Shan You is a charity that has been doing good work in Singapore for over 20 years. Shan You provides:
1. Social services - free meals, food ration, activity center for seniors at their Eunos Crescent location
2. Counseling - professional counseling for families
3. Professional training - for healthcare and social services sectors
4. Education - educating the public in mental health issues
Shan You is in my neighbourhood, so I actually "see" the impact they make. In addition to free meals, and the activity center for senior citizens, they also do food rations and organise volunteer events like free haircuts for senior citizens.
Shan You serves free lunch to 80. I used to see senior citizens queuing for lunch, but with the pandemic hitting the financially vulnerable hardest, there are now younger people with children in tow who come for lunch. They have also increased the meal service to dinners and Saturday lunch when they have enough funding. If any of you are interested in the free meal service, you can see them around 11am on weekdays.
I am making an appeal to my colleagues and friends to SPONSOR LUNCH FOR 1 MONTH. To put thing in perspective, their daily lunch budget is about $200 for 80 people, which is less than the omakase dinner for one person at Takayama Japanese Restaurant. We can sponsor lunch for a month with just $4000.
If you have questions about Shan You, please visit their website at https://www.shanyou.org.sg, or check with me.
Shan You Wellness Community has for the past eleven years warms the hearts and tummy of our beneficiaries who enjoy our free meals. It helps to bring love and smiles to our community especially those in need in time of COVID 19. Last year with your contribution we have served 12,983 beneficiaries. Your generous donation will help us to continue to bring smiles to them. Please donate for those who needed it.
