Our Campaign Story

ends 10 Oct 2021, 11:59 PM

Lonely and 'waiting to die,' said an elderly woman (Mdm.H). With the pandemic, many seniors are increasingly isolated and deprived of social interaction with some finding themselves among the ranks of chronically lonely. Imagine reaching a ripe old age and being lonelier than ever on a daily basis.

With this in mind, Team Campfire is working to raise funds for Lions Befrienders, a non-profit organization that keeps the seniors holistically engaged to ensure that they age in a place with community participation.

Similar to how a campfire fosters familial bonds, we strive to bring warmth, love and joy to lonely seniors through hosting a virtual concert and providing virtual befriending sessions. We are also working to spread awareness on senior isolation through our podcast clips, tiktok challenges and short movie series.

All donations from this website as well as our merchandise sales (which you can check out at @team.campfire on Instagram) will be utilised to provide care packs for seniors in Lions Befrienders Support Group Home and support seniors in the digitalisation drive. Your kind contribution, regardless of the amount, will have a significant impact on improving their well-being.

When we were young, they were there for us. When they grow old, don't leave them alone. By making a donation, let them know that they are not alone.

Thank you and we look forward to your support!

About The Charity

Established in 1995, LB has more than 25 years of experience in befriending and caring for seniors in order for them to age in place in the community. Over the years, LB strives to address the varied needs of more than 86,000 seniors by adopting a senior-centric approach in its eldercare services. Leveraging on the support of some 1,000 regular volunteers, we actively engage more than 6,000 at-risk seniors via a spectrum of integrated eldercare service from preventive to intervention through comprehensive programmes, including social, emotional, mental and physical, to improve their quality of life.

Amid the challenges in the eldercare landscape, LB undertakes constant review and adjustment to its programmes and services. Under our Community Outreach arm, we currently operate 10 Senior Activity Centres, 3 Cluster Support, 2 Senior Group Homes and Home Personal Care services. Our Befriending arm extends island-wide befriending services to socially isolated seniors.
