About Campaignends 31 Oct 2023, 11:59 PM
The Singapore Red Cross operates the Red Cross Home for the Disabled (RCHD), the nation's first residential home for disabled persons with severe physical and intellectual disabilities. Around the clock, we care for 100 disabled adults who are unable to care for themselves. With therapeutic and recreational activities that stimulate the residents' bodies and minds, we care for their physical and social well-being.
We also run a Day Activity Centre for the Disabled for those who require specialised care during the daytime, where we offer half-day or full-day programmes to maintain their social, physical and intellectual functioning.
The Fund will help:
- Out-of-Pocket Medical Fees for residents who are unable to cover expenses for their treatments/ hospitalisation/ rehabilitation. These include milk feeds, diapers, and nursing/dressing items.
- Defray residents' ambulance transport fees to Medical Appointments
- Targeted Therapy Activities and Social Outings and many more.
With your contribution, we aim to improve the quality of life for our beneficiaries and enable psychosocial support to caregivers, who need help with their loved ones' mounting medical fees, therapy and transport.
All donations will go directly to SRC and receive a 250% tax exemption.
