Gotta Catch Them All - the Sterilisation Fundraiser
by Cat Welfare Society
It's time to catch them all! CWS has received requests to sterilise nearly 250 cats in our industrial areas in the past couple of weeks but we don't have the budget to take on all of these projects. Without prompt sterilisation, their numbers will explode and there aren't enough resources for all these hungry mouths. The growing population might force the companies to engage pest control services. By then it would be too late and many lives will be lost. We need your help to catch them all! Please donate generously to the trapping, neutering and boarding of the industrial kitties. They deserve a chance to lead better lives! Our fundraising goal for 250 cats is $38,500. --- Here is a breakdown of the anticipated costs for these areas: 250 cats Average cost of sterilisation = $70 Boarding costs per cat per night = $16 per cat per night Average no. of nights of boarding per cat = 4 50 trapping sessions = $5000 250 * 70 + 250 * 4 * 16 + 5000 = 17500 + 16000 + 5000 = S$38,500 The cost of sterilisation is an average between the sterilisation costs for a male cat and a female cat with complications. The number of nights for boarding is an average of the minimum of 3 days and a maximum of 5 days. The number of trapping sessions is based on an average of 5 cats being taken in each trapping session. --- We also have many upcoming events this month to support our fundraiser, so do check out the events on our Facebook page for more details!
Japan Typhoon Hagibis Relief 2019
by Mercy Relief
Super Typhoon Hagibis slammed into Japan on Saturday, 12 October, with heavy rain causing landslides and dozens of rivers to burst their banks. As of 17 October, the death toll has risen to 77, 186 injured and 14 still missing and the figure is expected to continue rising. More than 37,000 households are still without power, and 133,000 homes have no water. Together with a local NGO, Mercy Relief will be conducting emergency hot meal distributions to the affected communities of Miyagi & Fukushima and we call for an urgent appeal for donations to reach our initial crowdfunding goal of $30,000 to bring the much needed aid to the affected communities. Disasters show no mercy but you can. Donate now. *Donations for foreign purposes are NOT eligible for tax-deductions. Photo credits: (Reuters/soezeyatun), (EPA/Jiji press), (AP Photo/Jae C.Hong)

You Can Help Break the Poverty Cycle
by Methodist Welfare Services
We are often told that poor people are poor because they make bad decisions, but have you ever thought they make bad decisions because they are poor? An NUS study of families on an MWS-initiated debt relief programme called GOOD (Getting Out of Debt) showed that the mental stress of chronic debt/poverty hurts a person's ability to think clearly and make good decisions. In a country as developed as ours, we find it hard to imagine a family struggling to pay for basic necessities like 3 square meals, school fees, medical care, or even rental for the roof over their heads. For some households, that is their reality, and it will take multiple generations for their family to break out of the poverty cycle, if at all. One of them is Ling's* family. She was diagnosed with cancer in 2010, and was declared medically unfit for work, leaving her husband as the sole breadwinner for a family of 6. Money woes led to marital conflicts which in turn affected the children. When Ling came under MWS' care, apart from receiving support through casework and counselling, the family was also placed on the MWS Family Development Programme which empowered them to save for their future. With improved finances and stability, Ling's relationship with her husband and children strengthened, and she was also able to focus on her own recovery. We see many families like Ling's. They often feel so trapped by their circumstances, they cannot see a way out. You can give them hope again.

Run for Joy - Schroders - South Zone
by Diana Chen for Home Nursing Foundation
LIVE Tracking will commence at 7am 19th Oct. https://protect-eu.mimecast.com/s/-Jb4CROyofD5Bl7UN69cX?domain=livetrack.garmin.com Life is full of unexpected twists and turns. As we go about our busy daily lives at work or in school, many families are facing the utmost challenges at home. These families, often wrought with both emotional and physical fatigue to care for their loved ones, many of whom are homebound patients from varied circumstances, need sustainable assistance in many ways. To commemorate the International Day of Older Persons on 1st October, we are collaborating with HNF to promote a Run for Joy Campaign. Through this campaign, we aim to raise funds with our running efforts for homebound elderly patients, and hope to engage the community to support HNF and bring joy to these elderly people through the HNF's Senior Care Centre in the communities. Please extend your kind donation in support to our running team South Zone where we hope through our sheer commitment to complete the designated 30km run, we can all pitch in a collaborative effort meaningfully to make a positive impact in improving the quality of life of HNF's elderly patients and their caregivers.
