Intended use of funds through the YFC 2018 programme
As Home Nursing Foundation also looks after the patient’s social well-being and other practical daily needs, the funds raised will help to defray the cost of the nursing/medic fees for patients who are in the financial assistance. Funds raised will also help to provide additional support to lower-income patients, so they are able to lead fulfilled and dignified lives during their recuperating processes.
Engaging and involving the YFC participants
HNF will engage the participants by educating them about our services, and how it is run on a daily basis as well as our patients’ stories over at our office. To allow the participants to have a better understanding of the patients whom HNF serves, patients’ homes visit will be arranged. Through the home visit, participants are able to interact with the beneficiaries and hear more about their recovering journey and the different challenges they faced in life. HNF will also guide and work closely with the participants t come up with interesting fundraising activities to engage various stakeholders.
