Our Campaign Story

ends 10 Dec 2017, 11:59 PM

Many elderly persons feel trapped in their ageing bodies and minds. Life has become a challenging marathon for them. Let's remember them as we break barriers in life. On 3 Dec 17, i will attempt to run 10,000m within 40min. For every metre that i run, could we raise a dollar to support Lions Befrienders that runs active ageing programmes for the elderly. Hope you can join in the giving as i journey towards #scms 2017. Thank you for your generosity!

About The Charity

Established in 1995, LB has more than 25 years of experience in befriending and caring for seniors in order for them to age in place in the community. Over the years, LB strives to address the varied needs of more than 86,000 seniors by adopting a senior-centric approach in its eldercare services. Leveraging on the support of some 1,000 regular volunteers, we actively engage more than 6,000 at-risk seniors via a spectrum of integrated eldercare service from preventive to intervention through comprehensive programmes, including social, emotional, mental and physical, to improve their quality of life.

Amid the challenges in the eldercare landscape, LB undertakes constant review and adjustment to its programmes and services. Under our Community Outreach arm, we currently operate 10 Senior Activity Centres, 3 Cluster Support, 2 Senior Group Homes and Home Personal Care services. Our Befriending arm extends island-wide befriending services to socially isolated seniors. For its exemplary disclosure and corporate governance practices, LB was conferred the Charity Transparency Award by the Charity Council in 2016 and 2017.
