TTSH Charity Heritage Walk 2019

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

This milestone event will commemorate the hospital’s 175th Anniversary, and mark 200 years of Singapore’s history. As such, this special event has been endorsed by the Singapore Bicentennial Office (SBO) as part of the Singapore Bicentennial Commemoration. All proceeds from the event will go to TTSH Community Fund for delivering and improving patient care.

About Tan Tock Seng’s Journey

This walk chronicles the life and contributions of Mr Tan Tock Seng, who donated 7,000 Spanish dollars to build the Pauper’s Hospital to help the poor sick in old Singapore at Pearl’s Hill in 1844.

Through heritage sites along the trail starting from Pearl’s Hill to present day TTSH at Novena, participants will learn about Mr Tan’s life and his contributions to early Singapore. We hope this will 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.

Yet ever since I began running my business, in my private heart I have always desired to be able to do something for abandoned and suffering people.”

- Mr Tan Tock Seng, 1845
