NUHS Fund Limited is a Company Limited
by Guarantee and a registered charity
with IPC status. The charity was set
up by the National University Health
System (NUHS) to promote medical
research and development as well as
provide health-related services to
benefit the Singapore community.
A key objective is to address unmet gaps
not covered by existing government and
community assistance schemes, as well
as support patients who are determined
to be in need of financial assistance with
the costs of medical treatment and the
NUHS Fund Limited relies on the support
of benefactors and donors. Every dollar
donated goes in its entirety to help
beneficiaries and their families. Donations
may be made via this link:bit.ly/NUHSfund .
Beyond dollars and cents
Understanding that giving extends beyond
financial support, the team from Bunge Asia
Private Limited has committed 400 hours of
service to spend time with elderly patients at the
National University Hospital (NUH). The seniors
have cognitive impairment in conversations and
activities. Every week, sta from the agribusiness
and food company visit the wards to interact and
engage patients in activities planned by NUH's
nursing and rehabilitation departments.
The volunteers have commented that they have
picked up new skills to interact with the elderly,
through training sessions by the nurses and hands-
on experience in the wards. They added that the
experience has given them more insights on how
to deal with their elderly relatives.
NUH patients also benefited from global insurance
agent XL Catlin’s Global Day of Giving in May 2016.
Child patients and their siblings were treated to a
day of fun and games organised by XL Catlin sta .
The activities gave the patients a much-needed
break from the routine of their hospital stay.
The XL Catlin sta found the project so meaningful
that they signed up again to organise a Christmas
event for more young patients. They brought joy
to the children with a magic show as well as roving
Santas and Elves who distributed presents in the
wards, Intensive Care Unit and Emergency Clinic
Mr Mark Houghton, XL Catlin’s Regional Manager,
shared that the company is “thankful for the
opportunity to bring cheer to these children… to
be able to o er them some time away from their
wards and relish what it is like to be a kid, even if
just for a moment”.
