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

Established in December 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 for the physical and spiritual needs of such elderly persons as have no home or suitable accommodation and no children or close relatives who have adequate facilities for looking after them. The Home is open to all regardless of race or creed. St John's Home for Elderly Persons is not a government-funded organisation. We depend on the generosity of the public to continue our works. 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 $15 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 tenancy expires. The Home is a recipient of the President's Award for Philanthropy 2014 (Non-profit). Website Link : www.stjohneldershome.org.sg
