Our Campaign Story

ends 28 Feb 2023, 11:59 PM

Meet Sheryl (not her real name), a 4-year-old student from Canossaville Preschool (CPS). She was diagnosed with bilateral hearing loss at birth and fitted with cochlear implants, a small electronic device that electrically stimulates the cochlear nerve to help her improve her ability to hear.

Prior to attending CPS, Sheryl spoke mostly Mandarin at home. She had very little exposure to English, thereby struggling a lot to understand what was going on in her previous school. Her parents transferred her to CPS, hoping for her to pick up the language and be more proficient in it.

Canossaville offers holistic support for children with hearing loss like Sheryl through the Early Intervention and various therapies on-site. Thanks to our team of educators and therapists, Sheryl is now able to express herself in English using short sentences and participates actively in her class discussions.

Your donations will enable us to positively impact the lives of children like Sheryl and her family. Thank you for supporting us in this Season of Giving!

This is part of Canossaville's Season of Giving 2022 campaign! Donations shall be eligible for a 40% dollar matching by the Singapore Government and Tote Board up to cap of $250,000 per charity. Every dollar counts towards our work!

About Campaign

Every year, we all look forward to a special occasion. For some it could be a birthday, for others, a festive season such as Christmas. While we all celebrate these special occasions in our own ways, many also choose to give and share with others who need a little bit more help.

At Canossaville Children and Community Services, our programmes and services are open to our children and their families all year round, with priority given to those from disadvantaged backgrounds. Education is at the core of what we do and our Canossian Circle of Care provides the supporting structure to children through a preschool, after-school care as well as a child development unit.

This can only be made possible with the support of donors like yourself. We advocate for sustainable giving all year round to support all our programmes and services. In reality, donors tend to only donate at the end of the year during the season of giving.

Thank you for remembering us during this season of giving. Your special thoughts warm the hearts of our children and their families under our care.

Thanks to the support of Tote Board's enhanced fund-raising programme, all donations to the Season of Giving campaign shall be eligible for 40% matching by the Singapore Government and Tote Board up to cap of $250,000 per charity. Every dollar counts towards our work!
