Walking Warriors will come together to clock a total of 1000km in support of the HomeCare Assist (HCA) Fund and we hope to raise $1,000 for HCA to provide interim assistance to needy patients with chronic illnesses or conditions to ensure that they have the means to continue to be cared for in their own homes after discharge from Changi General Hospital (CGH).
Illness and disability are often accompanied by psychological and social problems. Some patients will require psychological support and assistance to help them cope with their medical conditions and related psychosocial problems. The Department of Medical Social Services at Changi General Hospital, Singapore helps patients to access appropriate resources in the community to help them overcome practical problems such as finances, employment, and home care needs.
Your gift will:
- Reduce the chances of their health deteriorating and re-admission; ensuring they can recover within the community with ease
- Alleviate the financial burden on the needy patients and their families
