The NUH Children's Fund is a sub-fund of NUHS Fund (one of the charities under NUHS) to provide financial assistance to needy patients of the Khoo Teck Puat – National University Children’s Medical Institute (KTP-NUCMI) at the NUH. Find out more about NUHS Fund
The KTP-NUCMI is a tertiary institution equipped to provide comprehensive and specialised medical and surgical services for newborns, children and adolescents. The conditions treated here range from cough and cold to more complex conditions such as kidney and liver disease.
Medical treatment can be costly. Every year, there are patients who encounter financial difficulties in spite of government healthcare subsidies such as Medisave, MediShield or Medifund schemes and/or private insurance. The number of such patients who require financial aid continue to rise yearly.
We believe that no one should forgo treatment because of financial difficulties. As such, the NUH Children's Fund (formerly known as NUHkids Fund or CAP Fund) was started in 1990.
To enable all children and adolescents to achieve good health and well-being regardless of their financial circumstances.
To help children and adolescents who require financial assistance for their medical treatment.
