Our Home needs to raise about a total of another $5 Million for our new building project!
(The land lease of the current area St. John's Home occupies ended in 2015 and was returned to the state. This dictates that we occupy a much smaller piece of land (3,300sqm, down from 12,300sqm). Thanks to the support of many well wishers, we are on our way to building a new Home to care for existing and new residents. The building work will commence Sep 2018 and is slated to be ready end 2020. We have stepped up our fundraising efforts in recent years but with limited resources, it is a huge challenge to raise the remaining about $5 million).
About the Charity
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 $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
