Memories of Christmas Past
About Campaignends 07 Jan 2016, 12 AM
Christmas rings a positive bell for most of us. It has a positive vibe that exudes cheer and inspires the spirit of giving.
For St. John’s Home for Elderly Persons’ resident, Mdm Julia Wee (not her real name), Christmas was usually a simply affair. She and her husband’s friends would come over to their house, and she would cook curry and make Kueh Pei Ti Their friends loved her Kueh Pei Ti.
Nowadays, Christmas is spent with the kind-hearted volunteers and visitors of St. John’s Home. There would be buffet, Christmas presents and table games.
Sometimes, she does miss the good old days when she get to cook for her loved ones.
But Mdm Wee is grateful that volunteers spend time with elderly persons like herself, especially during festive seasons like Christmas.
Make a pledge today, and help needy / homeless elderly persons like Mdm Wee.
Ask your family members and loved ones to make a donation to St. John’s Home instead of buying you a Christmas present.
St. John's Home for Elderly Persons is a Charity that provides long-term residential care for needy and/or homeless elderly persons regardless of race or creed. Due to urban planning and the need to maximise land use, the Home is raising funds to construct a five-storey building, on one third of our existing land area. The estimated construction cost of the new building is $12 million. We invite you to join us in this exciting new journey of building a new Home for the Elderly, so that our elderly residents will not be displaced when our land lease extension expires. The Home is a recipient of the President's Award for Philanthropy 2014 (Non-profit). Website Link : www.stjohneldershome.org.sg
