Match For Life Carnival 2019
Match For Life is a new flagship event organised by the Bone Marrow Donor Programme in conjunction with Home United to raise awareness about bone marrow donation as well as to break any stigmas or myths surrounding it. The event took place on the 12th
of October from 9am to 7pm, and attracted about 3500 participants from all walks of life. The guest of honour was Ms Sun Xueling, the senior parliamentary secretary from the Ministry of Home Affairs and Ministry of National Development.
Match For Life comprised of a soccer match and a carnival happening concurrently. In the carnival, there were roadshows where people were encouraged to learn more and sign up to be donors. The student’s role in this project was to conceptualise,
plan, organise and execute the carnival. They organised games and activites for participants that helped to spread the message of the facts and importance of bone marrow donation.
