About the Activity

Project HomeWorks is Habitat for Humanity Singapore's local volunteer programme where we work with vulnerable persons and families who need help to rehabilitate their homes into a safe and sanitary state.

Many of the vulnerable individuals have little financial means and/or social support, as well as mobility issues that make it difficult to care for themselves, let alone their homes.

We do this through the support of like-minded volunteers who help us in the areas of intensive cleaning, packing, reorganising, painting and eliminating pest infestation.

This National Day month, join us and make an impact in the lives of the most vulnerable living amidst us.

Do note that the volunteering location is not yet confirmed, but will be in Eastern Singapore. The addressed indicated in this listing is the Habitat for Humanity Singapore's office.

UPDATE: We are so excited to have Habitat Ambassadors Paul Foster and Carla Dunareanu join us for this very special National Day Project HomeWorks!
