As St Luke’s Hospital (SLH) operates as a Voluntary Welfare Organisation (VWO), we are heavily dependent on partnerships with donors and volunteers, the work of SLH also raises awareness of the needs of the less fortunate.
SLH actively reaches out to schools as volunteer partners. Sterling examples of school volunteer partners include Methodist Girls’ School (MGS) which has supported SLH since 2000. At MGS, concerts or band competitions have been held annually since 2000 to raise funds for SLH. It raised a record $85,000 in 2012. In addition, the MGS girls also visit the elderly on-site at SLH and engage the patients in conversation and crafts. The girls are therefore given the opportunity to cultivate skills to meet the needs of the elderly.
Last year, 14 primary and secondary schools contributed to us with volunteers. 19 also participated in St Luke’s 2012 Hong Bao project. For a second year running, Ngee Ann Polytechic’s Business and Accountancy Society adopted SLH as its beneficiary.
St Luke’s Hospital staff are also active in helping other ILTC partners to conduct health and falls prevention screening for members of the public.
We are indeed thankful for the blessings our volunteers have been to us. If your organisation or school would like to partner with us, please contact us at 6895-3445
