Our Campaign Story

ends 31 Jul 2021, 11:59 PM

Trying something different for my birthday this year to support a cause that is dear to me. Typically when people embark on a cause, there is a passionate or personal story behind it. For me, I've been fortunate to come across great causes in my schooling years which have left a great impression on me. Palliative care is one of them. Quality of life at the end of life was what I explored into for my final year project, and since then, palliative care has held a special place in my heart. I have tried volunteering short-term before, but have been unable to do so long-term due to other commitments. But I see the work that is done in this field is certainly heartwarming and meaningful. So what better way to try a campaign like this than to support a cause that I've seen first hand how impactful it is. Let's see how far we can go :)

About The Charity

HCA Hospice Care (HCA) is Singapore's largest home hospice provider and has been a registered charity since 1989. The organisation provides comfort and support to patients with life-limiting illnesses regardless of age, religion, ethnicity, nationality and financial status.

We understand the medical and psychological needs of patients, caregivers and their families. By managing our patients pain and other symptoms with specialised care and support, we enable them to spend their last days at home, in comfort and dignity, with their families and loved ones.

Additionally, we care for the caregivers by providing them with psychosocial support, practical training, and advice at all hours with our 24/7 hotline.

As all our services including home hospice service for adults are provided free-of-charge to all patients under our care, we rely on donations to support what we believe is a basic right: to die with dignity.

With your contribution and commitment to helping us, we are confident of achieving our goal to adding life to the days of patients with life-limiting illnesses.
