How Your Donation Makes a Difference

About Us

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.

Our Programmes

Some of the programmes we run are:

HELP (Helping ElderLy Patients) Programme
Our Charity supports needy elderly patients who have little/no savings and limited/no family support with their out-of-pocket, unsubsidised medical expenses such as interim dialysis, milk feeds, diapers, wheelchairs, etc.

Programme for All Inclusive Care for the Terminally Ill
PACT was set up to provide support and care for terminally ill patients and their families by providing interim funding for the expenses needed to care for patients in their home or in the community. It also helps to pay for meaningful activities aimed at improving the quality of life of patients, e.g. art therapy and music therapy sessions for the palliative care patients in TTSH.

Community Rehabilitation Programme
Rehabilitation is sometimes part of a patient's recovery process. CRP is a home rehabilitation service for low-income patients, particularly those with stroke and neurological conditions who are unable to access expensive rehabilitation facilities in the community. CRP helps patients improve their ability to move around and integrate back into society through home management and rehabilitation programmes tailored to their needs.
