"I don't have family. My siblings rarely contact me or pay me a visit." Mr Krishnan, 62, lamented, "I'm all by myself."

Mr Krishnan is one of many seniors in Singapore who has been living alone and under our care for over a decade. They rely on Lions Befrienders volunteers for companionship and socialization on a regular basis.

There has been a sharp decline in seniors' mental wellness since last year. With the recent surge in COVID-19 cases, the seniors are experiencing further isolation with fear, anxiety, uncertainty, and loneliness.

Play a part to Shield Seniors from Loneliness & Heightened Isolation by:
1.Donate to Lions Befrienders
2.Start an internal fundraising event within your company or networks
3.Initiate a company event to show your care and love for at-risk seniors
4.Contribute a portion of your income to help lonely seniors
5.Celebrate your milestones for at-risk seniors: Birthday, Annual Dinner & Dance or Anniversary

Your contributions will enable us to provide customized programmes and access to resources to restore their mental, emotional, social, and physical well-being, so that they can live a healthy, active, and happy life in our community again.

Donations of $1,000 or more will receive name acknowledgement on the Virtual Kindness Garden for a year. You are also entitled to a 250% tax deduction for donations $50 and above.

Thank you for your generosity and kindness.

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.
