Madeleine Children's Fund
The Madeleine Children's Fund was initiated in the year 2000 in memory of Madeleine Sjonell, a former M'KIS student. Madeleine was only 6 years old when she was diagnosed with a fatal malignant brain tumor. Madeleine showed tremendous courage and fought bravely against the disease; however, she passed away 13 months following her diagnosis. This year (2015) marked 15 years since Madeleine's passing and the continued efforts of the M'KIS community to bring hope to families whose children have been diagnosed with cancer. We have done so by providing much needed medical supplies and financial support for those who would have otherwise not been able to afford the expensive treatments.
We have been celebrating Madeleine's spirit and resilience through our annual Cancer Awareness Week (during the second week of October). During this week, students and teachers alike come together to raise funds for medical supplies which we donate to various hospitals. Last year, we raised a whopping RM 56,000 and hope you will continue to support us in this endeavor.
Who We are
The Madeleine Children's Fund has been built upon the hard work and dedication of parent volunteers from the M'KIS community. Over the years, Madeleine Children's Fund has initiated many events which have become traditions such as the MCF Luncheon, all thanks to the combined efforts of our committed team. However, Madeleine Children's Fund would not have been able to grow and help so many families without the support of the students, faculty and parents. Through our successful fundraisers, we have helped save more than 100 children. We want you too be a part of this community and help Madeleine Children's Fund.
Madeleine Children's Fund gladly accepts donations in cash or cheque. For cheques, please ensure they are addressed to "Madeleine Children's Fund PAC".
We are a non-registered foundation but are associated with the Mont'Kiara International School. Please be assured that every ringgit you donate goes to secure medical equipment and medications of a child fighting cancer.
