Artist: Mdm Leong Lin Foon
Medium: Chinese Calligraphy Wood Carving
Dimension: 45cm x 25xm x 2cm

Mdm Leong Lin Foon combines traditional Chinese calligraphy with wood carving to present a new art form. The NAFA alumni has had her works exhibited in China, Japan, Korea and Singapore. The Chinese characters on the above wood carving reads Le Tian Zhi Ming, which, as Mdm Leong puts it, means Don't Worry, Be Happy. And that is the attitude and mentality that Mdm Leong hopes our elderly residents and our stakeholders will adopt.

* Donors can claim Tax Exemption on the difference between the donation amount and the market value of the art work.

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 for the physical and spiritual needs of such elderly persons as have no home or suitable accommodation and no children or close relatives who have adequate facilities for looking after them. The Home is open to all regardless of race or creed. St John's Home for Elderly Persons is not a government-funded organisation. We depend on the generosity of the public to continue our works. Due to urban planning and the need to maximise land use, the Home is raising funds to construct a five-storey building, on one third of our existing land area. The estimated construction cost of the new building is $15 million. We invite you to join us in this exciting new journey of building a new Home for the Elderly, so that our elderly residents will not be displaced when our land tenancy expires. The Home is a recipient of the President's Award for Philanthropy 2014 (Non-profit). Website Link : www.stjohneldershome.org.sg
