Sian Chay always promotes the values of “Forgiveness, Universal Love, Compassion, Gratitude and Blessing” as its mission, and advocates trust, action, attitude and conduct as the integrity and virtues of its charity work to serve more people in need, and inculcates this spirit in our society, so that more people can benefit. We believe in: “Nation Progresses, Family Prospers; Family Harmony, Successful Endeavours. Forward with the Nation, Bonding with the People “
Since its establishment 119 years ago, Sian Chay Medical Institution has received the support of the public, especially in the past 10 years. With the strong support and care of the government, relevant government agencies and institutions, Sian Chay has always taken care of the low-income elderly and families in need, regardless of nationality, race, religion and status.
Recently, we received a letter of encouragement from Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong:
“Soon Huat, thank you for your letter!
I am very glad that Sian Chay has taken positive actions to fight against the epidemic. Thank you very much that under your leadership, Sian Chay has generously donated to other charities, especially those charities with financial difficulties. Thank you for the free TCM consultation and medical subsidies provided by Sian Chay to the vulnerable groups. These services give strong assurance to residents.
In addition to the fight against the Covid-19 epidemic, you have played an invaluable role in bringing our communities together and provided health care services for the public. I know that for many elderlies have been looking forward to the re-opening of traditional Chinese medicine charities such as Sian Chay Medical Institution. We hope that the services you provide will alleviate their pain and suffering and bring them happiness and well-being.
On a personal note, I would like to thank you for your continued support to the Sengkang South CCC as patron and your strong support of Ang Mo Kio GRC. I look forward to your assistance and support in the years ahead! “
