Serving On Amidst A Pandemic

Our Community Service (CS) team has been hands on – literally! – during the current COVID-19 crisis, manning our frontline counter and hearing care center on every weekday. We have also had an action-packed schedule, organising activities and events for clients while following safety measures.

Enjoy the highlights! 

Live on Radio!

On 9 March 2020, senior audiological manager Lai Siu Fai was on a radio talk show to share about age-related hearing loss together with Ng Teng Fong Hospital’s audiology head.

Hear together!

Our Hearing Care Centre collaborated with NUS student group “Hear Together” to do a hearing screening for the elderly at Heartbeat@Bedok on 7 & 10 March 2019. We managed to screen 109 elderly folks!

Hear Me Out

On 30 May 2020, students from Hwa Chong Institution “Project Hear Me Out” organised an online games session with five Deaf participants. 

Mask But Not Least!
