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. Our Charity turns 25 in 2020, this is made possible with the community's effort and continuous support.

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.

Our Programmes

Some of the programmes we run are:

HELP (Helping ElderLy Patients) Programme
Helps elderly needy patients with their medical needs - diapers, wound dressing, nutrition, dialysis, mobility aids, vision and hearing problems, etc.

Diabetes Care Programme (DCP)
The DCP helps needy patients with diabetes self-manage and keep their conditions under control. This is critical as it would delay other diabetes-related complications. The Fund helps to provide medical subsidies and financial aid for wound care consumables, insulin syringes, test strips and meters for home blood glucose monitoring.

MovE (Moving with Ease) Programme
Many of our patients, especially the elderly, face mobility challenges and require assistance to cope with them. Help is given through the provision of wheelchairs, walking aids and prosthesis. The MovE Programme also provides taxi transport services so that the patients, especially those who are immobile, are able to visit the hospital for their medical appointments.
