Our Campaign Story

ends 29 Nov 2021, 11:59 PM

We have been reading stories of isolated seniors passing away alone at home and their bodies found as long as 2 years later. With the ageing population, there is a great need to reach out to the seniors in the community, some of whom may have poor social support. Our 7 Senior Activity Centres in MWS are reaching out to the elderly in the community by assessing their psycho-social-emotional and physical/health needs. We encourage them to age actively by joining our porgrammes and link them up with community agencies to meet their needs. We also run a befriending programme to reduce the isolation of the seniors. Join us in this meaningful work by donating to MWS!

We hope each runner will help us raise $500 so that collectively we can reach our $600,000 fundraising goal!

This is also an opportunity for those who are celebrating their 40th birthday to mark the milestone by running for a meaningful cause.

About The Charity

Founded 40 years ago in 1981 and registered as an Institution of a Public Character, Methodist Welfare Services (MWS) is a multi-service organisation that manages 20 centres and outreach programmes across Singapore.

We serve people in need regardless of their race and religion. Our critical services support low-income and/or distressed families, children from low-income families, at-risk youths, the destitute, sick and/or frail elderly, and the socially isolated.

We enable all to have life to the full by reducing poverty, alleviating the strains and stresses of modern life, helping the elderly to age in place and live with dignity, nurturing the potential of disadvantaged children and rehabilitating at-risk youths.
