SINGAPORE: A 75-year-old Indian-Singaporean doctor has been honored by the Indian community here for contributing her 38 years in the healthcare and community services by building nursing homes and child health care.

Dr Uma Rajan became the first woman to receive the tabla! Community Champion Award here.
The award, in its fifth year, was conferred on her by Minister of State for Law and Education Indranee Rajah.

After receiving the award, Rajan said, “This award is a recognition of women as community service providers.”

She won USD 10,000 which she donated to voluntary welfare organizations, Singapore Children’s Society and Asian Women’s Welfare Association in Singapore.

The current vice-chairman of the Siglap South Community Centre has helped in building nine to 10 elderly care centers with voluntary welfare organizations for all religions when she was director of the elder care department at the Ministry of Health from 1996 to 2000.

Among many credits to her community service is a blue booklet still being used by students here for their annual health check-ups.

Rajan was also one of the founding members of the Singapore Indian Fine Arts Society and received the title of Natyakala Bhushanam (ornament of dance) from the Indian Institute of Fine Arts in Chennai in 1954. -PTI
