Our Campaign Story

ends 20 Dec 2020, 11:59 PM

We are a group of four working at TTSH (Tan Tock Seng Hospital) and we love running. This year, to mark TTSH Community Fund's 25th anniversary, we have decided to come together and help fundraise for the charity to help a special group of home ventilation patients.

These patients are dependent on breathing equipment due to respiratory illnesses or conditions caused by other medical issues. Many such patients want to go home but they cannot afford the expensive out-of-pocket cost of the breathing equipment.

You can help these patients by donating to our campaign. Your donations will go towards TTSH Community Fund's Help Me Go Home Programme, which provides these patients with the much-needed breathing machines and also cough assist machines (where required) so that they can return home to their loved ones.

We will be running a total of 700km starting 19 Oct 2020. Please support our effort and donate generously. Thank you.

About The Charity

In keeping with Mr Tan Tock Seng's Legacy of Giving, Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH) set up its charity arm, TTSH Community Fund, in August 1995 to improve the quality of life of our patients and the community.

Every year, our Charity disburses more than $2 million for our patient-centred programmes, and to support healthcare research, innovation and training for our staff and the community, to deliver better patient care.

From expensive non-standard medication and breathing equipment to mobility aids, community rehabilitation programmes, and even dentures to help them eat better, TTSH Community Fund helps needy patients with their out-of-pocket medical expenses so that they can gain greater independence, improve their quality of life and enable them to integrate back into the community.

Our Charity runs entirely on public donations. Every dollar to the Charity goes directly to support our activities. TTSH Community Fund is a registered charity with IPC status.
