For the last 20 years, Patient Care Centre (PCC) has been fighting stigma and caring for those with HIV/AIDS.
This year, our biennial charity dinner hopes to raise funds for needy patients living with HIV/AIDS.
Funds from this dinner will go towards:
- Low-income patients who are unable to afford necessary medication and are ineligible for subsidies.
- Patients who are unable to afford essential medical care such as laboratory investigations.
- Needy patients and their families who need help with basic food items.
- Supporting our needy patient through red ribbon project, which help them build their self-confidence and esteem through diversional therapy, equipping them with skills to assist them to paid employment in society.
- Patient support group programs, helping patients by providing them basic knowledge of HIV/AID as well as emotional support. The programs hope to empower patients with healthy coping methods through peer support and sharing.
The event will be held on Saturday, 9 December 2017, 7pm-10pm at The Joyden Hall, Bugis+ .

1844. Merchant Tan Tock Seng, together with a group of friends donated a sum of 7000 Spanish dollars to build the Paupers' Hospital for the poor sick in the community. In keeping with this Legacy of Giving, Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH) set up the TTSH Community Fund in August 1995 to improve the quality of life of our less fortunate patients.
Today, the Fund runs over 100 patient-centred programs, disbursing more than $2 million each year for its activities. We support over 2,500 needy patient cases, especially the elderly and those who fall between the gaps of the system, and are unable to receive help from traditional charitable agencies. Our charity is unique in that it centres on helping those who cannot or do not receive adequate or timely help in the community.
It provides timely help to needy patients and their families with their out-of-pocket medical expenses, vis a vis, non-standard medication, costly breathing equipment so that patients can go home, mobility aids, nutrition and home-based community rehabilitation programmes and many other areas of needs.
