83rd Installation Ceremony – Mr. Melvin Yong Yik Chye
Mr. Melvin Yong Yik Chye
MP for Tanjong Pagar GRC
For over a century, Sian Chay Medical Institution remains committed to its original mission to serve those in need in our community regardless of race, religion or social status. Sian Chay has been providing medicine and timely treatment for countless patients. I truly appreciate the core values of “Forgiveness, Universal Love, Compassion, Gratitude, and Blessing” actively promoted by Chairman Toh Soon Huat, as well as the spirit of “trust, action, attitude, and respect which form the integrity and virtues of charity work.”
Sian Chay Medical Institution applies traditional Chinese medical treatments to relieve the patients’ pain and has received much recognition, praise, support and trust. Sian Chay, as a charitable organisation, has been active in promoting racial harmony and social stability.
Last year, Sian Chay set up a branch in Moulmein-Cairnhill constituency where I am serving as a Member of Parliament and a Grassroots Adviser. With dedicated attention from Sian Chay’s management team, the branch was designed, built and opened within a short time. Since its opening, the Moulmein-Cairnhill branch is getting rather popular with our residents, especially the elderly and those in need. Recently, our Moulmein-Cairnhill grassroots organisations launched a community voucher programme which allows eligible residents to seek health screening and medical treatment using the community vouchers. I am glad that Sian Chay Medical Institution is participating in this programme.
I would like to express my special appreciation to the management, staff, supporters and volunteers for their contributions and participation in all charitable activities throughout the years. Heartiest congratulations to Chairman Toh Soon Huat and the 83rd term Board of Directors on their Installation and I wish them all the best and great success in their new term!
