RECIPIENT #1: Mdm A

S$3,186.00 will afford Mdm A 6 months of Glucerna milk feeds ($17.70/day)

Bed bound since 2008, Mdm A suffers several illness, including recurrent strokes, hypertension, diabetes and hyperlipidaemia (high levels of fat in the blood). As such, she needs help with her daily needs such as feeding herself, dressing and going to the toilet. Her husband suffers medical problems of his own and also requires vigilant care.

RECIPIENT #2: Mr B

S$1,645.80 will afford Mr B 3 months of nutritional supplements ($43.31/tin)

Mr B suffers from squamous cell cancer of the tongue and is unable to eat due to side effects of chemotherapy and radiotherapy - loss of appetite, mouth pain, soreness and dryness. He has lost more than 5kgs in 3 months. As the recovery of his appetite is slow, Mr B has to take nutritional supplements to help his well-being.


* * *


RECIPIENT #3: Mr C

S$800.00 will afford Mr C a hearing aid that would greatly enhance his quality of life and independence

Mr C is widowed with two sons. Though he is motivated to regain employment, he is unable to do so because of hearing difficulties. Lack of hearing aid has also impacted his daily life - he is afraid to go out as he cannot hear on-coming traffic. With severe hearing loss in both ears, Mr C faces isolation as it is hard for him to communicate and interact with others.

All funds will be collected in sealed donation tins provided by the TTSHCCF, who will dispense the funds to the beneficiaries.


The Hawker Sessions team does not have any contact with the recipients. Out of respect, their identifies will remain anonymous.


If we raise more than the targeted sum, the extra will be donated to more needy patients under TTSHCCF.

MORE ABOUT THE HAWKER SESSIONS & OUR SPONSORS


HOW IT BEGAN

The Hawker Sessions was conceived by one of the winning teams at the first Worldwide Feast Singapore. We realized that Friday nights in Singapore are seen by many as a night to unwind, eat, drink, and catch up with friends. So we thought, why not continue this tradition, but at a hawker centre where the money saved on expensive cocktails and spirits could then be put toward something meaningful like helping a local family in need?

WHO WE ARE

The team behind The Hawker Sessions is a melting pot of newcomers to the city and long-time residents, who believe giving should be simple, transparent and enjoyable for everyone. Singapore’s unique blend of locals and expats is something we look to replicate in our Sessions, to foster a community that is diverse and inclusive.
