Recently, I was at a food center and I was having my lunch. An old lady came to clean my table. She was frail. Her hands shook, holding the cloth that was to wipe my table. Despite all these, she wore a smile so bright - you know it is from the heart. She is probably in her mid 60s. I observed her. After my lunch, I ushered her over. She thought I needed her service to clean my table. As her shaking hands reached out for the table, my hands reached for hers. I pressed a $10 note into her palm.”

To JT, nothing is better than to direct his birthday gifts in the form of donations to the Helping Elderly Patients Programme (HELP). Donate via giving.sg to support JT’s campaign!

Donate today!

PS: JT will match dollar-for-dollar (up to $5,000) for the donations.





On the weekend of 16 – 18 Apr 2021, Italian luxury label TOD’s held their annual Charity Shopping Weekend to raise funds for the Helping Elderly Patients Programme (HELP) under the Charity. 2021 marks the 7th year of partnership with TOD’S and we would like to express our deepest gratitude to TOD’S for their continuous support.

Every Lunar New Year, schools from all over Singapore participate in our campaign; ‘Project Hongbao’. Students not only get the chance to design and colour their own red packet, but also celebrate this festival through giving back in the form of a kind donation, as well as a message of well wishes to our beneficiaries.

The Hongbao project is for helping people. I like helping people"

– Taya Belle Bar Menashe, White Lodge kindergarten student at Phoenix Park

When TTSH Community Fund approached White Lodge Kindergarten and Pre-School to participate in ‘Project Hongbao’, they did not hesitate. After seeing especially, the needy, sick and elderly lives affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, they saw a cause that was important to them and felt like this their chance to help the community in their own way. White Lodge Kindergarten and Pre-School were especially keen on TTSH Community Fund’s focus on supporting healthcare research, stating this to be an important lesson at a preschool level.

As part of their own Chinese New Year celebration at their school, Project Hongbao was a great addition, providing the opportunity for the students to experience giving back in a creative and fun way. This fell in line with their belief in Singapore’s many and mixed cultures and traditions as a unique and special way of giving back and being there for one another.

The project was very well received within the school community by the parents and students alike, and everyone took pride in the opportunity to collaborate with TTSH Community Fund this year. The children thoroughly enjoyed decorating and filling up a Hongbao as a token of good wishes, reflected by their wonderful submission and generous donations.

We would like to say a big thank you to White Lodge Kindergarten and Pre-School for their initiative, compassion, and enthusiasm in this campaign. We very much hope to continue sharing this experience for the coming years!

Keep a lookout for more updates and for future campaigns and events!

What was the experience like for Mulberry Learning @ Tanjong Pagar?

Mulberry-Learning-Centre.jpg

It is not easy to inculcate the values of caring and sharing among children below 7 years but Mulberry Learning @ Tanjong Pagar readily took up the challenge through participating in Project Hongbao. Teachers at the centre shared videos and arranged picture talks in class to help children understand the plight of the less fortunate, as well as the challenges faced by the elderly and the less-privileged.

The children then decorated their red packets before they penned down their well wishes to the beneficiaries and staff at TTSH Community Fund. As some of the children were only 18 months old, the objective of Project Hongbao may be hard to grasp. This is where the parents come in to share their inputs and help their children deepen their understanding on helping others.

Mulberry Learning Centre adopts the Habits of MindTM Curriculum where little Mulberrians are constantly exposed to activities and social stories involving empathy. Project Hongbao then allowed the children to look at the world through the eyes of gratitude and help them better learn and understand how their collective action can make a positive difference in the lives of those in need.

Making Chinese Hongbao was fun! We decorated our red packets and my mummy helped me to put in some money to help more people.”

In January 2020, Hwa Chong Institution reached out to TTSH CF to organize a Chinese Calligraphy fundraiser at the atrium of the hospital. Both TTSH staff and members of the public can purchase Chinese calligraphy couplets that will be written right at the booths by the students to support the students’ passion and our Charity. TTSH CF certainly look forward to future fundraiser collaborations such as this.


TTSH-Charity-Heritage-Walk-2019.jpg

TTSH Charity Heritage Walk 2019: Tan Tock Seng's Journey is TTSH Community Fund's inaugural heritage walk for charity.

In 1844, Mr Tan Tock Seng donated 7,000 Spanish dollars to build the Pauper's Hospital at Pearl's Hill. Through various heritage sites along the 8km trail starting from Pearl's Hill to present day TTSH at Novena, participants will be learning about Mr Tan's life and his contributions to early Singapore. The Charity Heritage Walk 2019 aims to bring greater awareness of Singapore's rich history and how early merchants who made good also made great efforts to better the lives of our forefathers, who were in turn able to contribute to Singapore today.

This event commemorated the hospital's 175th Anniversary and 200 years of Singapore story. The walk has been endorsed by the Singapore Bicentennial Office as part of the Singapore's Bicentennial Commemoration.

Beyond nostalgia, this walk also managed to raise $1 million for the TTSH Community fund, which supports needy patients with out-of-pocket expenses, as well as healthcare research, training and education.
