About Campaign

At Xin Yuan Community Care, we believe that good nutrition is a key to a happy and healthy life. However, as we primarily serve underprivileged children and seniors who live alone, it is oftentimes difficult for them to access nutritious foods due to the cost barrier and preference for cheap, easy to prepare instant food alternatives.
To change mindsets, Xin Yuan has consistently emphasized the importance of nutrition through our healthy diet programs such as healthy cooking workshops and health talks in collaboration with the Health Promotion Board.
Now, we are aiming to target the accessibility barriers, which has also been exacerbated by Covid-19 and its implications on the incomes of our low-income families.
We are raising funds to set up a sustainable community fridge system, whereby we will stock up a fridge with vegetables and other healthy foods for our beneficiaries to bring home for their families' consumption. Currently, our fridge is being stocked by kind donations by various partners; however, our fundraising campaign will allow us to purchase these food items ourselves, which will also further ensure the sustainability of the programme in the long term.

About the Charity

Xin Yuan Community Care (XYCC), set up in May 2005, is a registered member of the National Council of Social Service (NCSS) and is also an Institution of Public Character (IPC). Our charity is committed to providing regular financial assistance and other forms of therapeutic, health, and educational support to 200 needy elderly as well as 50 underprivileged children from low-income families in the Bishan-Toa Payoh area.

We do so by providing daily group exercise activities for our elderly led by our fitness trainer. We also provide the space and opportunity for our elderly to interact with each other, or with volunteers, which also provides social and emotional support. In addition, XYCC provides financial support to needy families, giving them monthly grocery supplies and subsidies.

We also ensure that we hold festive celebrations such as Chinese New Year, Hari Raya, Lantern Festival, Deepavali and Christmas for all our beneficiaries and their families.
