Mr Edwin Rozario, Mdm Koh and Mdm Phang are some of the regular seniors in their 60s and 70s whom our SATA CommHealth doctors have seen via the Doctors-On-Wheels (DOW) community service, an initiative started since 2007.

A lot of elderly find challenges to go to GP clinics for their medical needs and they do face financial difficulties to pay for doctors' consultations and medication. Because of this, their conditions deteriorate, leaving them in a dire situation.

The mission of Doctors-On-Wheels is to provide subsidised or free medical treatment to the disadvantaged elderly and frail in the community or those who, because of lack of means, are unable to seek professional medical care. Our team of a doctor and nurses goes around the community, offering treatment for acute medical problems, monitoring of chronic ailments, and providing health education during on-site visits. This service has been on-going and the DOW team visits the various senior activity centres for four days a week.

With your kind donation, we will be able to continue and sustain this service initiative to many needy patients in the community. Lend a helping hand to someone who needs it now. All these little charitable efforts will warm the hearts of the frail and needy, bringing them peace and comfort where they needed the most.

Let's help build a healthier community together!

Thank you. Your donations will be used to fund this programme as well as our other programmes for the needy and seniors.

About the Charity

Promoting Lifelong Health, Serving the Community

SATA CommHealth was established in 1947 as a charity healthcare organisation fighting against tuberculosis in the early days.

The organisation has since evolved to become a comprehensive healthcare provider serving the public and corporate while having a charity arm to focus on the healthcare needs in the community, especially the needy and the disadvantaged elderly.

With the COVID-19 evolving, more resources are required to care and serve the underprivileged for their medical and social needs, while fulfilling our prime duties as Public Health Preparedness Clinics (PHPC) supporting MOH, in managing patients with acute respiratory infection (ARI) symptoms at all our medical centres.

As part of the Ministry's on-going efforts to help contain this outbreak, our mobile x-ray buses with a pool of Radiographers been deployed at Ng Teng Fong General Hospital (NTFGH) and Singapore Expo to help screen patients suspected of COVID-19 infection in collaboration with NTFGH-MINDEF and Woodlands Health Campus (WHC) respectively.

We are HERE TO CARE for the Community!
