Whether we live to eat or eat to live, most of us are fortunate to be able to afford three or more meals (and perhaps desserts) a day.

If you spare just the price of one meal, or simply skip that overrated dessert, and donate the equivalent to TTSH Community Fund, you are helping to provide timely assistance to needy elderly patients.

Our patients may need assistive aids such as breathing equipment and wheelchairs, interim dialysis treatments, non-standard medication, home-based therapy, nutritional supplements to help them control their condition or recover. Others may need dentures so that they can take their daily meals or hearing aids so they can hear their loved ones. All these out-of-pocket expenses are not subsidised.

Your donation will help ease the financial burden and improve their quality of life.

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.
