About The Charity
The Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) Care Fund aims to support SAF servicemen with severe disabilities due to their military service. The Fund complements the Ministry of Defence's (MINDEF) existing compensation and welfare frameworks by providing an avenue for members of the public to make contributions to and show their support for such servicemen.
Over and above the existing frameworks, the SAF Care Fund provides additional financial support to severely disabled servicemen who require long term care and support. The SAF Care Fund will rely on monies donated by the public and MINDEF will provide a one-for-one matching grant.
