Join me in supporting the Box of Smiles Fundraiser which aims to raise money to help needy patients get the medical help they need. And if each of us donate $10 to this cause, we can make a big difference together! So let's do our part this Christmas and bring more smiles to our loving community.
This holiday season, TTSH Community Fund hopes to bring smiles to needy patients!
While most of us are fortunate to celebrate the festive season with good health, many of our needy patients spend their Christmas seeking the medical care they need. These patients are mostly elderly who fall through the cracks of the system and are unable to receive help from traditional charitable agencies.
Each year, the fund actively supports over 2,500 needy patient cases, and it is because of kind donors like yourself that they are able to get the medical help they need.
Here's how you can help:
1. Donate to the BOX OF SMILES fundraising campaign. AND/OR
2. Start your own BOX OF SMILES by sending your Name with the email titled 'I want a Box Of Smiles!' to [email protected] You will then receive an email with easy steps to follow. Once completed, you can begin asking your friends & families to join in the good cause.
Any donation, large or small, will make this Christmas special for the needy patients. All donations will go towards the General Needy Patient Fund under TTSH Community Fund.
On behalf of our needy patients and their families, we thank you for your kind support, and we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
For any queries, feel free to contact us at 6357 2497 or [email protected]
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.
