Our Campaign Story

ends 31 Oct 2019, 11:59 PM

Hope is the bridge to the world of autism. Love and care expressed through patience and the time it may take to understand and appreciate each person with autism as special and unique, can be deeply felt. It can impact the world in which we live, a world that chooses to be kind to and accepts those with special needs.

Persons with autism need our care and support to lead dignified and meaningful lives. It is important that they access education, training and services. Your gift today will help us at SAAC to continue to enrich the lives of the 382 school students, adult clients and residents with moderate to severe autism in our care.

Cantate Domino, which translates to 'Sing To The Lord', is an interdenominational ensemble of experienced choristers that has raised funds for many churches and organisations in Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia.

This year, we are privileged to have them perform a special benefit concert for us, and raise funds for our services to people with autism. The concert will feature guest conductor Eudy Palaruan, pianist Serena Lai and harpist Dora Lim, and classic hymns like His Robe for Mine, Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus, How Great Thou Art, and more choral favourites.

It will be held at Chapel of Christ the Redeemer on Saturday, 28 September 2019, at 7.00pm. Admission is complimentary. We are hoping to raise $50,000 through donations for SAAC, which will be taken at the end of the concert. Please reserve your seats on our website: www.saac.org.sg

About The Charity

Out of passion to care for the physical, emotional and social well-being of the community, the St. Andrew's Medical Mission was founded in 1913 by Dr. Charlotte Ferguson-Davie, the wife of the first Anglican Bishop of Singapore who was also a medical doctor herself. Seeing the plight of the local women and children of that time and the lack of medical services for them, Dr. Ferguson-Davie set up a dispensary along Bencoolen Street for the destitute women and children. The Medical Mission continued to meet the locals' needs and thus led to the opening of more dispensaries and eventually, St. Andrew's Mission Hospital in 1923 and St. Andrew's Orthopaedic Hospital in 1939.

Working closely with the Government, SAMH constantly developed its services to meet the relevant needs of our local community at all times. Today, SAMH has under its operation: St. Andrew's Autism Centre, St. Andrew's Community Hospital, St. Andrew's Nursing Home and St. Andrew's Senior Care.
