Thank you for helping us reach our goal!

Thanks to our incredible community of supporters, we surpassed our goal of $30,000 to help our Special Needs families tide through this period of hardship.

With your generous support, we will provide our needy families with
1. Essential living expenses, e.g. food and groceries, utility and conservancy charges
2. Covid-19 protection essentials such as face masks and hand sanitisers
3. Health and disability related expenses, e.g. medical bills and related transportation costs
4. School and programme fees

More updates on how we are using your generous donations to come!

While 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.

Help our beneficiaries to continue to achieve their goals of:
1. Improving employability through vocational training
2. Becoming an active and valued member of the community
3. Maximising their potential in sports, expressive arts and other interest areas

Heartfelt thanks to all who continually support the work of SAAC in so many ways, and especially to our generous donors who helped us reach our fundraising goal. You are a part of something really special, you are a part of our community. And you make everything we do possible.

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.
