Our Campaign Story

ends 30 Aug 2022, 11:59 PM

Your GIFT creates real IMPACT!

Sandra and Francis (not their real names) are siblings who attend Canossaville Student Care (CSC). They love the time spent there and have benefitted academically. CSC provides children who may come from vulnerable or challenging family backgrounds, a safe haven to learn alongside their peers after school.

Sandra and Francis' family faced financial difficulties, and have accumulated more than $3,000 arrears on their student care fees. Canossaville's social workers learnt about the family's challenges and the rocky relationship between the parents, and they recommended for the children to continue attending CSC for their overall well-being.

Canossaville arranged for the family to receive fees support and found sponsors to clear their arrears. Our social workers continue to work with the family to stabilise the parents' relationship and assist them in overcoming their difficulties. Through a holistic approach, we hope to empower their parents and eventually create a conducive environment for their children.

Your donations can provide children like Sandra and Francis equal access to after-school support so that they can thrive. Thank you for being a never-ending gift to our children and their families.

Canossaville celebrates our 81st Anniversary this year and we thank all our supporters and donors for your GIFT that impacts the children and their families entrusted in our care.

Canossaville started as an orphanage on 15 August 1941 at Sallim Road, in response to the increasingly urgent need to serve the poor in the Geylang-Aljunied area.

Over the years, the Canossian Sisters and the children endured a war, relocation to Malaysia, expansion, and finally as Canossaville Children and Community Services today. Mother Foundress, St Magdalene, always said that we must change with the sign of the times. As such, Canossaville will continue to grow and strengthen our support for the children, families, and the communities.

The proceeds from this campaign will ensure that we continue to provide our essential programmes and services to our children and families from all races and faiths, persist in providing early intervention support for our children with hearing loss, and grow and expand our assistance to those in need.

Your GIFT today and support for our cause makes a world of difference.

Join us today and be a Never-Ending Gift!

Thank you!
