We are a team of eight residents, aged 66 to 90, from St. John's Home For Elderly Persons which is located at 69 Wan Tho Ave. We took up the challenge of helping our Home raise $100,000, as part of the funds to build our new Home.
Though not savvy in digital media, we shot this video entirely on our own using mobile phone! Please take 3 minutes to check out the video and support our effort to raise funds for our new Home by donating generously.
Our Home needs to raise about a total of another $5 Million for our new building project!
(St John's Home for Elderly Persons has occupied 69 Wan Tho Avenue since the beginning. The lease on the land expired on 31 Dec 2015. We are very grateful to be able to secure a fresh 30-year lease beginning on 1 January 2016 for 3,300sqm, a part of the 12,000sqm of land we have long occupied.
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. We will have the Groundbreaking Ceremony on 1 Sep 2018 and our new Home is slated to be ready by end 2020).
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
