Throughout her life, Ms Teresa Hsu (1898-2011) practised loving-kindness towards her fellow human beings. She gave willingly and tirelessly in a lifelong dedication to the care of those who are poor, needy, aged and sick. They are mostly without family or friends.
Established in 1968, SAS is one of the oldest nursing homes in Singapore, with a demonstrated history of supporting the less privileged elderly for 53 years. The Home is anchored with Matron Hsu's values of loving- kindness and compassion.
As a believer of lifelong learning, she embarked on her professional training as a nurse at 47. At age 69, she then picked up Yoga, practised and taught Yoga to promote health and wellness.
Your support will enable the Home to cope with the escalating cost of operations and continue the good works passed down by Ms Teresa Hsu in helping the needy elderly.
To commemorate Ms Teresa Hsu's legacy of compassionate giving and her spirit of lifelong learning, volunteers of SAS have also gathered to organize a series of talks called #talkforfund.
We are also pleased to extend an invitation to all of you to join us in the first SAS #talkforfund series, Design Your Life 3.0.
Second Talk on 29 Sep 2021: https://reinventing-a-second-act.eventbrite.sg
We look forward to getting to know you personally at the talk.
