Our Campaign Storyends 17 Jan 2016, 11:59 PM
For every $10 which you donated, you will be buying a meal for a neighbour and helping to support programmes at Agape Village (AV), an initiative of Caritas Singapore.
AV, located at 7A Lorong 8 Toa Payoh, is a one-stop social services hub for the poor and the marginalised. Caritas charities operating at AV provides access to financial assistance, counselling, therapy, respite care, free legal aid and skills training. We serve everyone, regardless of their race and religion. Programmes at AV include youth outreach, day activities for adults with special needs and Young-at-Heart (YAH) training for senior citizens.
For this campaign we will distribute lunch coupons to the lower income residents in the neighbourhood and invite them for a meal at our cafe, as well as participate in our activities at AV.
I hope you will join me to bring some some cheer to at least 500 of our friends in need.
