Since it started, the Appeal has adopted the KKH Health Endowment Fund (KKHHEF) and almost a million is raised annually to help children with chronic illnesses, including cancer.
Into its 10th successful year, the Appeal has been able to raise almost $9 million to help more than 600 needy patients alleviate the financial burden for their families and allowed them to concentrate on helping their loved ones get better.
The appeal has raised an average of $1 million a year and has successfully supported the KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital’s Play Therapy Programme to make the hospital experience less stressful for sick children.
The Kidz Horizon Appeal is made up of like-minded friends from various industries who have come together to volunteer their time and resources to help the less fortunate needy women and children who are ill, by raising funds and volunteering towards the KKH Health Endowment Fund.
The Kidz Horizon Appeal was being conferred the President’s Social Service Award – Informal Group in October 2009 for relieving needy patients of their worries over medical expenses. Click here to view

We are also thankful to have met wonderful corporates and individuals from different industries who worked with us on various projects to benefit the needy children and women who needed help with medical expenses.
Because every woman and child deserves good health
Low-income women with serious illnesses such as cancer, high-risk pregnancies and gynaecological conditions are not usually financially equipped to bear the costs of medical treatment. Your donation provides essential support to needy paediatric patients, as well as low-income women with serious illnesses.
Every year KKHHEF sees an increase in the number of patients seeking assistance. These patients are treated with the best possible medical expertise and care at KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital.
Thanks to the generous donors throughout the years, these patients have been able to turn to KKHHEF for help.
Thank you for being part of this life-saving cause!
As an Institution of Public Character, donations to the KKHHEF are tax-deductible. For more information, you can visit the fund’s website at www.kkh.com.sg/kkhhef
