Our SoulAt The Sloane Clinic, we're about doing good as well as looking good. Many years ago, when The Sloane Clinic team of doctors, nurses and apothecary staff were filling ampoules on a refurbished ping pong table, they vowed if The Sloane Clinic was successful, giving back would be the most important thing they as an organization could do.
The team at The Sloane Clinic is thrilled to let you know that many charities are receiving our support. Causes close to the hearts of many here have been chosen to be the main recipients. As well, innumerable charities receive donated products from The Sloane Clinic, whether for silent auctions from which 100% of the proceeds go to the cause, for gift bags at their events or for those in need. We urge you to click on the links to our favourite non-profits and support the vital work they do.

Singapore Cheshire Home
This year, the staff and doctors of The Sloane Clinic have committed to the Standard Chartered Marathon 2012 to defy their personal limitations. We invite all of you to join us in defying your limitations by committing to one new challenge for 2012. Be Free to Defy.
The Sloane Clinic will be pledging $10 for every kilometer completed by our staff to Singapore Cheshire Home.
The Singapore Cheshire Home was founded in 1957 to provide for the care of the seriously disabled with limited means and inadequate family support. The Home aims to provide for the care, rehabilitation, encouragement, stimulation and happiness of these seriously disabled residents, and to give them the best chance to live normal lives.

Children's Cancer Foundation
The Children's Cancer Foundation (CCF) is dedicated to help improve the quality of life of cancer-stricken children and their families. The threat of cancer in our affluent lifestyle is very real. With about 120 new cases of childhood cancer diagnosed annually, it is important that we press on with our fight against this disease. Up till now, the causes of most childhood cancers are still unknown. However, one thing is certain - cancer inflicts immense physical and emotional stress on the child and family.
With core programmes in place, the Children's Cancer Foundation (CCF) is well-positioned to be a holistic provider to care for cancer afflicted children and their families. CCF supports the training and research of childhood cancer and complements our hospitals' efforts in this area to enhance survival of this illness.
The Sloane Clinic is sponsoring the Children's CCF's Hair for Hope Event in May 2007. For more details on this and other events, go to www.ccf.org.sg

Tetraplegia Workgroup Singapore
Tetraplegia Workgroup, a non-profit voluntary group under Friends of Tan Tock Seng Hospital (Singapore) caters to the needs of tetraplegics to foster a sense of "Family Spirit" among the community. This is achieved through events, outings and recreational activities specially organised for the tetraplegics to help them form a supportive framework. Besides befriending tetraplegic persons, they also assist in meeting their medical, social, vocational and physical needs by linking with existing services available.
Most of these tetraplegics are home-bound and face difficulties with the physical constraints; it takes extra effort from both the tetraplegic person and their families to re-integrate into our society. Tetraplegic Workgroup aims to to help them cope with life challenges by offering support and friendship. For more information, please visit www.tetraplegiaworkgroup.org
