Our Campaign Story

ends 31 Aug 2022, 11:59 PM

Your GIFT creates real IMPACT!

Meet Rayden (not his real name), a 5-year-old student enrolled in Canossaville Preschool.

At birth, Rayden was diagnosed with profound hearing loss in both ears. When he turned one, Rayden was fitted with cochlear implants, a small electronic device that electrically stimulates the cochlear nerve. While this helps to improve his ability to hear, Rayden still requires specialised support to help him fulfil his potential in life.

As a student in Canossaville Preschool, Rayden is part of the inclusive programme and has access to our early intervention teachers, and speech and language therapists onsite. In the two years that he has been with us, Rayden has grown to be a joyful, friendly, and confident boy.

Rayden's parents are very appreciative for the care that his teachers and therapists have given him. Despite the challenges of raising a child with special needs, his parents continue to rely on Jesus for strength and comfort, and seek encouragement in St Paul's words to never stop praying - (1 Thessalonians 5:17).

Your kind support will enable us to provide targeted intervention support for children with hearing loss like Rayden.

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!
