immediate and short-term financial assistance to needy and distressed migrant workers by covering: 1. Medical care to ill or injured workers who are abandoned, abused, under threat or under fed by their employers or whose medical care is not covered by their employers. 2. Shelter and basic necessities to injured workers or those seeking redress against unfair employment practices such as violence at work or contract violation. 3. Transport cost for workers who need to go to the various authorities (like Ministry of Manpower or the police) to resolve their cases regarding unfair employment practices as well as workers seeking employment while assisting in investigations.

Urgent Funds Required For Move To New Government-Built Facility In Sungei Tengah
by Animal Lovers League
In March 2018, we will be moving to a Government-built facility in Sungei Tengah called 'Animal Lodge'. The construction and setting in our new premises will be different from our present open concept shelter in that our dogs and cats will be in flatted-two-storey buildings in kennel enclosures. We require $351,000 to manage the costs of making this move. Firstly, we have a total of 10 units; each unit comprises of five kennels, four store rooms, flexi-areas and quarantine and prep rooms. We have to engage contractors to carry out fit-out works involving the building of steel enclosures, gates, fencing and partitions, along with the installation of piping and electrical appliances like ceiling & exhaust fans, lights, fittings and equipment. Expected cost is $20,000 - $25,000 per unit; and an estimated $250,000, if not more, in total. Secondly, $66,000 has to be paid to our present landlord for extended TOL (Temporary Occupancy Licence) from January to March 2018, before we move to the 'Animal Lodge' in March 2018. A 3-month deposit totalling $35,000 may be required by AVA. This will be confirmed in due course.
Gobi March for TTSH Community Fund (Help Me Go Home programme)
by TTSH Community Fund
The Gobi March for TTSH Community Fund is an initiative by Ray Loh, Dominic Tung & Lee Sow Fong of Tan Tock Seng Hospital. As they journey through the fully self-supported 7 day 250km Gobi March (Mongolia) footrace, the team hopes to raise funds for two programmes under the TTSH Community Fund: 1) Help Me Go Home programme (see description below); and 2) Programme of All-inclusive Care for the Terminally-ill (PACT) (visit: http://bit.ly/2Kda18q) All donations raised from this campaign page will be dedicated towards the Help Me Go Home programme. Patients who need breathing machines to stay alive would love to return home to their loved ones but they cannot afford the high costs. The Help Me Go Home programme helps to alleviate their financial burdens so that they can go home to their families. Your donations will help support the following: 1. Cost of respiratory associated equipment (e.g. ventilators, cough assist machines, etc) and its consumables 2. Cost of non-respiratory associated equipment and consumables (e.g. hospital bed, pressure relieve mattress, wheelchair, milk feeds, diapers, etc) 3. Cost of preventive maintenance or parts replacement of equipment The Home Ventilation & Respiratory Support Service was featured on 1. On the Red Dot - Work In Progress.
