SMA Charity Fund in brief



The SMA Charity Fund, the Singapore Medical Association’s (SMA) independent charity arm, is an Institution of a Public Character (IPC) and charity in Singapore. Both SMA and SMACF believe in giving back to society, and encourage SMA members to do the same. We are firm in our goal of addressing the myriad needs in the medical and public health landscape.

Through a four-pronged strategic approach, SMACF endeavours to develop a compassionate medical profession that contributes towards better healthcare in Singapore:

1)  Providing Financial Assistance: Provide financial assistance to support the living expenses of needy medical students in Singapore.
2)  Advocating Volunteerism: Promoting volunteerism amongst the medical profession.
3)  Supporting Learning Exposure: Providing needy medical students equal opportunities to gain international exposure and experience for better health outcomes for the public.
4)  Recognising Mentorship: Acknowledge and award exemplary mentors who have made a significant difference to the development of their students. 

Only with your support are we able to enable bright student like Mr Lau Lagarfeld, a Year 2 student at Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine, to learn and serve the community and patients. When it seems impossible for young Lagarfeld to pursue his dream in medicine when his father was retrenched but, against all odds, Mr Lau worked hard and made it possible for Lagarfeld by taking on additional part-times jobs to make ends meet. Here is their story.
