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.

Grace Overflowing - A Special Concert to Raise Funds for SAAC
by St. Andrew's Autism Centre for St. Andrew's Mission Hospital
Hope is the bridge to the world of autism. Love and care expressed through patience and the time it may take to understand and appreciate each person with autism as special and unique, can be deeply felt. It can impact the world in which we live, a world that chooses to be kind to and accepts those with special needs. Persons with autism need our care and support to lead dignified and meaningful lives. It is important that they access education, training and services. Your gift today will help us at SAAC to continue to enrich the lives of the 382 school students, adult clients and residents with moderate to severe autism in our care. Cantate Domino, which translates to 'Sing To The Lord', is an interdenominational ensemble of experienced choristers that has raised funds for many churches and organisations in Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia. This year, we are privileged to have them perform a special benefit concert for us, and raise funds for our services to people with autism. The concert will feature guest conductor Eudy Palaruan, pianist Serena Lai and harpist Dora Lim, and classic hymns like His Robe for Mine, Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus, How Great Thou Art, and more choral favourites. It will be held at Chapel of Christ the Redeemer on Saturday, 28 September 2019, at 7.00pm. Admission is complimentary. We are hoping to raise $50,000 through donations for SAAC, which will be taken at the end of the concert. Please reserve your seats on our website: www.saac.org.sg

Help the Sick and Old Animals Live Meaningful Lives
by Animal Lovers League
Dear ALL Supporters, Our gratitude to you for faithfully following us all these years and your generosity to our rescued animals without which we wouldn't be. We would not have had to appeal for help repeatedly if we have had the hardness of hearts to euthanise the old and sick ones but we couldn't and could only hope and pray you will continue to support our "No-Kill" Policy. We are providing refuge and a second chance to many of them for they have no place in our society and environment for reasons aplenty. Animal Lovers League Shelter will not cease to exist with your continued support. Please continue to support us through this journey to let them have their right to live.
Relay Majulah - Lim Teck Yin Running To Represent Sport SG For A Better Tomorrow
by President's Challenge

It also aims to unite the community, for the community; and tell the inspiring stories of people with indomitable spirit, who live life to the full and live life without limits. Lim Teck Yin is the CEO of Sport Singapore. He retired as a brigadier-general from the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) after 30 years of military service. Lim was a former national water polo player with seven Southeast Asian Games medals, and a recipient of the Singapore National Olympic Council Team of the Year Award for 1986, 1989 and 1991. I believe that sport is a great platform for us to challenge ourselves to live our best. Since young I have cherished the camaraderie and encouragement from playing with teammates. This has been a fundamental part of my growth and development through the years. The future of Singapore depends on all of us appreciating how blessed we are to call Singapore home and our willingness to come together to prevail against the challenges that undermine our success. Relay Majulah is not just fund raising but a rallying call to come together to uplift our fellow Singaporeans in need. I look forward to joining hands with like-minded people to affirm that we can achieve much for Singapore and our people by working together.
Relay Majulah - Gan Kok Boon Running To Encourage Cancer Survivors
by President's Challenge
About Relay Majulah A ground-up initiative to form a 200-runners team to conquer 2,000km over 200 hours (2-10 Nov 2019) to raise funds for President's Challenge and its 67 supported charities; and to commemorate Singapore's 200 years. It also aims to unite the community, for the community; and tell the inspiring stories of people with indomitable spirit, who live life without limits. Gan Kok Boon is a Managing Director with Accenture Singapore (Health and Public Services). He is a cancer survivor, having been diagnosed with Stage 3 Nasopharyngeal Cancer (NPC) in 2014 at the age of 35. The cancer "experience" changed his fundamental outlook in life, and he is more deliberate in living the life he wants. He now enjoys going for slow jogs, cycling and fishing off Singapore waters. I am still suffering from the long-term side effects of cancer treatments - my salivary glands are damaged so I wake up every day with my tongue stuck to the palette due to the lack of saliva. My speech is impacted due to nerve damage and I am on lifetime medication. Yet, I feel so blessed being able to survive and to live this life. I am motivated to take part in this relay to encourage cancer survivors to press on. The survival journey is lifelong but this journey we have left is not just about overcoming the disease. Let's be bold, make a change, do something you are happy about, do something meaningful. Let's make our lives count for ourselves, and if you can, for others too.
Relay Majulah - Fanny Koh Running To Empower Lives And Safeguard Singapore - Our Home
by President's Challenge
About Relay Majulah Relay Majulah is a ground-up initiative to form a 200-runners team to conquer 2,000km over 200 hours (2-10 Nov 2019) to raise funds for President's Challenge and its 67 supported charities; and to commemorate Singapore's 200 years. It also aims to unite the community, for the community; and tell the inspiring stories of people with indomitable spirit, who live life to the full and live life without limits. As a police officer, I have seen all walks of society and therefore appreciate the vulnerability of lives. I had been deployed to disaster zones to assist in victim identification efforts. I witnessed how victims and families could find strength and resilience within their community amidst the most trying circumstances. I hope that in a small way, in peacetime, my participation will encourage fellow Singaporeans to come forth to show care for the needy community. Running has a special meaning for me. I run to keep fit and to recce the area of operations for major events. My favourite route is the stretch of the riverside from Robertson Quay to MBS, where I get to see a beautiful view of Singapore as I run towards daybreak. The scene reminds me why I wanted to be a police officer - to protect a home that can be easily taken for granted amidst peaceful times. Together, we can make a difference in our community and safeguard this place we call Home. Every dollar counts and goes into empowering lives. Please support me by giving your donation now!
