Our Campaign Storyends 31 Mar 2023, 11:59 PM
I have been a nurse at Assisi Hospice for over 10 years. I am privileged to journey and care for the patients here when they are at their most vulnerable stage of life.
Nursing is a very meaningful vocation for me and I want to take this opportunity to give back to the community and raise funds for the Assisi patients with this climb.
This is my second time that I am doing a charity hike.
This time, I am going to climb Jade Mountain (Yushan) in Taiwan from March 16 to March 18 2023. This is the highest mountain in Taiwan with an elevation of 3,952 meters.
To date, I have done 3 consecutive hikes.
1) Mount Guiting-Guiting (one of the most difficult mountains to climb in Philippines)
2) Mount Apo (one of the highest mountain in Philippines) and
3) Mount Kinabalu (the highest in Borneo and Malaysia).
I have been training for this climb on my off days at MacRitchie and Bukit Timah. I want to bring our Assisi banner to the Jade Mountain Peak and wave the flag proudly showing my love for my work here at Assisi Hospice.
Please support and make a contribution to my efforts to raise funds for our patients.
Together let us make every life matters and every moment counts.
Thank you everyone for your support. I have reached the summit this morning at 5 am. It was so cold with the temperature 8 degrees below 0. I feel so blessed to be here and help raise funds for our patients.
About The Charity
Journey with us to support our needy patients with terminal illness and their caregivers. Assisi Hospice provides palliative care for patients and families that preserves their dignity and quality of life. Patients of any race, faith and financial position are cared for by our team of specialist doctors, nurses, allied health and pastoral care professionals. When faced with life limiting illnesses, our patients receive medical care, as well as psychosocial, emotional and spiritual care.
We provide care for patients across the continuum of Home Care, Inpatient and Day Care. This allows patients and family members to journey with a clinical team they are familiar with, and to receive care in the way that they need. Our six-storey purpose-built hospice provides a homely ambience with cosy spaces for patients and their loved ones. With 85 Inpatient beds, including specialised wards for Dementia Palliative Care and Paediatric Palliative Care, a Day Care Centre and the outreach of our Home Care team, we serve more than 2,000 patients a year.
Founded in 1969 by the Sisters of the Franciscan Missionaries of the Divine Motherhood (FMDM), we are a charity supported by donors, volunteers and corporate organisations who journey with us in our cause.
