Our Campaign Storyends 08 Feb 2016, 11:59 PM
It started with the idea of donating our christmas gift to our children to one of the homes on giving.sg .That was last Christmas. Instead of buying my child and friend's children christmas present for Christmas celebration, my family donated the amount for children's present $300 to one of the elderly home. It is a small idea that we want to inculcate our children to be sharing what they have and the act of kindness.
I don't know of any portal that aggregate all charity organization on one portal but this one is really good for donors to get information and support what they are passionate about. Before, whenever I can donate, I would chose any charity organization that comes to my mind, but now this is really comprehensive and convenient.
Our population is aging and everyday when you will see our elderly walking on the street. In my mind, I wish and bless them that they live a happy and healthy life. When we grow old, we want to live a happy and fulfiliing life too. So, share what we can to make their lives happier.
Happier Elderly !
About The Charity
We are a Voluntary Welfare Organisation that provides counselling services for elderly persons and Community Mental Health intervention programme.
With one of the highest ageing population in the world, a significant portion of elderly persons suffer from loneliness, depression and low quality of life. We strive to improve the quality of life of such elderly persons and their family members by helping them overcome their emotional, psychological and social difficulties.
Feelings of loneliness and helplessness is the leading cause of depression, causing Singapore's elderly suicide to be at an all-time-high in 2017.
We should not focus only on treating problems. Much more can be done to prevent and intervene potential issues before it escalates.
Only with proper help and intervention can we help them overcome such difficulties before it spirals into bigger problems that may cause them to be displaced from their family, home or even themselves.
We very much depend on your support and donation to continue providing for our beneficiaries.
Thank you for empowering us to continue serving elderly persons in need.
