About Campaignends 31 Dec 2020, 11:59 PM
During this pandemic, O'Joy saw a surge in the number of clients (+13%) seeking counselling for mental health issues. Stress, depression, anxiety and suicide ideation surrounding job insecurity, unemployment, impaired family dynamics or caregiver stress are some of the predominant issues.
Regrettably, the government funding for one of our counselling services has been discontinued. Yet the demand for our service has increased. O'Joy currently has 89 clients at risk of losing psychological support. We need $30,000 to sustain the continuation of our counselling service for mental health by end of this year.
By supporting our counselling service, you can be a light to many others who are shrouded by mental health issues. If you donate before 31 December 2020, your gift will be amplified by the Bicentennial Fund's dollar to dollar matching grant, making your kindness shine brighter. Your donation is also eligible for 250% tax benefits.
About the Charity
O'Joy Limited is a non-profit charity that provides psychosocial care to enhance the mental wellbeing of vulnerable seniors and adults.
Amidst the emerging trends of an ageing population in 2004, O'Joy opened its doors and started serving the psychosocial needs of our elderly population via counselling and social work.
in recent years, we noticed the increasing demands for mental health services for young to middle-aged adults. O'Joy acted to fill this gap by starting our BEACON program in 2020. BEACON provides counselling therapy to adults (18 to 49 years old), facing mental health challenges. This was especially timely during the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.
O'Joy means Oceans of Joy. We hope to bring joy and hope to those we serve through our programmes and services.
O'Joy Limited is a registered charity with IPC status. Your donations are entitled to 250% tax deduction.
