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.

About the Charity

A Shelter for needy elderly persons.

Established in Dec. 1958, St. John's Home for Elderly Persons is a Sheltered Home for elderly persons who are ambulant and aged above 60.

Our Mission is to provide shelter and care to meet the physical and spiritual needs of elderly persons who have no home and no children or close relatives with adequate resources to care for them.
The Home is open to all regardless of race or creed.

We are not a government-subvented Home and depend largely on the public's generosity to enable us to continue our work as a Registered Charity.

Since the Home started operations in December 1958, we have been located at our present site at 69 Wan Tho Avenue. In 2015, the Government granted us a fresh 30-year lease on a reduced land area. Concurrently, we also entered into a three-plus-three year tenancy agreement on the land that we are currently occupying.

We are now building a new five-storey building on the 30-year lease land to maximise on the plot ratio of 1.4 prescribed for the land. When we move into the new building, we shall increase our licensed capacity to 150. Construction began in Nov 2018, with target completion in Mar 2021.

We appeal for your support of building a new Home, so our elderly residents will not be displaced. Please donate generously. Thank you.

The Home is a recipient of the President's Award for Philanthropy 2014, the Charity Transparency Award 2019, 2018, Community in Bloom Award 2018, 2016, 2014.
