About Campaign

A lot of elderly find challenges to go to GP clinics for their medical needs and some of them face financial difficulties to pay for doctors' consultations and medication. Because of this, their conditions deteriorate, leaving them in a dire situation.

Our Doctors-On-Wheels (DOW) programme, started since 2007, is a community initiative that provides free and subsidised treatment to needy elderly beneficiaries living in 1, 2 and 3-room HDB flats.

The DOW Team, which consists of a doctor and nurses, travel from a specially equipped van, which brings the necessary equipment and medication to different parts of Singapore, where these beneficiaries reside.

The DOW programme operates every week, travelling to Senior Activity Centres to treat acute and chronic ailments, as well as provide some health education to the needy elderly in the community.

SATA CommHealth is a registered charity healthcare organisation and has been actively involved in providing medical assistance to needy households, especially seniors and the vulnerable in the community.

We are extending our medical service to as many elderly and needy as we can, of which the costs are absorbed via our revenues from medical centres, as well as donation funds by kind donors.

Your donations will be used to fund this programme as well as other SATA CommHealth's programmes for the needy and seniors.
