About Campaign

ends 31 Aug 2017, 11:59 PM

We all want our loved ones to be healthy and happy but for some of us, this may be a challenge. A road traffic accident in January 2003 left 38-year-old Mr Lim Joo Phiau with traumatic brain injuries. Hand gestures and facial expressions are the only mode of expression for Joo Phiau who has been unable to speak since then. Joo Phiau is also unable to walk, bathe or go to the toilet on his own and can only control his left hand to show a thumbs-up as affirmation. He cannot speak but can communicate through a mobile device, where he types in messages. He relies heavily on Mr Kua, his stepfather, who had to quit his job to be his main caregiver, attending to daily needs such as bathing and feeding.

In 2016, Mr Kua sought help from SPD when their savings were entirely used up. SPD, a charity supported by Community Chest, supports Joo Phiau through counseling, long-term care plans as well as offer befriending services for Mr Kua to alleviate his caregiver stress. As age is catching up, Mr Kua is not as fit as before with arthritis in his left knee. He also walks with a limp and cannot stand for extended periods of time due to a previous spine operation. Despite the physical strain, Mr Kua continues his devoted care for Joo Phiau to his best.

We would like to invite you to journey with us so that our supported charities can continue to help beneficiaries like Joo Phiau on a long term basis. Thank you for your support in creating a better tomorrow and a brighter future, as One.

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.
