Our Campaign Story

“Look, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son,
and they shall name him Emmanuel,”
- Matthew 1:23

Sunday 28 November 2021 marks the start of Advent, a time of preparation for the coming of Jesus at Christmas.

Jesus, the Emmanuel, had a great love and compassion for the poor. He lived among them, cared for them, and reminded them of their dignity in a society that shunned them.

Today, Canossaville carries on the mission He started. Founded by the Canossian Sisters in 1941, Canossaville has been serving children and their families for the last 80 years in Singapore. With the first option for the poor, we provide support for the vulnerable within the Canossian Village through education, social and psychological aid, as well as those in the wider MacPherson community.

In this time of anticipation for Christ's coming, join us on our mission and partner us in caring for our poor. Help us to bring the love of Christ to all!

Your contributions will go towards ensuring that we can sustainably provide our services to all, especially those who are most in need. We do not want affordability to be a barrier to aid, and we need your help to continue providing our essential programmes and services to our children and their families.

Join us in spreading the joy of Christ this Christmas!

Thank you!

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.

We acknowledge this and humbly seek your kind support for us to build up enough donations to sustain our programmes and services through the year.

Thank you for not forgetting us during this season of giving. Your special thoughts warm the hearts of our children and their families under our care.
