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) Programme of All-inclusive Care for the Terminally-ill (PACT) (see description below); and
2) Help Me Go Home programme (visit: http://bit.ly/2wywbAc)

All donations raised from this campaign page will be dedicated towards the PACT Fund.

Programme of All-inclusive Care for the Terminally-ill (PACT) supports and care for the terminally ill patients and their families. Your donations will help support the following:

1. Financial support to facilitate care of needy patients and families in the community
e.g. Rental of breathing ventilator, and ambulance transport fees for terminal discharge (whereby death is expected to occur within 48 hours), helping needy patients obtain interim funding when their families are unable to provide adequate funds etc

2. Training and counselling for patients and caregivers and volunteers
e.g. Providing palliative care - related training, setting up/maintaining support groups. Providing healing art therapy for patients and caregivers

3. Education to the public, healthcare professionals and volunteers on issues pertinent to the care of those with advanced illnesses
e.g. Public forums and workshops

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.
