Youth Gives

Caring Through Music 2018

In aid of Paediatric Needy Cancer Patient Fund

Youth Gives

Youth Gives is a project by Mount Miriam Cancer Hospital which started since last year to create a platform for children and young adolescents to show their support and care for the sick. This project shows that anyone from all ages can do their part to support through various forms. Our Chief Executive Officer, Ms Joan Lim-Choong said, “We are a Mission with a hospital, and that mission is our shared mission with the community. Only together, that we can defeat cancer.” 

This year, Mount Miriam Cancer Hospital is partnering Charles & Friends, a group of young, musically talented and altruistic youths to organize a concert to raise funds for needy paediatric patients.

Charles & Friends

A group of young, musically talented and altruistic youths commits themselves to a charity concert in order to raise funds for paediatric cancer patients. They have decided to come together and be philanthropists by performing their musical talents on stage and donate the funds raised through sponsorship and ticket selling to Mount Miriam Cancer Hospital.

Charles & Friends are a group of friends who have gotten to know each other through their shared passion in music. Each and every one of them is musically talented, either in vocal or musical instruments such as the piano, ukulele, cello, viola, harp, drum and bagpipes. Their excellent mastery in their own field is guided not only by their dedication and perseverance in mastering it. Some have won acclaimed awards, both locally and internationally. This group of youth have actively participated in music competitions, public performances and concerts.

As they are going to leave school soon to pursue their further studies and career, they are eager to come together and use their talents to contribute to the society and Penang, “It’s never too young to give back to society”.
