Ren Ci Hospital
The roots of Ren Ci (仁慈) traced back to 1994 with the primary mission of providing affordable medical, nursing and rehabilitative care services for the community, living to its name of “compassion” and “benevolence”. This is driven by the principle of serving all with loving kindness and compassion, regardless of background, race and religion.
Most of the long-staying residents in Ren Ci’s nursing homes come from low income families, while some are destitute. Suffering from multiple chronic medical conditions, their long-term healthcare needs have been draining them financially. While majority of the patients are either wheelchair bound or bedridden, they still long to return to their loved ones someday.

With a vision to promote mental wellness for all, SAMH is committed to improve the lives of, and promote acceptance and respect for, persons with mental health issues and improve the mental resilience of the community.
In 2018, SAMH celebrated its 50th anniversary where the Association pledged its commitment to step up efforts and address the growing challenge of mental health issues among the people, young and old.
