Our Campaign Story

ends 31 Mar 2022, 11:59 PM

I would like to just take this time to deeply thank SGH for taking care of my dad till his final breath.

He may have benefitted directly or indirectly from the care, support and undeniable effort SGH have shown him but in memory of my dad in his final days what they were able to provide is summed up in one word - HOPE.

To express my gratitude, I would like to raise funds for patients in need supported by SGH Needy Patients Fund. This fund helps patients who have undergone means-testing with basic and life-saving needs such as dialysis, equipment, consumables and treatments not covered by prevailing subsidy schemes.

This is just my smallest way to carry on the hope they gave me and my family. Thank you so much for your generous support.

About Campaign

Illness does not discriminate. Will you help patients like Mr Yuan who could not pay for his medical treatment?

Mr Yuan F.M. has been struggling with multiple chronic illnesses including diabetes, high blood pressure and psoriasis for over 10 years. When he suffered a stroke in 2014, he could not work. But his medical bills only kept increasing with his failing health.

"I'm truly grateful to the donors of the SGH Needy Patients Fund. If not for their help, I would not be able to afford my medication or treatments."

- Mr Yuan F M, 62 years old

There are many Mr Yuans among us. At Singapore General Hospital, the largest and oldest hospital in Singapore, we serve over 1 million patients from all walks of life every year.

Every year, at least 2000 needy patients -more than 97% of them with per capita income of $800 and less- need your help to pay for life-saving care and treatment like interim dialysis and milk feeds which are not covered by existing schemes like Medifund.

Will you help one patient in need receive critical medical care in a timely manner today?

Your kindness will bring hope and cheer to patients and their families especially during their most difficult times. 100% of your gift will go towards helping needy patients. There is no amount that is too small.

All eligible donations will enjoy 250% tax deductions. The donation will be automatically included in the donor's IRAS tax assessment. If you need a hardcopy receipt please contact [email protected]
