Our Campaign Story

ends 08 Aug 2020, 11:59 PM

I worked in Care Corner and have been deeply impacted by the hearts of the leaders and staff in this organisation. My heart goes out to the people we served and I hope to do my small part in giving back and sharing some of my thoughts with the community. I hope to raise awareness that engaging in charity is not just about giving back and feeling good about yourselves. It's also about giving dignity, providing resources and opportunities and empowering those who are vulnerable. It's not just poverty issues, there are also people who grapple with mental health issues, disabilities especially invisible ones, seniors who face isolation, fatherlessness etc. Let's rise up as a community to lend our strengths and contribute with what little we have in our hands.

I love running ever since I was in school. Running has been therapeutic and has helped me see many sides of local and overseas communities. Today due to a bad back as well as being slightly overweight, it has not been easy to get back into regular running. Thus I would like to commit to running at least 10km every day for 55 days from 15 Jun to 8 Aug to raise funds for Care Corner. I hope to raise at least $10 for each day of 10km I run. Please cheer and spur me on for this 55 days journey by your generous donation and check out https://www.carecorner.org.sg/carevolution.

About The Charity

Established since 1981, Care Corner Singapore is a non-profit organisation that has 33 service centres island-wide. For more than 39 years, the organisation has been serving the isolated and disadvantaged in Singapore through our extensive services, such as helping families in need, youths at-risk, special needs children, children from low-income families, seniors and counselling needs.

The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the socio-economic situation globally and in Singapore. It is common for many to feel isolated at home, deprived from dining out, or feeling anxious for their well-being. Our service users, who are the disadvantaged and marginalised group in our community, will face even greater challenges as the situation escalates to be more challenging.

It is our vision to provide Care to every corner in Singapore, to reach out to the vulnerable and needy in spite of all the constraints and uncertainties. Your generous donation will support families that are struggling to meet their daily needs, children with learning challenges, individuals with mental health challenges, and youths-at-risk especially during this difficult time. Everyone can do their part to extend a helping hand by donating generously to help the community we serve.
