About Campaign

This year has been exceptionally difficult for all of us. The COVID-19 virus does not only impact the health of infected patients but also inflicts invisible psychological harm on our mental wellbeing. Some of us have been lucky to keep our heads above water. But there are some of us who are not so fortunate.

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, previously known as O'Joy Care Services, was founded in early 2004 amidst emerging trends of ageing population, by a group of social workers and professional counsellors who recognised the need for prevention and early intervention of mental health issues associated with ageing, and to promote healthy ageing among seniors. We have provided quality professional counselling and clinical case management services to over 5,600 clients since 2004.

In 2019, O'Joy Care Services was awarded the Charity Transparency Awards and Charity Governance Awards with Special Commendation for Operational Efficiency.

From April 2020, we began operating as O'Joy Limited - a Company Limited by Guarantee.

O'Joy continues to be dedicated to serving vulnerable seniors and adults with mental health issues, by providing counselling, case management and health-oriented ageing activities.

Please support us in helping these vulnerable seniors and adults improve their lives through building mental resilience and wellbeing.
