Ties That Bind
All of us are part of a family – be it our biological, work or Giving family. And with Singapore’s ageing population on the rise, it is estimated that by 2050 almost half of our population, and therefore families, will be at least 65 years old*.
Will you play your part to support and empower those in your immediate and wider families facing weakening bodies and failing minds? Let’s remember that the love and support we show are the ties that bind, making us more than just a group of people. It makes us family.
Play your part and show your support for the elderly today.
