Our Campaign Story

ends 31 Dec 2020, 11:59 PM

We have a dream, one of lives transformed, and autism embraced. With the hope of enriching the lives of children, youths and adults on the autism spectrum, and their families in our care, we work earnestly and tirelessly towards this vision.

St. Andrew's Autism Centre (SAAC) believes that our students, clients, and residents deserve a life of quality, dignity and meaning, just like every one of us. In our work and service, we choose to focus on relating with, understanding better and collaborating with families to teach, train and support individuals on the autism spectrum in our care. All in the hope of shaping our aspirations into reality.

Autism is lifelong. At SAAC, we believe that no one should take that journey alone.

Your Gift of Hope will enable us to continue to walk alongside the families we support, and help our beneficiaries:
1. Be nurtured and developed holistically
2. Discover their potential through exposure to interest areas
3. Be cultivated and prepared for potential employability
4. Be encouraged to be an active community participant
5. Learn and adopt the spirit of giving back to society

Thank you for giving the Gift of Hope. Thank you for being a part of our journey in enabling those in our care to access our specialised school, Day Activity Centre and residential services.

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.
