No stranger to philanthropy, Dr Tan Lai Yong, who spent 14 years in Yunnan as a "barefoot doctor" providing healthcare to the local poor and training local doctors, continues to touch lives at home.

Dr Tan, who is Adjunct Assoc Professor at College of Alice & Peter Tan (NUS), teaches classes such as, "Hidden Communities in Singapore", "Medicine for the Marginalised" and "[email protected] Fringe".

As thanksgiving to the Lord for good health, Dr Tan is taking part in the Triathlon (at a leisurely slow pace) on 4 Sept at East Coast Park to raise funds for St Luke's Hospital (SLH).

As part of his 61st birthday celebration, Dr Tan has dedicated the Triathlon effort to support the Care and Counselling Fund at the SLH.

Please consider contributing. Your contribution will encourage the staff at SLH as they press on to care for our senior citizens. No amount is too small. You could send $10 or $61 or $610 or more to support the work at SLH.

Donations are eligible for 250% tax deduction and will be matched dollar for dollar by the government's Community Silver Trust.

For enquiries, email [email protected]

About the Charity

St Luke's Hospital, named after the patron saint of the medical profession, was the first hospital in Singapore dedicated to the elderly sick.

We have expanded our services beyond the elderly to enrich more lives. An Institution of a Public Character, we care for 2,300 inpatients and 3,500 outpatients each year, regardless of race, language or religion. As illnesses may be long and chronic, we care holistically for patients' physical, emotional and psychosocial well-being.

Impactful and innovative in transforming community care, we were the first recipient of the President's Award for Social Impact (2012), and the first community hospital to receive the National Healthcare Innovation and Productivity Medal (National University Hospital - St Luke's Hospital Integrated Care Path, 2016). We topped the Community Hospital Patient Experience Survey in 2018.
