IMC Industrial Group (IMCIG) and Tsao Foundation worked diligently over the last four months and managed to raise over S$265,000 at the annual IMC-Tsao Foundation Charity Golf 2018 held at the Tanah Merah Country Club today.
It was made possible by the generosity of IMCIG’s business associates and corporate customers and Tsao Foundation’s donors. In addition, the organizing committee is hoping to receive another $100,000 grant from the Tote Board, as well as matching fund from the Agency for Integrated Care (AIC) Community Silver Trust grant.
The total amount raised will help to fund the eldercare services at Hua Mei Centre for Successful Ageing (HMCSA) – one of the initiatives at Tsao Foundation – which serves some 3,500 elders and their families.
The Hua Mei Centre for Successful Ageing (HMCSA) is a one-stop, first-stop primary healthcare provider at Tsao Foundation established since 1993. The Centre delivers team-managed medical, social, and psycho-emotional care primarily to adults aged 40 years and above living in the community. It also offers support and guidance to their caregivers.
HMCSA encourages self-care and self-mastery to promote wellbeing, providing necessary information and training at the clients’ pace. Clients of HMCSA can consult at more than one clinic or programme at the same time, or transfer from one to another as their needs change over time. Over the care continuum, they engage their clients in active health promotion and preventive healthcare through to disease management and end of life care.
More than 100 IMC Industrial Group’s business associates and corporate customers and donors from Tsao Foundation participated in the charitable cause, to help towards capacity building needed for providing quality care for the elderly.
Mr Ryan Chan, Group Managing Director, IMC Industrial Group, said: “We are grateful to our business partners and associates for their continuous support for this charitable cause. This annual fundraising initiative for Tsao Foundation is our way of helping the 3,500 elderly, to continue to enjoy quality life in their golden years. We look forward to working closely with Tsao Foundation for many more initiatives, to provide care and concern for the aged.”
“This is the 12th year that we have organized this IMC-Tsao Foundation Charity Golf and we are really grateful to the strong support we garnered through the years. The amount raised will go to the seven services under the umbrella of HMCSA towards providing person-centred, holistic healthcare to elders and their families with the aim of enabling them to optimize their health and well-being across the life course, and to age at home and in the community”, added Mr Er Kwong Wah, Chairman of IMC-Tsao Foundation Charity Golf.
