Our Campaign Story

"Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me." Matt 25:40

In these challenging and difficult times, many are struggling to survive. To help bring hope and healing to the 4,000 incarcerated, ex-prisoners, and their families, I will once again partner with Lakeside Family Services to raise funds.

It gives me great joy to support the Walking With You - A Million Steps campaign.

Every step counts, every dollar counts to help Lakeside Family Services reach their target of $300,000/-.

May I once again please appeal for your support for this worthy cause?

Thank you very much.

Margie

About Campaign

For the third year in a row, Lakeside Family Services is organising A Million Steps to raise funds for our programmes serving (ex-)inmates and their families.

We hope to continue walking with (ex-)inmates in their journey of reintegration: Imparting life skills, preparing them for life after release, guiding them as they navigate challenges, and providing referral services for them and their families.

We will also be expanding our work to include aftercare services such as employment support through job matching and career coaching, plus family bonding activities to strengthen family ties.

Lakeside provides a wide range of services, including:

1. Family Resource Centre, a one-stop centre for inmates and their families

2. Case Management Support for inmates on the Work Release Scheme

3. Life skills workshops through our Release Preparation Programme

4. Televisit services for families to visit their loved ones in prison through our teleconferencing facility

5. Holistic programmes for financial assistance, family bonding, and casework support after release

To emphasise the importance of family and community support, our fundraising campaign is titled Walking With You. Do walk with us, clock your steps, and invite your friends and family to support your walk! For more info, visit https://lakeside.org.sg/support-us/a-million-steps/
