About Campaignends 31 Mar 2018, 11:59 PM
Singapore General Hospital as the largest acute care hospital in Singapore, serves people from all walks of life including those in the lower income bracket. Annually, our medical social workers help hundreds of needy patients, who very often have exhausted all options and are in need of financial assistance for their medical treatments.
Some needy patients just need that extra help with short-term subsistence support to buffer the reduction or loss of income consequent to the onset of a chronic or terminal illness, or a medical trauma. Some of these patients are sole breadwinners of their families, supporting young children and elderly family members. Others are lonely elderly patients or very young children born to low income families.
With the increasing number of needy patients and their families seeking assistance, at least $500,000 is required each year to ensure that the fund is sufficient for our needy patients usage.
Every dollar raised for SGH Needy Patients Fund provides interim support to our patients and their families who required assistance for medical consumables to ensure our patients are able to reintegrate back into the community with the necessary treatment and care. Your generous donation will provide patients in need with items such as ventilators for asthma patients and stoma bags that the patient will be grateful for.
All donations received will be managed by SingHealth Fund Limited , an Institution of Public Character (UEN no 201624016E)
