Life broke down for Mdm Soh when her husband fell ill in 2019. She was the only caregiver for her husband. Overwhelmed with all the added burdens and responsibilities, she became sullen and withdrawn and fell into depression.

Mdm Ho is a senior in her 80s who stays alone in a 3 room flat. Her only daughter lives in America and she has no other relatives to turn to for help. She struggles to remember her way back to her flat. Because of that, she doesn't venture out much nor does she know many people in the neighbourhood.

Miro is a shy 18 year old guy who shuts himself up in his room the whole day, surfing the internet. He is anxious about many things and has entertained thoughts of self harm and even suicide when he feels overwhelmed by life. He has dreams and hopes of pursuing his interest in Computer Studies.

Poor health, frailty and mental illness isolate affected persons from the community.
Studies have found that seniors living alone are twice as likely as their peers to develop depressive symptoms.
In 2017, the number of seniors aged 60 and above who took their own lives peaked at 129, social disconnect was cited as a contributing factor.

Help us reach out to isolated elderly through befriending and active ageing programmes to keep them connected to each other and to the community.
Help us come alongside caregivers to relieve them of the stresses and burdens they carry.
Help us bring hope to persons who are tortured and trapped by their mental health illnesses.
