The nation’s healthcare concerns centre around managing rising medical costs and increased demand for public healthcare services. In 2020, there were 3.7 million policyholders of Medisave, the nation’s compulsory medical savings scheme, and 1.4 million policyholders of ElderShield, a severe disability insurance scheme mainly for the elderly.
We worked closely with the government to help the nation ringfence the spread of COVID-19 in its first wave, when the virus spread like wildfire in foreign worker dormitories. We reacted quickly to roll out PCR and serology testing and set up instruments to support increased testing capabilities. In 2021, we worked with pharmacies, online retailers and corporates to support regular testing for the broader population through the launch of rapid antigen tests for self-testing.
Aiding the vulnerable in the fight against COVID-19
To mitigate the effects of COVID-19 on elderly and children, we partnered with Lions Befrienders Service Association and New Life Community Services, rallying as OneRoche to raise over S$80,000.
We contributed an additional S$130,000 to provide children from low-income families with the avenue to still continue their studies smoothly as schools transitioned online by working with New Life Community Services.
