Our Campaign Story

ends 31 Aug 2022, 11:59 PM

Meet Neam Cing, a Senior Teacher in Canossaville Student Care (CSC). In her 10 years as a student care teacher, she has encountered students from a variety of backgrounds, and learnt to care for each one of them.

One child stood out for her after all these years. Rose (not her real name) attended student care throughout primary school and was indifferent towards learning. Despite the difficulties faced in getting through to Rose, Neam Cing did not give up and ensured that Rose was cared for and attended to. Eventually, Rose graduated and left the student care.

To Neam Cing's surprise, Rose came back year after year on Teacher's Day to visit Neam Cing and to express her appreciation and gratitude. It was then when Neam Cing realised that every action, though perhaps initially unreciprocated, was appreciated and remembered.

Your donations enable the work of our staff as Never-Ending Gifts to the children and their families under our care! Thank you!

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!
