St Andrew's Junior College (SAJC) Saints Sports Club is raising funds in support of the Day Activity Centre (DAC) at St. Andrew's Autism Centre (SAAC). This is held in conjunction with SAJC Cross Country, which will be held on 2 March. SAJC is celebrating 40th Anniversary and the Cross-Country will be held at Punggol Promenade. Since 2013, SAJC has been raising funds for SAAC with the aim of helping the DAC to continue providing training and support in the development of daily living skills, recreational skills, vocational and community living skills for adults with autism. Every little contribution can make a difference in the lives of the people with Autism. Donations will close on the day after SAJC Cross Country.

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.
