The Singapore Hospice Council presented a successful fundraising concert on World Hospice and Palliative Care Day.

Performers with the band

Arousing evening filled with familiar tunes and heartfelt songs performed by Kit Chan, HaoFM deejays, as well as Singapore Hospice Council (SHC) volunteer and member performers as SHC held its first in-person fundraising event, the Voices For Hospices concert, since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Graced by Speaker of Parliament, Mr Tan Chuan-Jin and attended by staff of SHC member organisations and supporters of palliative care, the concert held at School of the Arts (SOTA) successfully raised $500,000.

At the concert, Mr Tan shared why talking about death with loved ones is important, even if it is not easy. He said, “Healthcare expenditure increases dramatically in the last six to nine months of a person’s life. With medical science, we can extend life, but whether the quality of life is the way it should be, perhaps not. All of us have to deal with these issues.”

Held on World Hospice and Palliative Care Day, the event also paid tribute to the palliative care workers for their commitment and dedication to providing care to people in need.

Sponsors with Mr. Tan Chuan-Jin
