Our Campaign Storyends 19 Aug 2017, 11:59 PM
Singapore is blessed with high living standards. It also means that some of our brothers and sisters may face financial challenge at one point or another.
Although we may not be millionaires, we have some capacity to share what we have received. It may not be much. It could be as little as $10, the rough equivalent of a bowl of dumpling noodle soup at a restaurant, or two value meals at a fast-food joint. This same $10 can help someone in need to get a haircut.
When we put our "five loaves and two fishes" together, with a joyous heart that gives praise to God for the blessings that we have received, we will be amazed at the impact of our united effort.
Caritas Singapore is the social mission arm of the Catholic Archdiocese of Singapore. We coordinate and facilitate the Church's social mission, working with 25 Catholic charity and community organisations under our umbrella, whose charitable work cover a broad spectrum of needy in the community, regardless of race, religion or status. This includes the poor, families, youth at risk, children, prisoners, people living with HIV/AIDS, people requiring palliative care, migrant workers, overseas poor, and those who are physically and mentally challenged. Collectively, we serve over 50,000 beneficiaries.
