About Healing Gets A
Helping Hand Wound Care Fund

One in 20 Singaporeans live with wounds that take a long time to heal.

Wounds are often referred to as a silent epidemic in healthcare as patients with wounds frequently suffer from other conditions like diabetes or hypertension. Without proper treatment, wounds can lead to infection, physical pain and psychological distress, and consequently greatly reduce a patient’s quality of life. Wound care is critical but costly, with treatments ranging from $800 to $1,000 per person per month, lasting from three to six months. This financial burden can be challenging for some.

Through St Luke’s ElderCare’s Healing Gets A Helping Hand Wound Care Fund, our wound care team can provide essential treatment services, train staff on wound care techniques and best practices, as well as support research work. Your generous donations will help to make a significant impact and improve the lives of our elders.

Poet's Inspiration - Kenny Tan

Foreword by
Bishop Emeritus Robert M. Solomon

The gospel of Jesus is presented in a nutshell by the apostle Paul: “Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures...he was buried...he was raised on the third day...he appeared” (1 Cor 15:3-5). The season of Lent helps us to be reminded of this gospel. This book by Dr Kenny Tan is immensely helpful because it is an unusual Lent devotion filled with gifted poetry that invites us to plunge deeply into gospel truth.

Poetry is the expression of powerful feelings; like a good painting, it is often better than a thousand words. Here we encounter the Son of God, the living Christ who gave Himself for us. We hear individuals like Joseph and Mary, the Samaritan woman, Mary of Bethany, even the donkey. Old Testament voices can also be heard. Significant events in the life of Christ come to us afresh in poetic brilliance. Above all, we are taken to the Last Supper, Gethsemane, Golgotha, the empty tomb, and the heavens.

If you are looking for a meaningful resource to go through Lent, this is an excellent choice. The poetry slows us down to take in truth, slowly and deeply, and meet the One who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.

Bishop Emeritus Robert M. Solomon
