Our Campaign Story

ends 31 Aug 2022, 11:59 PM

Meet Darius (not his real name), a Primary 2 student enrolled in Canossaville Student Care (CSC).

Darius grew up in a Mandarin-speaking household. When he first joined CSC, he found communicating in English a challenge which resulted in a lack of focus and confidence in his studies.

Thanks to the support and patience of his CSC teachers, Darius made significant improvements in his language and communication skills over the past year and a half.

Sadly, Darius' family experienced tragedy when his mother suffered a cancer relapse. The high medical bills meant that the family faced great financial difficulty, causing them to struggle to afford Darius' CSC fees. His family considered pulling him out of CSC to ease their financial burden but hesitated to do so as they recognised the improvement that Darius was making.

Thanks to the support from many partners and donors, Canossaville was able to assist in covering Darius' fees and help ease the burden faced by the family.

Your donations can help children like Darius and their families. It is crucial that our services are accessible to every child regardless of family background to help them achieve their potential in life. Thank you for being a never-ending gift to our children and families!

Canossaville celebrates our 81st Anniversary this year and we thank all our supporters and donors for your GIFT that impacts the children and their families entrusted in our care.

Canossaville started as an orphanage on 15 August 1941 at Sallim Road, in response to the increasingly urgent need to serve the poor in the Geylang-Aljunied area.

Over the years, the Canossian Sisters and the children endured a war, relocation to Malaysia, expansion, and finally as Canossaville Children and Community Services today. Mother Foundress, St Magdalene, always said that we must change with the sign of the times. As such, Canossaville will continue to grow and strengthen our support for the children, families, and the communities.

The proceeds from this campaign will ensure that we continue to provide our essential programmes and services to our children and families from all races and faiths, persist in providing early intervention support for our children with hearing loss, and grow and expand our assistance to those in need.

Your GIFT today and support for our cause makes a world of difference.

Join us today and be a Never-Ending Gift!

Thank you!
