Our Campaign Storyends 30 Jun 2023, 11:59 PM
Dyna-Mac Engineering Services Pte Ltd, a company that believes in giving back to the community, is committed to take the initiative to rally its staff and corporate partners to launch a fund-raising campaign to support the Singapore Christian Home. This not-for-profit nursing home has been providing medical and nursing care to the destitute and people from very low-income families for the past 63 years.
Unfortunately, the Home has been facing increasing operational costs in the last 2 years due to expanded services and the pandemic. It has also had to carry out various capital improvement projects as the current site at Sembawang Crescent is already 10 years old. As a result, the Home has been incurring budget shortfalls in the last 2 financial years.
The fundraising campaign aims to raise funds to support the Home's core mission of providing medical and nursing care to those in need, regardless of their background. The funds raised will also help the Home carry out necessary capital improvement projects to improve the living environment of the residents.
Dyna-Mac targets to raise $100,000 to help the Home in this challenging times so that they can continue their mission to care for the vulnerable.
About The Charity
Singapore Christian Home set up in the 1960's, is a not-for-profit nursing home, committed to the care of destitute and persons from low income families with long term medical and nursing needs.
In providing long term, respite and crisis-situation care, the Home offers :
- avenues of care option for frail and sick persons, regardless of age, with complex nursing care requirements, financial difficulties or no family support;
- care-givers respite to recharge or to attend to their personal needs; and
- assistance to families when normal care arrangements to the dependent members are disrupted
The Home's adult residents are largely 70 years and above, with a handful of centurions. They require constant care and supervision due to multiple chronic conditions.
In 2017, the Home, in response to the growing needs of medically fragile children and young persons whose families are unable to provide them with the level of care required, dedicated a ward for care of this cohort.
Each resident in the Home have long term care needs that become increasingly complex with increased frailty. The Home is often the place they will be in till they pass on. A multi-disciplinary team, complemented by dedicated volunteers, render constant care, emotional, psychological, social, pastoral and financial support to residents and their families.
Your donation to the Home will enable us to support many more individuals and families in need.
