A Gift of Hope & Dignity

Mary (not her real name) is a 76 year-old widow who has been left to fend for herself. Two of her sons had passed away from poor health, while two other estranged sons refuse to support their mother. Mary lived alone until she moved to the senior Group Home in Sengkang two years ago.

When Mary had to be warded at Sengkang Community Hospital (SKCH) for amputation wound care and rehabilitation, she found herself unable to return to the Home as she could not afford the mandatory pull-up diapers. The aid she received from the Silver Support Scheme was not sufficient for this.

The SCH Health Fund was set up to help needy patients like Mary. With assistance from the SCH Health Fund, Mary was able to obtain a three-month supply of pull-up diapers before longer term aid steps in. To her, the diapers were not just a means to return home to a sense of familiarity but also a gift of independence and dignity.

There are more patients like Mary, especially those from lower income groups, who require financial support to help them get back on track and where they need to be.

With the donations from generous donors, we can continue to support them in their time of need and shape the way we deliver care to our patients.
