About Us

Our Mission
Established in 2004, Kidz Horizon Appeal is a charitable organisation that attends specifically to the medical needs of the most vulnerable in society – the needy children and women with chronic illnesses

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

Grand Ballroom, The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore
This year, the Kidz Horizon Appeal will be celebrating its 10th anniversary – 10 years of partnering KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital (KKH) in reaching out to support the most vulnerable in our society – needy women and children who have been struck by illness and in need of financial support for medical treatment and aid to help them on their journey of recovery.

To celebrate our 10th anniversary milestone, the theme for this year’s Charity Gala event will be “The World Ball”. Guests are invited to come dressed inspired by the United Nations. It's a small world we live in but with many big hearts such as yours, and with your generous support we bring communities together to make a direct impact to the lives of needy children and women.

If you would like to purchase a table or to make a direct donation, please email Christine at christine.gwee.sl@kkh.com.sg

What We Do

kkh-hef

 

 

Because every woman and child deserves good health
The KKH Health Endowment Fund (KKHHEF) supports needy women and children afflicted with cancer and other chronic conditions. Yearly, KKHHEF disbursed an average of $2 million and helped over 500 less fortunate women and children with their medical bills.

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!

About the KKH Health Endowment Fund
