1844. Merchant Tan Tock Seng, together with a group of friends donated a sum of 7000 Spanish dollars to build the Paupers' Hospital for the poor sick in the community. In keeping with this Legacy of Giving, Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH) set up the TTSH Community Fund in August 1995 to improve the quality of life of our less fortunate patients.
Today, the Fund runs over 100 patient-centred programs, disbursing more than $2 million each year for its activities. We support over 2,500 needy patient cases, especially the elderly and those who fall between the gaps of the system, and are unable to receive help from traditional charitable agencies. Our charity is unique in that it centres on helping those who cannot or do not receive adequate or timely help in the community.
It provides timely help to needy patients and their families with their out-of-pocket medical expenses, vis a vis, non-standard medication, costly breathing equipment so that patients can go home, mobility aids, nutrition and home-based community rehabilitation programmes and many other areas of needs.
Please visit www.ttsh.com.sg/ttshcf/ for more information.
Some of the programmes we run are:
HELP (Helping ElderLy Patients) Program Helps elderly needy patients with their medical needs - diapers, wound dressing, nutrition, dialysis, mobility aids, vision and hearing problems, etc.
Diabetes Care Programme (DCP) The DCP helps needy patients with diabetes self-manage and keep their conditions under control. This is critical as it would delay other diabetes-related complications. The Fund helps to provide medical subsidies and financial aid for wound care consumables, insulin syringes, test strips and meters for home blood glucose monitoring.
MovE (Moving with Ease) Programme Many of our patients, especially the elderly, face mobility challenges and require assistance to cope with them. Help is given through the provision of wheelchairs, walking aids and prosthesis. The MovE Programme also provides taxi transport services so that the patients, especially those who are immobile, are able to visit the hospital for their medical appointments.
