About Campaignends 30 Nov 2016, 11:59 PM
The DAC programme provides training and support in the development of daily living skills, recreational skills, vocational and community living skills. We believe that adults with autism can find meaningful engagement, hope and to some extent work, when they are supported and equipped with these skills. With greater independence and adaptability, we hope that our adult clients are more able to navigate safely in the community and enjoy a better quality of life.

About the Charity
Out of passion to care for the physical, emotional and social well-being of the community, the St. Andrew's Medical Mission was founded in 1913 by Dr. Charlotte Ferguson-Davie, the wife of the first Anglican Bishop of Singapore who was also a medical doctor herself. Seeing the plight of the local women and children of that time and the lack of medical services for them, Dr. Ferguson-Davie set up a dispensary along Bencoolen Street for the destitute women and children. The Medical Mission continued to meet the locals' needs and thus led to the opening of more dispensaries and eventually, St. Andrew's Mission Hospital in 1923 and St. Andrew's Orthopaedic Hospital in 1939. Working closely with the Government, SAMH constantly developed its services to meet the relevant needs of our local community at all times. Today, SAMH has under its operation: St. Andrew's Autism Centre, St. Andrew's Community Hospital, St. Andrew's Nursing Home and St. Andrew's Senior Care.
