About Campaignends 25 Dec 2016, 11:59 PM
While most of us are fortunate to celebrate the festive season with good health, many of our needy patients spend their Christmas seeking the medical care they need. These patients are mostly elderly who fall through the cracks of the system and are unable to receive help from traditional charitable agencies.
Each year, the fund actively supports over 2,500 needy patient cases, and it is because of kind donors like yourself that they are able to get the medical help they need.
Here's how you can help:
1. Donate to the BOX OF SMILES fundraising campaign. AND/OR
2. Start your own BOX OF SMILES by sending your Name with the email titled 'I want a Box Of Smiles!' to [email protected] You will then receive an email with easy steps to follow. Once completed, you can begin asking your friends & families to join in the good cause.
Any donation, large or small, will make this Christmas special for the needy patients. All donations will go towards the General Needy Patient Fund under TTSH Community Fund.
On behalf of our needy patients and their families, we thank you for your kind support, and we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
For any queries, feel free to contact us at 6357 2497 or [email protected]
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.
Today, our Charity runs more than 100 patient-centred programmes, disbursing more than $2 million each year for the Charity's activities. We support over 2,500 needy patient cases, especially the elderly and those who fall through the cracks of the system, and those who are unable to receive help from traditional charitable agencies.
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 to gain greater independence, improve their quality of life and enable them to integrate back into the community. The Fund also supports healthcare research, innovation, and training for our staff and the community to deliver better patient care.
Our Charity runs entirely on public donations. Every dollar to the Charity goes directly to support our activities. The TTSH Community Fund is a registered charity with IPC status.
2020 marks our Silver Jubilee, and TTSH Community Fund is grateful to our donors and well-wishers for their continued support, which has enabled us to serve our needy patients in the community these past 25 years.
