“In my one-on-one counselling sessions with patients, some would confide in me their personal worries, such as the financial burden of their hospital bills. Not all of them qualify for the typical social assistance schemes so having to choose between their personal health and burdening their families financially is an unwilling choice they have to make.
I personally believe that no one should be denied access to treatment simply because they cannot afford it. Being a staff donor to the SCH Health Fund allows me to do an extra bit to help needy patients who fall through the cracks. It is a blessing and my privilege to be able to give, and I hope I can encourage others around me to do the same.”
