Every day, Mr Lim, age 84, works from 8am to 10pm, as a "Karang Guni" man to support his two grown sons who are diagnosed with depression and intellectual disability. His wife passed away. His meagre earnings are insufficient to pay for their daily expenses and the family has to sleep along the corridors as the one-room HDB rental flat is filled with cardboard cartons.

Mdm T was referred to Home Care Service for long-term wound care and management of her urostomy tube. She was diagnosed with cervical cancer 14 years ago and is now in remission. She now suffers from urinary incontinence, resulting in her dependence on the urinary catheter. Her husband resigned from his job to care for her. Yong-en waived their Home Care fees in light of the tough financial circumstances this couple is in.

With your generous support, we can continue to provide families with essential Home Care support, food rations and other assistance.

About the Charity

Yong-en is a registered charity affiliated with Fairfield Methodist Church. Our mission is to demonstrate God's love through person-centred care services to support the needs of the elderly, disadvantaged individuals and families in Chinatown and beyond.

We support our community through:
1) Family Support Service that comprises a combination of providing financial assistance and food distribution to the low income families in the short to medium term; and empowerment projects that need a longer period of intervention (i.e. Tuition and Bursary, Counselling, Support Groups, and Casework).
2) Dementia Day Care that cares for dementia clients and their caregivers;
3) Home Care that cater to the medical and nursing needs of the home bound and frail elderly; and
4) Active Ageing that promotes positive and healthy ageing.

Together with our partners, stakeholders, donors and volunteers, we forge ahead with hope to improving lives and impacting communities.
