Intended use of funds through the YFC 2023 programme

Engaging and involving the YFC participants
Student volunteers will have the opportunity to participate in fund raising activities for our charity. They could also raise awareness for the cause through social medias, organising meaningful activities or create artwork or souvenirs for our beneficiaries, support our events or group activities. The student volunteers will also have the chance to learn more about the diseases and development from medical experts or our partners. We encourage the volunteers to be creative and resourceful in their project, to raise awareness for the cause, to sharpen leadership skills and team building, making a positive impact for the targeted community as well.
