As the charity arm of a hospital, TTSH Community Fund supports needy patients with different medical conditions.

Some of the needy patients we help include those with:

  • Amyotropic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS);
  • Breathing difficulties due to Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA);
  • HIV / AIDS;
  • Mobility issues due to limp amputation, muscle degeneration etc;
  • Stroke and other neurological conditions;
  • Terminally illnesses such as end stage renal failure;
  • Transverse myelitis (neurological disorder that causes the inflammation of spinal cord).

Our Charity also supports needy patients with their nutritional needs, to help improve their medical condition, and ensure their overall well-being. Every year, our Charity disburses more than $2 million to help 2,500 needy patient cases, especially the elderly.

All monetary donations will enjoy 250% tax-exemption (applicable to Singapore tax-payers only). A tax-exemption receipt will be issued for donations of SGD$50.00 and above/upon request. Note: Please do not mail cash. You may contact us if you wish to make a cash donation in person.

Sometimes, rehabilitation is 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.

DAWN looks after the physical and emotional well-being of women living with HIV/AIDS, many of whom are breadwinners of their families. We also support needy pregnant HIV patients with their treatment that can help prevent their babies from being HIV positive. Aid is given through medication, nutrition and medical care programmes and services to help the women find strength in their lives and better cope with their conditions.

Upon discharge, many elderly patients require long term care and are unable to afford their ‘out-of-pocket’ unsubsidised medical expenses such as interim dialysis, milk feeds, diapers, wheelchairs, etc. Our Fund steps in to help them to ease their financial burden.

Patients who need breathing machines to stay alive would love to return home to their loved ones, but they cannot afford the high costs. We provide them with the expensive equipment so that they can go home to their families.

PACT was set up to provide support and care for terminally ill patients and their families. PACT helps patients and families by providing interim funding for the expenses needed to care for patients in their home or in the community. In addition, 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. Education and outreach to the public on matters surrounding the end-of-life are also made possible through the PACT fund.
