Our Campaign Story

ends 31 Jul 2021, 11:59 PM

Dear donors, thank you, sincerely! We could not have helped our SAAC Families without you!

You have made an incredible impact. In 2020, over $50,000 of the funds raised were disbursed to as many as 48 of our beneficiaries and their families who are adversely impacted by COVID-19.

Thanks to you, donors, who chose to give unreservedly, they found the silver lining amidst the pandemic crisis.

In times like these, hope can be a powerful source of reassurance.

Even as we strive to help our SAAC Families through the challenges of COVID-19, we must continue to plan ahead to provide quality education and training for our 411 students, clients and residents in our care - improving employability through vocational training, and helping them be an active and valued member of the community.

With your continued support and generosity, many of our beneficiaries and their families in need can continue to be helped through the SAAC Hardship - COVID Assistance Fund with:
1. Essential living expenses, e.g. food and groceries and utility
2. Health and disability-related expenses, e.g. medical bills and transportation costs
3. School and programme fees
4. COVID-19 protection essentials such as face masks and hand sanitisers

Thank you for choosing to continue to Stand United with our beneficiaries on the autism spectrum, and their families.

About The Charity

Out of passion to care for the physical, emotional and social well-being of the community, the St. Andrew's Medical Mission was founded in 1913 by Dr. Charlotte Ferguson-Davie, the wife of the first Anglican Bishop of Singapore who was also a medical doctor herself. Seeing the plight of the local women and children of that time and the lack of medical services for them, Dr. Ferguson-Davie set up a dispensary along Bencoolen Street for the destitute women and children. The Medical Mission continued to meet the locals' needs and thus led to the opening of more dispensaries and eventually, St. Andrew's Mission Hospital in 1923 and St. Andrew's Orthopaedic Hospital in 1939.

Working closely with the Government, SAMH constantly developed its services to meet the relevant needs of our local community at all times. Today, SAMH has under its operation: St. Andrew's Autism Centre, St. Andrew's Community Hospital, St. Andrew's Nursing Home and St. Andrew's Senior Care.
