Our Campaign Story

ends 31 Oct 2022, 11:59 PM

Our clients from SAAC's Day Activity Centre are training hard for an upcoming fundraising cycling event on 24th September. The event is part of Parkway East Hospital's 80th anniversary celebrations.

Cycling long distance is no small feat for some persons with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) as they may grapple with balance, body coordination, visual-motor control and other mobility skills.

With the guidance and encouragement from their coaches and caregivers, the clients aim to cycle either 10km or 20km. Those who are unable to cycle but still wish to participate in the event will either be riding on buddy bikes with their coaches or walking the route.

We hope you will cheer them on by registering for the event at https://reg.eventnook.com/event/pehcyclingforautism or show your support by making a donation.

Persons with autism need our care and support to lead dignified and meaningful lives. It is also important that they access education, training and services. Your gift today will help us at St. Andrew's Autism Centre (SAAC) to continue to enrich the lives of the students and adult clients with moderate to severe autism.

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, St. Andrew's Senior Care, St. Andrew's Migrant Worker Medical Centre, St. Andrew's Mission School and St. Andrew's Mission Hospital Clinic.
