SINGAPORE GENERAL HOSPITAL - SGH Festive Cheers For A Cause 2017!


On the 18th and 19th November 2017, SGH Development Office and CapitaLand Malls, and in partnership with five local arts elective secondary schools organised the SGH Festive Cheers For A Cause 2017!, an island-wide bazaar to raise public awareness on SGH Needy Patients Fund and raise funds for SGH Needy Patients Fund. Students from Jurong West Secondary School, New Town Secondary School, Ngee Ann Secondary School, School of the Arts, and St. Andrew’s Secondary School reused, recycled and repurposed last year’s Christmas decorations that were generously donated by CapitaLand Malls and sold their beautiful creations to benefit the SGH patients in need over the 2-day event. The community came together to support the SGH Needy Patients Fund and at the same time, became a source of encouragement to the students who have sacrificed so much to give back to the community. The SGH Needy Patients Fund supports more than 2,500 patient cases each year, particularly the elderly and those who have exhausted all avenues of financial help. Some patients in need need that extra help with short-term subsistence support to buffer the reduction or loss of income consequent to the onset of a chronic or terminal illness, or medical trauma. Every year, the funds needed to cover the many pressing medical conditions for these patients in need amount to about $800,000. This averages to about $300 per patient per year to provide financial aid to those who require assistance due to their medical condition. On the 18th of November, we held the opening reception of the SGH Festive Cheers For A Cause! Leaders of the schools that were involved, CapitaLand Mall associates and members of the public attended the event. Guest were treated to a morning of splendid festive performances including a handbell performance by Methodist Girls School’s handbell choir and Christmas songs sung by our Singhealth staff.
