About the walk:
In 1844, Mr Tan Tock Seng donated 7,000 Spanish dollars to build the Pauper's Hospital at Pearl's Hill. Through various heritage sites along the trail starting from Pearl's Hill to present day TTSH at Novena, participants will learn about Mr Tan's life and his contributions to early Singapore. We hope to bring greater awareness of Singapore's rich history and how early merchants who made good also made great efforts to better the lives of our forefathers, who were in turn able to contribute to Singapore today.

About The Charity

In keeping with Mr Tan Tock Seng's Legacy of Giving, Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH) set up its charity arm, TTSH Community Fund, in August 1995 to improve the quality of life of our patients and the community.

Today, our Charity runs more than 100 patient-centred programmes, disbursing more than $2 million each year for the Charity's activities. We support over 2,500 needy patient cases, especially the elderly and those who fall through the cracks of the system, and those who are unable to receive help from traditional charitable agencies.

From expensive non-standard medication and breathing equipment to mobility aids, community rehabilitation programmes, and even dentures to help them eat better, TTSH Community Fund helps needy patients to gain greater independence, improve their quality of life and enable them to integrate back into the community. The Fund also supports healthcare research, innovation, and training for our staff and the community to deliver better patient care.

Our Charity runs entirely on public donations. Every dollar to the Charity goes directly to support our activities. The TTSH Community Fund is a registered charity with IPC status.
