Our Causes

For the first edition of Carry Hope Run, we will be supporting 2 meaningful charities related to rare diseases. They are the Rare Disorders Society (Singapore) and Rare Disease Fund, and both charitable organisations have very noble causes!

Adopted charities:

RDSS_logo_purple.png Rare Disorders Society (Singapore) or RDSS is a non-profit organisation initiated by parents of children with LSD (Lysosomal Storage Disorder). Established in 2011, it aims to create awareness about various life threatening rare diseases (RD). RDSS is currently the only organisation focusing and supporting only on rare disease patients in Singapore. Unlike other charities that focus on specific disease group or made rare genetic disease as one of the supported group, RDSS accept and support ALL patients currently diagnosed with rare diseases, including those undiagnosed cases. RDSS looks at improving the lives of the affected children with timely, accurate diagnosis and intervention. Through building a well-established system, it also aims to encourage society to join parents of RD patients in creating a better future for them.  For more details, please visit www.rdss.org.sg.

The Rare Disease Fund (RDF) is a charity fund that seeks to provide long-term financial support for patients with rare diseases requiring treatment with high cost medicines. The RDF is managed by KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital (KKH) Health Fund (part of SingHealth Fund). It has the support of the Ministry of Health and provides a platform for the community and Government to come together to support patients with rare diseases over their lifetime.

Your gift to the RDF is life-giving. You will be providing financial assistance for the expensive medicines that patients need to allow them the opportunity to live a relatively normal life.

All donations are welcome, and no donation is too small for the RDF. Your kind contribution will be a great source of help and support to the patients and their families as they battle these diseases.

For every dollar of public donation, the Government will match $3, boosting the impact of the fund. Tax deduction for all eligible donations made from 1 January 2016 to 31 December 2021. (For more information, please refer to www.iras.gov.sg)
