TTSH Community Fund is organising a coffee table book project '#WeLoveSingaporeHawkers' to raise funds for our Help Me Go Home Programme that subsidises the high cost of breathing machines which can cost anywhere between $6,000 and $22,000.

Patients under this programme typically have serious conditions such as spinal cord injuries, muscular dystrophy or stroke. Often, many patients are bedbound and have difficulty breathing, speaking or even coughing and they are fully dependent on the breathing equipment.

#WeLoveSingaporeHawkers is a collection of photo essays, anecdotes, illustrations and interviews contributed by well-known writers and renowned photographers and illustrators. It will be an enlightening and interesting read for both Singaporean as well as international readers and will help everyone better appreciate hawkers and their role in Singaporeans' way of life.

The book will be given as a token of appreciation to donors who contribute $200 and above to this project. If you wish to receive a copy of the book, please fill in your contact details and mailing address when making a donation on Giving.sg.

About the Charity

In keeping with Mr Tan Tock Seng's Legacy of Giving, Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH) set up its charity arm, TTSH Community Fund, in August 1995 to improve the quality of life of our patients and the community.

Every year, our Charity disburses more than $2 million for our patient-centred programmes, and to support healthcare research, innovation and training for our staff and the community, to deliver better patient care.

From expensive non-standard medication and breathing equipment to mobility aids, community rehabilitation programmes, and even dentures to help them eat better, TTSH Community Fund helps needy patients with their out-of-pocket medical expenses so that they can gain greater independence, improve their quality of life and enable them to integrate back into the community.

Our Charity runs entirely on public donations. Every dollar to the Charity goes directly to support our activities. TTSH Community Fund is a registered charity with IPC status.
