I am turning 4 in December and with the help of my mummy & daddy, I would like to be a blessing to other children too. I will be going around giving hugs to get donations for The Children's Aid Society. Please support my campaign too!
Melrose Home aims to nurture a supportive home away from home environment for its residents, and has the capacity to provide quality residential care for 80 disadvantaged children and teenagers between the ages of 3 to 18 years.
The Home requires a monthly average of about $120,000 for its operations and about 40% of this cost is provided by Ministry of Social & Family Development as a grant based on the number of children in residence.
However, the major part of the Home's operational costs is funded by donations from corporations, organised groups and well-wishing individuals.
Continued support from donors is needed to provide quality residential care and daily meals, therapeutic and developmental services, enrichment and recreational programmes, and facilities management for our residents.
