Without a new Home, Grandpa Loh, 84-yo, will be displaced. He and Auntie Devi have been staying in St John Home for the Elderly for over 8 years.

St John Home's land lease on Wan Tho Avenue has expired in 2015. They were granted a fresh 30-year lease on an adjacent piece of land at 1 Willow Avenue. A new building has to be built to house the elderly residents.

Please help contribute towards their building fund. Your contributions will build homes for Uncle Loh, Auntie Devi and their friends! Please donate now!

About Campaign

Without a new Home, he will be displaced. Grandpa Loh, 84-yo, has been staying in our Shelter for more than 8 years.

We have occupied 69 Wan Tho Avenue since the Home's inception in 1958, however the lease on the land expired on 31 December 2015. We were granted a fresh 30-year lease beginning on 1 January 2016 for 3,300sqm, a smaller part of the land we have long occupied.

We have built a new five-storey Home with increased capacity of 150 elderly persons. Construction began in Nov 2018, and building work is now done after suspension of work from Apr 2020 to Sep 2020 due to Covid-19. It is now in the process of attaining the Temporary Occupation Permit (TOP). We look forward to moving in in Q4 2021! Meanwhile we are busy packing and preparing for the big move.

The new address is 1 Willow Avenue S347508.

As of Jan 2021, we are still short of S$2.5 million to support the progress payments to the contractors. Please donate generously so our elderly can continue to have a place call Home. Thank you!

About The Charity

Established in December 1958, St. John's Home for Elderly Persons is a Sheltered Home for elderly persons who are ambulant and aged above 60.

Our Mission is to provide shelter and care to meet the physical and spiritual needs of elderly persons who have no home and no children or close relatives with adequate resources to care for them.

The Home is open to all regardless of race or creed.

We are not a Government-subvented Home and depend largely on the public's generosity to enable us to continue our work. Your donations will be greatly appreciated.
