'Living my life like tearing off calendar pages, day by day. Chinese New Year is just another ordinary for an old man like me suffering from stroke.'

AhGong is home alone always, and all his siblings have gone separate ways. They did not communicate for years.

Lions Befrienders allow AhGong to have a place, senior activity centre, accessible to him, in times of loneliness, helplessness and even in his happiness.

We have been reaching out to these socially isolated and lonely seniors island-wide, checking in and befriending with them for the last 25 years. We have been relentlessly reaching out to these lonely seniors to value their existence, ensuring that they are not forgotten, and to fill in their lonely yearns for companionship.

Our goal this Chinese New Year is to prosper and harvest thousands of seniors' smiles in their hearts.

Your gift of care for these lonely seniors in the community not only enable us to reach out to countless socially isolated seniors in Singapore, it also supports us in providing them with holistic care programme with focus on their mental, social, emotional, physical and spiritual health.

Support us now to bring Joy to Lonely Senior this Chinese New Year!

About the Charity

Established in 1995, LB has more than 25 years of experience in befriending and caring for seniors in order for them to age in place in the community. Over the years, LB strives to address the varied needs of more than 86,000 seniors by adopting a senior-centric approach in its eldercare services. Leveraging on the support of some 1,000 regular volunteers, we actively engage more than 6,000 at-risk seniors via a spectrum of integrated eldercare service from preventive to intervention through comprehensive programmes, including social, emotional, mental and physical, to improve their quality of life.

Amid the challenges in the eldercare landscape, LB undertakes constant review and adjustment to its programmes and services. Under our Community Outreach arm, we currently operate 10 Senior Activity Centres, 3 Cluster Support, 2 Senior Group Homes and Home Personal Care services. Our Befriending arm extends island-wide befriending services to socially isolated seniors. For its exemplary disclosure and corporate governance practices, LB was conferred the Charity Transparency Award by the Charity Council in 2016 and 2017.
