About Campaignends 31 Aug 2019, 11:59 PM
Habitat Singapore has been actively reaching out to them under our volunteer-driven Project HomeWorks programme since 2006 to intensively de-clutter, clean & rehabilitate their cramped, dirty and sometimes pest-infested flats.
We do this to #SparkJoyAtHome because we believe everyone, including vulnerable Singaporeans, deserve a safe & healthy place to live in.
Yearly, we serve about 450 elderly & families on Public Assistance living in rental or purchased flats. As our elderly population continues to grow rapidly, we need crucial financial support to keep Project HomeWorks going.
On average, manpower for multiple home visits, materials, furniture, services and volunteer facilitation can cost up to $1200 per home. We hope to help 50 more families every year but we're aiming for 20 more as a start.
Whether it is several rounds of professional pest-control services or the replacement of a broken bed, every dollar donated is stretched to meet critical needs on the ground for the vulnerable in Singapore.
For NDP 2019, Habitat for Humanity Singapore is honoured to be part of the SG Cares Movement to Give A Little More, Care A Little More to build a more inclusive society.
#GiveALittleMore this National Day to help someone #SparkJoyAtHome.
About the Charity
Habitat for Humanity Singapore is part of an international Christian housing charity that seeks to eliminate poverty housing worldwide. Convicted that safe and affordable housing provides a path out of poverty, we have been working alongside low-income communities to increase their access to improved living conditions. Since 2004, Habitat Singapore regularly sends volunteer teams to build decent and affordable houses across Asia-Pacific. Locally, we provide intensive home-cleaning for vulnerable individuals and families so they can have a safe & sanitary place to call home. To learn more, donate or volunteer, visit habitat.org.sg
