Our Campaign Story

ends 30 Jul 2021, 11:59 PM

Sunflower Preschool @ Balestier is raising funds for St Luke's ElderCare (SLEC).

With the Covid-19 pandemic still on-going, SLEC continues to deliver a full range of integrated services and programmes for their elders including maintenance daycare, day rehabilitation programmes and services designed to benefit elders who have suffered physical disabilities, as well as the frail and lonely who have no one to look after them during working hours. They are relying on donations to continue to provide services to their elders.

Sunflower Preschool @ Balestier has since embarked on the Start Small, Dream Big, a project that was launched in 2015 as part of SG50 and the President's Challenge 15th anniversary, to promote character building by instilling the spirit of giving and values, such as care for others, humility, kindness and compassion. We appeal to you to join us in this mission to build upon SLEC services, enrich the lives of each and every elder and ensure they live well and age well with dignity.

During this difficult period, we hope that our children will show compassion and love to the elders. We seek your support in helping us reach S$3,000 and food donations that we have pledged to raise for SLEC. This campaign page is open to parents, teachers, relatives and friends of our children who would like to help raise funds for SLEC.

Please contact our centre manager for enquiries.

About The Charity

St Luke's ElderCare (SLEC) is a non-profit eldercare service provider serving more than 5,000 elders through a full range of integrated services and programmes for our elders that include centre-based, community-based, home-based and residential-based services. We currently operate 23 senior care centres and a nursing home in Ang Mo Kio. We continuously expand to meet the demands of eldercare in Singapore.

Mr Theodore Ding suffered a health scare in September 2016 while in China. He was urgently admitted into hospital and after a series of medical tests, he was diagnosed with Parkinsons Disease.

In October 2019, Mr Ding, who is on full financial support, started attending maintenance day care and physiotherapy sessions at SLEC Telok Blangah Centre. With the increasing loss of mobility, the physiotherapy sessions that he attends twice a week helps slow down the deterioration of his condition. Therapists at SLEC taught him simple exercises to practice when he is at home during the weekends.

"I am most grateful to the team at SLEC. They are a close knitted team with everyone working hand in hand to ensure that every elder is well taken care of. Everyone in SLEC has been most friendly and dedicated in making this place feel like home for all the elders here."
