Officially founded on June 25, 1985 and registered by the Registrar of Societies, the Haemophilia Society of Singapore (HSS) provides help and support for individuals with haemophilia. Acknowledged by the Commissioner of Charities on September 17, 1986, HSS is an affiliated member of the National Council of Social Services (NCSS) and a member of the World Federation of Haemophilia (WFH).
Over the years, HSS has established itself as an inclusive community, connecting haemophilia patients and their families with others facing similar challenges, sharing their experiences and providing mutual support. We also held many seminars to raise awareness and understanding of this lesser known medical condition. Additionally, the society acts as a link between haemophilia patients and medical caregivers, promoting better understanding and long-term relationships.
Written and composed by one of our members, David Foo, the HSS song is about never losing hope and always having that fighting spirit within us.
