CapitaLand-NUH Children’s Nutrition Fund
CapitaLand-NUH Children’s Nutrition Fund was established in 2016 to support underprivileged children undergoing medical treatment for specific conditions at the pediatric ward of National University Hospital. It aims to improve food security and nutritional wellbeing of children from financially challenged families through the provision of fortified milk formulas and nutritional supplements. Since then, 124 children benefitted from the programme, out of which 83% of them experienced weight improvement. From January to December 2021, 33 out of 59 beneficiaries attained clinical expectations for their weight gain, while 37 out of 59 attained clinical expectations for their height gain.
