'What is the point of celebrating when I am all alone? Life just goes on day by day ...' lamented Mr Ong, aged 72 years old.
Many Singaporeans celebrate birthdays and festive holidays with friends and family. However, for some, celebration means nothing to them. Feelings of loneliness, sorrow and regret once bottled up could rise to the fore, leading to sorrow, regrets which may result in depression and suicidal thoughts.
Most of our seniors like Mr Ong are often left alone with no one to celebrate birthday and other festive holidays. This can be a depressing moment for our some of our seniors as it often triggers more sad than happy memories of their past.
Give a Gift of Joy to lonely seniors today? Donation of $100 will allow each senior to receive a priceless gift.
Each senior will be provided with the following yearly:
1. A celebration meal and outing
2. Birthday cake
3. A Gift for his/her birthday
Your support will go a long way to help seniors to forget the past and live a happy life for tomorrow.

Under our Community Outreach arm, we currently operate 10 Active Ageing 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.
