Love from BSFIT at Singapore
Â Love from BSFIT at Singapore.
28 July, 2017
Nation Progresses, Family Prospers; Family Harmony, Successful Endeavours. Forward with the Nation, Bonding with the People.
Choosing Sian Chay because of compassion. Choosing to accept because of forgiveness. Choosing to bear because of karma. Choosing to contribute because of appreciation. Choosing universal love because of lives. When helping a patient to reduce the pain and seek for longevity, it also means helping all the members of the whole family to create happy lives.
—–Mr. Toh Soon Huat

Tan Seok Khim, Managing Directors of BSFIT (S) Holding Pte Ltd, Mr. Huang Zhaocai of Able H&P (S) Pte Ltd, Mr Philip Chan, Managing Director of Mutual Benefits Realty Pte Ltd, Mr. Liang Du Jiu, Director of Jin He Environmental Protection Pte Ltd, Mr. Richard Hu from R & F Princess Cove and other kind individuals.
Minister Lim Swee Say, after presenting mementoes to those benevolent individuals and organizations also presented certificate of appreciation to those donors and successful bidders for the items auctioned at the â€œLove from Sian Chay Charity Galaâ€ on 8th July . Their spirit of kindness and charity are admirable.
On the event, Minister Lim said, “it’s almost impossible for any organization to increase its annual number of beneficiaries from thousands to hundreds of thousands in just ten years. As most organizations can see, that is not possible. But in Singapore, one organization really made it. It is Sian Chay Medical Institution.”
“Why did Sian Chay make it while others cannot? I believe that it is because of Sian Chayâ€™s faith, which is to promote healthy living and blissful lives. It is because of its mission, which is to promote TCM education and development as well as to participate in the charitable and humanitarian work in Singapore. It is because of its core value, which is “Forgiveness, Universal Love, Compassion, Gratitude, and Blessing”. It is because of its beliefs that â€œForward with the Nation, Bonding with the People.â€ It is because of its spirit, which is to promote charity work, strengthen the spirit of social service and philanthropy. For those that others cannot accomplish, Sian Chay not only did it, but do even better.”
“It’s an endless journey of doing good deeds and accumulating kindness to obtain happiness and virtue. Sian Chay has progressed for the last 116 years. As it’s said â€œlong and challenging journey to goal, it has a very long road in front of Sian Chay to go. As in Singapore, there are still many low income elderly with poor health conditions who are seeking Sian Chay’s help for their medical treatment and prescription. Thus, we must stay united. As a charitable organization, it has always been a challenge for Sian Chay management team to raise funds. It is indeed the responsibility of the Singapore government to embrace the people, but it is also an obligation that every Singaporean cannot shirk. Let us all together, be generous, and push tonight’s Love & Care Dinner to the huge success.
“Hereby, I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to BSFIT for its great contribution to the Charity Dinner tonight. I am also very grateful to our 400 Chinese friends coming all the way from China to Singapore to support tonight’s Charity Dinner. Thank you. I hereby wish Sian Chay a bigger success in the future, and I wish you all a healthy body and happy spirit, thank you!”
Mr. Yang Haidong said, “Sian Chay promotes the implementation of TCM treatment and health lifestyle to maintain public health and to improve the happiness of Singaporeans. BSFIT’s philosophy is to help all people enjoy health and beauty, to help partners to share a happy life. Client’s longing for health and beauty is the goal that BSFIT works for. BSFIT received public support during its thriving development. Now it’s time for us to give back to the society and to take on social responsibility. We will do our best to help the needy groups, to contribute to the society, which is a shared value between our two organizations.”
Chairman Toh Soon Huat talked about his experience during fundraising for Sichuan Earthquake Relief efforts in 2008. â€œTogether with a few friends, within a short period of 7 days, we organized a mega TV Charity show â€˜Humanity without Borderless, Love without limitâ€™, which was co-organized by SPH, and raised a total of $10 Million. All funds rasied were transferred to the designated account of Chinese Embassy and then transferred to designated units in Sichuan Disaster Area for funding of the construction of children’s education and welfare facilities. At the same time, we also worked closely with the Sichuan provincial government in China, to build seven Singapore-China Friendship Primary Schools, and a bridge. All funds were fully utilised for dedicated projects. All other expenses were borne by the members of fundraising committee and Project management team on their own expenses. During that four years, the members of the Committee did not make any personal claims.”
Mr. Toh said, “Philanthropy is a commitment. To bear, to be compassionate, to have empathy to other. There is no choice, no preference, but only unlimited devotion and gratitude. Trust, Action, Attitude and Conduct form the integrity and virtues of charity work. Sian Chay promotes the 5 core values, which are Forgiveness, Universal Love, Compassion, Gratitude and Blessing, and the belief that “Nation Progresses, Family Prospers; Family Harmony, Successful Endeavours. Forward with the Nation, Bonding with the People.” We cannot hold the past, neither can we predict the future. Do not fear to give. Donâ€™t take it for granted to own anything. The real ownership is the connotation. All the past, contribution of sincerity, kindness and beauty, even if it is just a little bit compassion or gratitude.”
His speech deeply touched every guest. One of the guests, Mr. Hu En Ci, was very moved and immediately donated $50,000. A total of $586,336 was raised that night. And more than 400 Chinese BSFIT distributors came to Singapore to Â accomplish the great action of love.
In addition to delicious food and Awards, the event also invited a number of well-known local artistes, including young musician Wang Lina’s violin performance, belly dance performances by local dance group Singapore Extraordinaire Dance School, famous musician Jay Lim, for the guests. The most eye-catching performer was Aaron Tan from LEX Entertainment. His team brought singing performance full of Singapore flavour , which was also broadcasted live via RingsTV.
Every $10 donation can benefit one patient from low-income family to receive free-consultation and medication at Sian Chay. When helping a patient, it also means helping the whole family to relieve from pain and to pursue a blissful family life.
Mr. Toh Soon Huat, Chairman of Sian Chay, promotes the 5 core values of Sian Chay, which are Forgiveness, Universal Love, Compassion, Gratitude and Blessing, and the commitment of Sian Chay, to support nation building and social harmony. From the society, for the society. Wish everyone working together to care for the vulnerable and needy by contributing money or effort. Mr. Toh advocates the belief that “Nation Progresses, Family Prospers; Family Harmony, Successful Endeavours.â€ Forward with the Nation, Bonding with the People. It is an important way to return to the society by active participation in charity events organized by community organisations, associations and community centres.
Hope that more people get to know about Sian Chay’s TCM charity platform through this event and to make Sian Chay better through better understanding of it. Wish more people join Sian Chay, to do good deeds, to contribute to the community, to benefit the people, and to create a harmonious society!
We look forward to the support from all community sectors and we wish to expand our network for the public service purposes. Hope for active participation and support from all sectors. Thank you very much!
A total of about 800 people celebrated the event together. The event successfully concluded at about 11pm.
