A Brush with Kindness - Meet our House IC Pi Rong!

In this second part of our micro-series featuring the inspiring House ICs who volunteered for A Brush with Kindness, meet 21 year old Pi Rong who would be described by his friends as "Honest, Steadfast and Straightforward". Having volunteered with Habitat Singapore since he was in Junior College, Pi Rong is entering university soon but still makes time to serve with us regularly as a Project HomeWorks Champion.



Q: Many causes out there. Why Habitat?

I feel that what Habitat for Humanity Singapore does is one of the most impactful volunteering activities out there - to improve the living conditions and the lives of vulnerable families and communities with just a few hours of sweat and energy. Every time I volunteer, I get to make a tangible impact in improving the homes of those who need it most, such as the elderly - being able to do this is something which motivates me to volunteer often with Habitat Singapore for not just Project HomeWorks sessions but also A Brush with Kindness!


Q: What’s your role as a House IC for A Brush with Kindness?

As a House IC, I receive briefs from Habitat Singapore staff prior to the event to get an understanding of the works to be done and the logistics needed. On the day itself, I will meet up with volunteers and homeowners and carry out the home improvement works which were previously outlined. During the session, I will guide volunteers to do some of the tasks (and do some tasks myself) and engage homeowners to find out their needs and how we can further help!



Q: How has your experience as a House IC been?

This is not my first time as House IC, but it has still been a fruitful experience nonetheless. Every session comes with a different set of logistical challenges and A Brush with Kindness is no different. Being able to motivate and guide the volunteers to carry out the home improvement works safely as well as engaging the homeowners is something which makes each experience fun, interesting and meaningful!


Q: Biggest takeaway as House IC for A Brush with Kindness?

It is quite heartening to see a community gather together and carry out works simultaneously - I really enjoyed the event organised for the residents after the A Brush with Kindness painting session!


Q: Any insights you would like to share?

Always paint a layer of primer first before any other colour! It makes the walls look better *laughs*.



 

The wise Nelson Mandela once said that the "Youths of Today are the Leaders of Tomorrow". Truly exemplifying this is Pi Rong who has been passionately championing for our neighbours in need.


If you would like to join Pi Rong in supporting the Habitat cause and be the reason why someone in-need can have a refreshed home to live in, we invite you to be our monthly donor and power Project HomeWorks and other programmes here at habitat.give.asia !
