Volunteering

Patients at St Luke’s Hospital may have undergone surgery, amputation, and may suffer from chronic or life-threatening conditions which require constant medical or rehabilitative care. They may also face loneliness or despondency arising from their medical episodes or physical impairment. Some could have even lost their job.

Our volunteers play a crucial role in the healing and rehabilitative journey of our patients. Volunteers bring cheer to patients, lift their downcast spirits and help promote recovery and overall well-being. The care that volunteers give contributes to our holistic care for patients which encompasses not just physical, but emotional and psychosocial aspects as well.

We are currently only facilitating virtual volunteering. To find out more, email volunteer@stluke.org.sg
