Club Rainbow is a charity committed to providing comprehensive help to children who are suffering from a range of chronic and life-threatening illnesses and their families. These Rainbow Children have to persevere each day to cope with their illnesses and its debilitating effects just to lead as close to a normal life as possible. Many of Club Rainbow’s services are geared towards helping the entire family in a holistic way as every family member is likely to be impacted by the Rainbow child’s illness in one form or another. By providing compassionate relevant services, they aim to give all their beneficiaries a better quality of life and hope for the future. Source
3. Straits Times Pocket Money Fund (SPMF)
The Straits Times School Pocket Money started in 2000 as a community project initiated by The Straits Times that provides pocket money to children from low-income families to help them through school. The children can use this money for school-related expenses, such as buying a meal during recess, paying for their bus fares or using it to meet their other schooling needs. The financial help also eases the burden of the many parents, who are already struggling to feed their families on their meagre incomes. Source
4. Children Cancer Foundation
With about 120 new cases of childhood cancer diagnosed annually, it is important that we press on with our fight against this disease. Up till now, the causes of most childhood cancers are still unknown. However, one thing is certain – cancer inflicts immense physical and emotional stress on the child and family. About 90% of the funds are expended directly to our beneficiaries in the form of Financial Assistance, Casework and Counselling, Therapeutic Play, Childhood Cancer Transplant Programme, Parent Support Programmes, Educational talks and workshops, Social and Recreational Programme, training and research amongst others.

Named ARCHearts, which stands for Ayer Rajah Community Hearts, the programme has three core components – Food Connect, Silver Connect and Youth Connect. Food Connect will assist residents with basic food necessities. Silver Connect aims to improve the economic and social well-being of the needy elderly, while Youth Connect aims to enrich the lives of youths from disadvantaged homes. Needy families will be able to use food vouchers worth S$25 to redeem food. And for those who are less mobile or cook at home, they can opt for customised food packs to be delivered to their homes. Under Silver Connect, food vendors in the community will provide elderly residents with cooked meals. Volunteers will also help ensure the seniors’ homes are in good condition, provide transport to those who need regular medical treatment, and assist the elderly in understanding government help schemes. And for youths aged 12 to 19 from disadvantaged homes, Youth Connect will provide them with personal mentoring and coaching by trained volunteers and career opportunities. Source
