From homemade offerings to a myriad of ‘Hello Kitty’ wares, NHCS colleagues showed their support to fundraising efforts with their inpouring orders!
Compassion with #OneKindAct is the theme of SingHealth President’s Challenge (PC) 2021. As the nation moves from pandemic to endemic, many individuals and families continue to experience challenges in their lives as they adjust to the changes. Through PC, we can do our part to help its beneficiaries* during this trying period.
Department and staff fundraising
From homemade offerings of bread and almond sticks, to a myriad of ‘Hello Kitty’ wares much to the delight of its fans, NHCS colleagues showed their support to department and staff fundraising efforts with their inpouring orders!
“Our last department sale ended in September. Together with the pledge cards, we have raised close to $50,000 to help our beneficiaries,” shared Jacqueline Huo from Process Transformation and Improvement, who is also NHCS’ representative at SingHealth PC 2021.

A regular fundraiser at PC, Jasmine Lim from NHRIS joined hands with Yvonne Ng from Cardiac Laboratory to raise a whopping $7,500 from their popular dark chocolate brownie. "We used only quality halal ingredients and made the brownies the night before each order collection to ensure optimal freshness. Thanks to everyone’s support, we made about 248 brownies this time, exceeding our initial target. The effort was well worth it!"
The acts of kindness do not end there. On 24 September, together with Changi General Hospital and National Neuroscience Institute (NNI), NHCS staff delivered valued Ez-link cards and food items to 10 caregivers under the CGH HomeCare Assist, one of the beneficiaries in this year’s PC.

“The beneficiaries shared that they feel fortunate to receive help during this pandemic. I felt really happy when I saw the smiles on their faces,” shared NC Liang Ming. She added that this is her third year participating in outreach activities for PC and believes that ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive’!
