Jeraymin Yong, Senior Nurse Manager, Operating Theatres, SGH
In the 20 years that Jeraymin has been with SGH, volunteering
has always been close to her heart.
In 2011 and 2019, she took part in overseas missions
organised by SingHealth to Cambodia and Myanmar, lending her expertise as a
scrub nurse to surgeries and exchanging skills with the local doctors and
nurses in the military hospitals. Jeraymin also shared her knowledge with the
nurses at Calmette Hospital in Yangon in a one-day training session on
Her drive to lend a helping hand continued back home, as she
enthusiastically volunteered in many charity events organised by SingHealth.
Her most memorable one was Project Groom-Over in 2015, 2016 and 2018, where she
joined other volunteers to help spring clean the homes of elderly residents in
neighbourhoods around SGH.
“Every Groom-Over session is memorable, especially when I
see the residents touched and happy that their homes are as good as new again.
They were always very grateful for our help, and their appreciation makes me
feel proud of myself,” she said.
“Volunteering gives me a
sense of achievement when I can make a difference to the lives of others” she added. “I hope I can continue on this volunteering
journey for as long as I am able to.”
