To promote racial harmony and the mutual understanding among the multi races and for a better Singapore, Sian Chay Medical Institution in collaboration with Volta will organize a charity concert entitled “Love and Care Sian Chay Charity Concert” on 26th November, 2017. Volta group members come from Hwa Chong Institution, Nanyang Girls’ High School, Raffles Girls’ High School and Raffles Institution. Sian Chay is the supporting and beneficiary organization. Mr. Henry Kwek Hian Chuan, MP of Nee Soon GRC will officiate at the event. Fund-raising is not the sole purpose of the concert. It also aims to let more Singaporeans know about Sian Chay and engage more young people in philanthropy. At the same time, it also helps more needy Singaporeans and deliver the social welfare to them.
It is estimated about 1,600 guests will be in attendance, including long-term generous supporters and sponsors of Sian Chay, school principals, teachers, students and public.
For a long time, Sian Chay has been actively promoting the development of philanthropy in Singapore and sowing the seeds of love. The core values of “Forgiveness, Universal Love, Compassion, Gratitude and Blessing” are carved in the heart of every Sian Chay person. They co-operate with the nation building and foster social harmony. Sian Chay actively promotes the belief that “Nation Progresses, Family Prospers; Family Harmony, Successful Endeavours. Forward with the Nation, Bonding with the People”. By actively supporting the beneficial causes and giving back to the society through active participation in charity activities organized by civic groups, community organisations and community centres. Sian Chay is advocating the dream of love through every action.
Sian Chay has a century long history. Ever since serving as Chairman in 2008, Mr Toh Soon Huat has witnessed this century old charity glowing with new vitality under the combined efforts of the public and the Board of Directors as well as the management team. Within a few years, Sian Chay has developed into a charitable organization with 15 branches serving about 1,200 patient visits per day. The 4 wellness centres supported by Sian Chay serve over 10,000 residents engaging in mental and physical wellness activities. Sian Chay has also gained widespread recognition and compliments from patients and benevolent personalities in the community.
In 2008, the number of patient visits was 2,958. This increased to 57,197 in 2014 and further to 330,000 in 2016 with 670,000 dosages of prescriptions. In the past three and half years from Jan 2014 to June 2017, 13 branch clinics served up to 730,000 patient visits with 1.56 million dosages of prescription, showing a dramatic increase in number of patient visits and dosages of medications. This turnover will increase to 1,500 daily patient visits when our network of branches increases to 16 in 2019.
In the next five years (2018-2022), it is forecasted that the number of patient visits will be up to 2.5 million and the number of dosages of prescription will reach 4.8 million, which will benefit a huge number of patients.
The donation drive only asks for $10 which can benefit one patient visit from low-income family seeking free consultation and medication at Sian Chay. Helping one patient amounts to helping a whole family to remove pain and build a blissful family.
We hope to share Sian Chay’s charity TCM platform with more people through this event; so that more people will be aware and know of Sian Chay and to further improve Sian Chay. Let us move forward with Sian Chay with more good deeds, more contributions to the society for benefitting the public and to create social harmony.
We look forward to the assistance and support from the society and together promote Sian Chay’s mission to serve the community. We look forward to your participation and strong support. With gratitude.
