Our Campaign Story

ends 12 Jul 2021, 11:59 PM

Will you love him, comfort him, honor and keep him, in sickness and in health?

Like many elderly couples, this loving pair have exchanged wedding vows many years ago. Mr Chew is now 67 years old. His wife is the main caregiver but is unable to take care of him as she now suffers from constant knee pain, and had recovered from breast cancer previously.

This touching story is heart-wrenching to many of us but there are many more out there like them. The elderly couples rely on each other to get them through the daily activities like bathing, toileting etc. They worry about the day when they will have to be separated, with one of them being admitted to a nursing home. Usually, when one of them is hospitalized, there is no one to take care of the remaining one.

SATA CommHealth's Homecare staff came in to help bathe and talk to him so that he does not feel helpless or lonely. We are able to help them because of your donations. Your donations will be used to fund our Homecare Programme as well as other SATA CommHealth's community programmes for the seniors and vulnerable.

About The Charity

SATA CommHealth was established in 1947. As an IPC charity, we are Here To Care for the health of seniors and the vulnerable in the community. We serve around 200,000 patients in the medical centres every year, and the proceeds are channelled to help fund our community services.

Our beneficiaries are served through community events, subsidised care at our medical centres as well as home and centre-based services which include homecare, doctors-on-wheels, day rehabilitation centres and Fernvale Community Hub.

We were awarded the Charity Governance Award (Large Charities category) in 2018. For three consecutive years, we were also awarded the Charity Transparency Award by the Charity Council for its exemplary disclosure practices.

We continue to fight the COVID-19 pandemic, supporting MOH and community partners, in various areas such as providing vaccinations via our Mobile Vaccination Teams and Vaccination Centre, administering ART and PCR swabs and managing patients in our Public Health Preparedness Clinics.
