Our Campaign Story

ends 17 Dec 2016, 11:59 PM

Thank you for taking two minutes out of your day to read this - I won't keep you for long!

It's that heart-warming time of year when we are all thinking about the time we will spend with our loved ones and all the lovely gifts we will buy for them.

Sadly, not every child can even spend Christmas in a safe environment. I am running the Standard Chartered Half Marathon here in Singapore on the 4th December in the hope that I can raise some money to give the children of Canossaville Children's home a brighter Christmas.

There are 68 children and I would love to raise $150 per child to do something nice with them on one of the days that I am with them or to buy them a gift or something that they need for school/general.

Big or small - anything that you can give will be very gratefully appreciated by the children and myself.

100% of your donations via this page will go directly to the Children's home.

Thank you again for reading,
Ellie

About The Charity

Canossaville Children and Community Services (Canossaville) runs an inclusive Student Care Centre in the Aljunied-MacPherson area. Our programmes cater to both mainstream children, as well as those with mild-to-moderate additional needs, giving priority to the poorest of the poor living in the lower income neighbourhoods. We are open to all faiths and races.

Aged between seven to twelve years old, our children are taught values and skills to prepare them for life. Under our "Formation of the Heart" programme, they are nurtured to be persons of integrity, committed to God and caring for others. Within a safe and value rich environment, every child is empowered to develop their God-given talents to the fullest.

We also have a Child Development Unit set up this year, with a team of specialists comprising Social Workers, an Educational Psychologist, a Speech Language Therapist, and an Occupational Therapist to support children with additional needs.

Founded by the Canossian Sisters in 1941, Canossaville is supported by the Ministry of Social and Family Development, National Council of Social Service and the Early Childhood Development Agency. It is also an approved Institute of Public Character and is authorized to receive tax-deductible donations.
