Mothers. They already loved us before we were born.

During our nine-month stay in their tummies, they made countless sacrifices for our sake, such as foregoing their favourite food, cutting back on activities, enduring aches and pains and sleeping discomforts and the like.....

Immediately after we were born, they endured lack of sleep because we woke them up many times throughout the night with our crying. Their breasts ached with pain from breast-feeding us. They looked in the mirror with bittersweet memories of their pre-pregnancy figures. They became 'worriers', especially when we are out partying with friends all night, or travelling solo in a foreign country. They learnt what forgiveness really means, whenever we hurt them either with our words or actions, and yet, they chose to forgive and love us, over and over and over again.

Mothers - their lives are never the same again that very moment we barged into their lives.

We dedicate this Mother's Day to all the mothers around us.

Thank you for your unconditional love and tender-loving care.

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
