Foreword from President
Mdm Halimah Yacob
President of the Republic of Singapore
Patron of Sian Chay Medical Institution
Congratulations to Sian Chay Medical Institution on your successful election of the 83rd Term Board of Directors from 2018 to 2021.
I wish to commend the new Board of Directors, led by Chairman, Mr Toh Soon Huat, for taking up the challenge to lead Sian Chay in helping to meet the growing demand of an ageing population. The work of Sian Chay Medical Institution is a worthwhile one. In a time when the demand for quality healthcare is increasing, Sian Chay has taken on an important role in stepping up to provide free consultation and highly subsidised medicine and treatment for the community regardless of race, language or religion.
Sian Chay launched two healthcare schemes in recent years. They are the Pioneer Generation Medical Fund and the To’ Puan Dr. Tsao Sui Lan Memorial Endowment Fund. Launched in 2016 and 2018 respectively, the funds aim to care and support our Pioneer Generation and the underprivileged in Singapore so no one is denied quality healthcare.
Through the collective efforts of our volunteers, sponsors, partners and staff as well as the Board’s leadership, I am confident that Sian Chay will scale greater heights in providing healthcare to the community, strengthening our social fabric.
