- Solis has partnered with non-profit organizations (NGOs) in offering breast diagnostics and treatments for the underprivileged through funds raised from a silent art auction themed ‘The Art of Hope’
- The art pieces seek to instil hope and bring forth the message that there is hope in the fight against breast cancer
Detecting breast cancer early increases the chances of survival. Thus, as the first of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) efforts, Solis has partnered Humanitarian Organisation for Migration Economics (HOME) in offering complimentary consultation, diagnostic and/or treatments to care for female foreign domestic workers (FDWs) here in Singapore.
Founded in 2004 by the late Ms Bridget Tan, HOME is a Singapore-based charity that is dedicated to empowering and supporting migrant workers who experience abuse and exploitation. They provide immediate crisis intervention as well as long-term support such as education and training programmes to achieve their goal of enhancing the well-being and employment prospects of migrant workers.
The best medicine is to serve. Solis, as a seamlessly cohesive one-stop centre and solution for women’s breast care with its team of renowned surgeons, steps up to help this group of people who are an integral part of our society but who often fall through the cracks. Working together with HOME is the first step to the brand’s CSR initiative and they hope to continue giving back to society with the other NGOs as well.
On 25th May 2022, Solis Breast Care and Surgery Centre unveiled The Art of Hope, a silent art auction where sale proceeds raised will be donated to HOME. The Art of Hope showcases a beautiful one-of-a-kind art exhibition for patients, caregivers, and the public. As the name of the auction suggests, the art pieces seek to instil hope and bring forth the message that there is hope in the fight against breast cancer.
This installation, which follows a more abstract theme, is currently featured at Solis, The Paragon’s clinic, from now till 30th September 2022. This installation features seven artworks by Gale Chong and Christine Lok.
Gale Choong is a self-taught artist who began her journey last year. Covid and being largely home-bound gave her the perfect opportunity to pick up the brushes, and she has since started an online gallery on Instagram (@paintz_reverie).
Christine Lok is a Singapore based visual artist, arts educator, and industry professional whose visual arts practice explores the intricacies of the human condition. Through a diverse body of work, her viewers are confronted with the social, psychological, and often overlooked issues faced in everyday life.
Interested bidders may check out the artworks for this second installation physically at Solis, The Paragon’s clinic, from now till 30th September 2022.
