Our Campaign Story

Lions Club of Singapore Katong will be doing fund raising for Lions Befrienders.

We would like to invite you to join us in this charity event and to help fight social isolation amongst the seniors in Singapore.

Flag Day has always been one of the key fundraising projects to engage with the community. Due to COVID-19, we are unable to hold physical fundraising. The success of this event depends tremendously on the support from everyone.

About Campaign

Do you know with your $50, you can help prevent loneliness and depression in a senior?

We have witnessed 4 attempted suicides since the COVID-19 pandemic, and we have also noted the gradual decline in emotional and mental health of our seniors.

Your act of kindness will enable us to provide tools for virtual befriending, telehealth, telemedicine and digital clinics for our seniors, food rations of the essential items, customized programmes and activities during this difficult time. This is to improve their quality of life though preventive to intervention through holistic programmes, with focus in social, emotional, physical and mental health.

This pandemic has also severely affected all our fundraising events, not to mention the annual Flag Day, and donation. We sincerely seek for your generosity to help us sustain our services to these 6,000 needy and vulnerable seniors, who majority live in rented blocks.

Stand with us to restore the life of our seniors so that they can live actively, healthily and happily in our community.
