Our Campaign Storyends 15 Aug 2022, 11:59 PM
As part of the National University of Singapore Student Union's (NUSSU's) annual Rag and Flag event, Tembusu Flag aims to raise awareness of societal issues by actively engaging and empowering the Tembusu Residential College community, the NUS community and everyone outside of the NUS community to participate in acts of kindness and give back to society.
This year, we are working with the Foundation of Rotary Clubs (Singapore) Limited (FRCS) to support humanitarian and education projects locally.
Launched in Q3 of 2021, FRCS's new Eldercare and Caregivers Centre (ECC) is a division of the Foundation of Rotary Clubs (Singapore) Limited (FRCS). The Centre offers physical space custom-fitted for the elderly and their caregivers in Bukit Gombak to gather, socialize and receive training/support services. FRCS ECC will serve as the go-to-point for all seniors in the community, which provides active ageing and social enhancement programmes, befriending opportunities and information for support care. For caregivers, it is a place to seek information and training on caregiving, join support groups to share best practices, receive counselling, and find resources to aid the elderly who may need special care.
Proceeds from Tembusu Flag 2022 will help to fund operation expenditures of FRCS ECC, and to provide support for the older generations through their golden years.
