Mr. Heng said in his speech, “Sian Chay Medical Institution, under the able leadership of the Chairman Mr. Toh Soon Huat, has made phenomenal progress in the past 4 years since 2014. From only one clinic serving tens of patients daily at the beginning to nowadays, Sian Chay with its network of 13 branches supported by 115 fulltime TCM staff, has served more than 1,000 patients daily and dispensed 1,560,888 dosages of prescriptions. That is the expansion of Sian Chay. I wish to commend Sian Chay for the compassion to set up the Pioneer Generation Medical Fund in 2016 to appreciate the Pioneer Generation for their contributions to the nation building.”
Mr. Raymond Chua, Organising Committee Chairman, said, “Over its 100 years of history, though experiencing up and downs, Sian Chay never changed its original commitment to deliver devotion and universal love. Sian Chay is not only a TCM clinic to provide consultation and medication regardless of race, religion or citizenship, it’s also a place where love is cultivated, gathered and spread. Since his election as Chairman of Sian Chay, Mr Toh soon Huat has rebranded and rejuvenated this traditional charitable organization. On top of its benevolent tradition of serving the public, it also develops its long-term plan to focus on spreading its five core values and philanthropy spirit.”
