About Us
Nam Hong Welfare Service Society is a truly community-based charity registered with MOH, providing Free TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) treatment for the disadvantaged and the elderly, offering free funeral service, ration & community support for the elderly poor, and distributing bursary to students from disadvantaged families. We also provide visiting treatment for elderly persons at old folk’s homes, and conduct public education health talks at community centres.

Medical costs in Singapore have been rising, and many do not have the means to fully take care of their needs when they fall ill.  We fill this service gap through the provision of free medical treatment at our clinics in Yishun and Woodlands. Our organization is ISO 9001 certified, staffed by experienced full-time physicians and is equipped with a computerized patient management system.

With the growing popularity of TCM, the proven efficacy of its benefits, and the rapidly graying population, our patient number has been growing steadily. We treated around 40,000 patients annually in the past 3 years, which is testimony that such services are well received by the public. Most of our patients are economically challenged, staying in 3-room or smaller flats, with family per-capital income below $2000.

Besides providing TCM medical services, Nam Hong Welfare Service Society also distribute rations to the elderly disadvantaged in the community, and offer bursary to needy students of all races. Health Talks are also conducted periodically at community venues to enhance awareness on health and fitness.


Our Mission is to provide free and quality Traditional Chinese Medical (TCM) treatments for socio-economically challenged families and individuals irregardless of language, race or religion.

Our Vision  is to be a Caring and Well-Respected Charitable Organization looking unconditionally into the well being of the less fortunate.

Our Motto  is – Serve Others with Compassion, Treat One Another with Respect and Perform Our Duties with Integrity.



Free TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) Medical Treatment
Nam Hong Welfare Service Society is a community-based charity registered with MOH, providing Free TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) treatment for the elderly, disadvantaged and the general public, since 2001.  Our clinics in Yishun and Woodlands offer high quality medical treatment emphasizing on efficacy & effectiveness, and have won the admiration and respect of many patients. We also provide mobile treatment for elderly persons in old folks homes & day care centres.

We received around 40,000 patient visits annually in the past 3 years, which is testimony of public support towards our service. We also provide ration to the elderly poor, and bursary for disadvantaged students. Our organization is ISO 9001 certified, manned by experienced full-time physicians, and is equipped with a computerized patient management system.

We believe in providing the most effective and ethical service. Patient’s well-being is our utmost concern. We want more people to learn about the usefulness of TCM treatment.

Free Funeral Service
Nam Hong Welfare Service Society has started a new Free Funeral Service for elders who have no relatives, or are poor and destitute, so that they can continue living with the peace of mind and ease of heart. If you have such needs, do not hesitate to give us a call.  We also cater to Muslims & Hindus, according to their religious customs.



“Caring Heart” service for the elderly
Whilst visiting elderly to enroll for the Free Funeral Service, Nam Hong Welfare Service Society noticed a significant number of disadvantaged elderly struggling to make a living at the edge of the society. Therefore “Nam Hong Caring Heart Volunteer Corp” was formed, to conduct periodic visits and deliver ration and subsistence, while offering care & assistance to the elderly.

We welcome donation of food, daily necessities or Ang Bao money, as well as Volunteers for this meaningful project. Together we shall make Yishun an exemplary Caring Community.



Distribution of Ration/Ang Bao & Distribution of Bursary
Nam Hong Welfare Service Society provides ration & food items to disadvantaged elderly persons, organizes dinner for them and distributes Ang Bao during festive seasons. The items are donated by well-wishers and generous business owners.  Simple “means testing” & home visits are conducted to ensure that the benefits are given to those who truly deserve.

Besides, Nam Hong Welfare Service Society also offers scholarship & bursary to students from disadvantaged family backgrounds, primarily to those staying in the Yishun-Sembawang area. Applications are opened towards year-end, with application forms available at Nam Hong’s medical clinic.



Health Forums & Voluntary Consultation
Nam Hong Welfare Service Society organizes health talks periodically, to educate the public on common ailments and health related issues, as well as promoting a better understanding towards TCM treatment. At times, such health talks are organized in partnership with professionals in western medicine or nutritionists. Ms Ling Ai is our medical centre’s voluntary nutritionist whom will appear as guest speaker at our health talks.

Nam Hong Welfare Service Society do organize voluntary consultation for the public where public can come and consult our experienced physicians.
