Christmas Light Up 2016

A Gift of Light & Hope
Every year, we celebrate Christmas with our patients and their families at the Assisi Hospice Christmas Light Up event. The highlight of the evening will be the lighting of a 30 ft tree with 30,000 bulbs. The lights symbolise hope, peace and joy for our patients and families. For many of them, this is their last Christmas, and also a precious opportunity to gather with loved ones.
This Christmas, you can make a difference to the lives of our patients. Every $10 gift will symbolically light a bulb on our tree, representing your well wishes and blessings. More importantly, your donation will help us fulfill our mission of providing palliative care for patients with life limiting illnesses.
To meet the growing need of community for palliative care, we are expanding our services when we move to the new purpose-built Assisi Hospice in January 2017. As a charity, we depend heavily on public donations to meet our operating expenses. This year, we need to raise S$7.8 million to continue our care services. Support our cause to care for our patients.
Assisi Hospice provides hospice and palliative care to patients with life limiting illnesses, caring for them and their families, regardless of faith, age, race and financial position. A Catholic charity, it believes that compassionate end-of-life care is less about 'waiting for the last day' and more about 'living to the last day'. Patients' symptoms when properly managed allow them to live life comfortably with peace and dignity. Each year, we care for more than 1,000 patients. To meet the growing needs and demands, we are expanding our services and increasing our support in the areas of nursing, medical, counselling, spiritual, social and emotional care, physiotherapy and occupational therapy.
