Our Campaign Story

ends 31 May 2017, 11:59 PM

The Singapore Power Heartware Fund (SPFH) supports over 24,000 beneficiaries through more than 20 senior programmes under Community Chest. These include befriending; home help services, such as meal delivery, assistance with medical appointments; caregiver support; and community homes. Your donation to the SPHF will help many seniors in need, like Mr Toh Heok Khin, age gracefully in the community.

EXTEND A HELPING HAND

When cysts started growing on his nose some 20 years ago, Mr Toh Heok Khin became self-conscious of his appearance. He would avoid eye contact when out in the streets. Overwhelmed by feelings of helplessness, the retiree kept to himself, not knowing who to turn to.

Help came along when Lions Befrienders volunteer Mrs Linda Koh knocked on his door. Over many visits, Linda struck up a friendship with Mr Toh and was eventually able to arrange for his cysts removal at a hospital.

Mr Toh's life is now changed. Inspired by the difference Linda made in his life, 86-year-old Mr Toh has been a senior helper with Lions Befrienders ever since. Together with Linda, they regularly distribute food to lonely and frail seniors in the neighbourhood.

Lions Befrienders extends a hand of friendship to seniors like Mr Toh. Their services like befriending, running of Senior Activity Centres and monitoring of vulnerable seniors, enable many of them who live alone to cope with daily activities and live independently in their own communities.

About NPO

We are a fund-raising and engagement arm of the National Council of Social Service (NCSS). As such, our role and purpose are aligned with NCSS to ensure that every person has the opportunity to live a life of dignity to his or her fullest potential within our society. We raise funds to support social service organisations so that they can do what they are best at - caring for and serving the less advantaged.

Community Chest was established in 1983 with a simple yet vital mission - to raise funds for the many social service organisations of the nation. It is about raising funds from the community for the community in need.

Social service organisations supported by Community Chest are then able to do what they are best at - providing critical social service programmes to help children with special needs, youths-at-risk, adults with disabilities, frail and lonely elderly, families facing difficulties and persons with mental health issues.

Over the years, Community Chest has built an enduring trust and partnership with many organisations, foundations and individuals and raised millions of much-needed dollars that enabled us to care for our beneficiaries.

At the heart of it all is our Patron-in-Chief, President Tony Tan Keng Yam, who will be lending his support to our fund-raising social service organisations.
