About Campaign

Project Makan! is an initiative by the Society for the Aged Sick that aims to deliver a wide array of food choices to our residents of different dietary restrictions at least twice a month.

For most of us, whenever a craving hits, we can almost effortlessly head to a nearby hawker centre or food court to satisfy that craving. As more than 90% of our residents are wheelchair-bound, it is a real challenge for them to travel out of the home to get their favourite local dishes for meals.

While our Home has an in-house kitchen that provides meals to our residents, the Home also recognizes that our residents yearn for something different from their routine meals. It is of no surprise that food can often spark conversations amongst them and indirectly improve their psychosocial being. Therefore, we hope to offer more choices and kinds of food to the residents, e.g. local food, dessert or BBQ sessions.

Till date, we have about 160 residents who are able to consume soild/"normal" food of all textures, and another 180 of them who are only able to consume food of finer or blended texture.

Funds collected will go towards the purchase of food for the residents. Additional funds collected will help in either increasing the frequency of food purchase or operations for the Home. We look forward to partnering with you to improve the lives of our residents here.

The funds will be used towards our goal of purchasing food for the residents twice a month over a period of 10 months.
