At Christmas, all roads lead home. Give our vulnerable elderly & low-income families the best gift of a safe #HomeThisChristmas.
What a year 2020 has been, filled with unprecedented challenges and disruptions that have also given us the opportunity to re-evaluate our priorities in life.
Likewise, the subdued festive season ahead of us missing familiar shopping trips and parties, leaves us wanting what matters most of all - human connection and bringing cheer to those around us.
“Christmas is most truly Christmas when we celebrate it by giving the light of love to those who need it most.”
- Ruth Carter Stapleton
Despite the challenges brought about by Covid-19, your support powered our teams on the ground to give more than 100 seniors and families a safe refuge this year.
We launch our #HomeThisChristmas campaign this year in preparation of serving the numerous households still depending on our help. And every dollar raised in this campaign will empower another Singaporean to live in dignity.
