The Gobi March for TTSH Community Fund is an initiative by Ray Loh, Dominic Tung & Lee Sow Fong of Tan Tock Seng Hospital.

As they journey through the fully self-supported 7 day 250km Gobi March (Mongolia) footrace, the team hopes to raise funds for two programmes under the TTSH Community Fund:
1) Help Me Go Home programme (see description below); and
2) Programme of All-inclusive Care for the Terminally-ill (PACT) (visit: http://bit.ly/2Kda18q)

All donations raised from this campaign page will be dedicated towards the Help Me Go Home programme.

Patients who need breathing machines to stay alive would love to return home to their loved ones but they cannot afford the high costs. The Help Me Go Home programme helps to alleviate their financial burdens so that they can go home to their families.

Your donations will help support the following:

1. Cost of respiratory associated equipment (e.g. ventilators, cough assist machines, etc) and its consumables
2. Cost of non-respiratory associated equipment and consumables (e.g. hospital bed, pressure relieve mattress, wheelchair, milk feeds, diapers, etc)
3. Cost of preventive maintenance or parts replacement of equipment

About NPO

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.
