The Viriya Elderly Medical Fund (VEMF) was launched on 13 July 2013 to help elderly with various medical conditions and low social and financial support. 

VEMF provides S$1,200 per year to each elderly beneficiary to help cover their daily expenses. VEMF also helps the elderly cope with medical expenses including transport, TCM treatment and other consumables. 

Our social workers will work with eldercare agencies and hospitals to provide community care for the elderly. Case management services will also be provided to link the beneficiaries to the required community resources. 

In the year 2013, S$7,200 was disbursed through NTUC and transport vouchers to 14 elderly receiving treatment for chronic illnesses.
