Our Campaign Story

ends 02 Mar 2018, 11:59 PM

Behind the smiles of the transformed Nicholas, lies a past which he now proudly tells of.

"What happened in the past does not matter. What matters is how we move on from here."

Nicholas was once deeply entrenched in various vices since the age of 13. His entire teenage phase was drained away by violence, smoking, drug consumption and many other illegal activities. He was first arrested for drug consumption at the age of 21 and was being sent to Drug Rehabilitation Centre for one year. Three months after release, he was being convicted of drug and other related offences, sentenced to imprisonment for 4 years and 2 months. He tried to change but found it to be an insurmountable task, until he met Johnny during a Prison Counselling session.

Johnny became his mentor, walking him through the phase of recovery and rebuilding his life. Nicholas recalls spending time with Johnny as one of his favorite as a resident in The New Charis Mission (TNCM). The advices and encouragement that Johnny gave helped him to find strength to continue the journey of recovery, even during the toughest moments.

With a heart filled with gratitude for the guidance given to him, Nicholas is now serving as a Brother Keeper in TNCM. He helps to mentor new residents upon admission to TNCM by giving to them what he had previously received.

Nicholas' life was completely changed as a result of a mentor's giving. You too, can make a difference today by giving because #ToGiveIsFulfilling.

About Campaign

In conjunction with the Festive Seasons, The New Charis Mission (TNCM) will be having a series of fundraising campaigns to generate funds to support our programme outreaches & beneficiaries. It also serves as an opportunity to remind us about giving back to our community, reaching out to the dark alleys to help those who are trapped and are unable to break free on their own.

From everyone at TNCM, we believe in hope and advocate change. Even more so, we aim to change lives and habits for the better, to contribute to a better society. It goes as simply as this: 'help a stranger, make a friend; help a friend, build a family; help a family, leave a legacy'. Lives do impacts lives, and we know that YOU can be that change maker.

TNCM aims to raise $50,000 from this series of campaign to support and help over 13,000 beneficiaries, ranging from elderly to youths-at-risk, many of which are served through existing programmes and services such as preventive programmes, befriending sessions, psycho-education and many others.

Join us as we take one step closer towards creating an impact and the ripple effect that follows after it. Your support will make a positive impact in their lives and others.

About The Charity

YOU can be a part of HOPE & CHANGE!
Donate and join us to reach the disadvantaged and the marginalised in our society to bring them new hope and opportunities. We enable and equip them through our targetted programmes, tools and refuge.

HALFWAY HOUSE: Our rehabilitation programme provides restoration for newly released ex-offenders and walk-in individuals who are seeking to change their lives. Here, they learn how to rebuild their lives and families, and then contribute back to society.

YOUTH: Our transformed ex-offenders move upstream from aftercare to preventive work with structured mentoring programmes to reach our next generation in schools.

PRISON: We seek to bring tangible hope and encouragement to those still in prison. Our counselling programme enables them to lead lives liberated from gangs and drugs and survive beyond bars.

ELDERLY: Our objective is to bring joy, comfort and meaning to the lives of our aged poor. Our regular visits, provisions, haircuts, home cleaning and refurbishments have touched many lives. Our team have moved beyond the weekly visitations to transforming the homes of these elderly, giving them a better living condition.
