Hi, we are group of colleagues coming together to raise fund to rehabilitate seniors’ homes into a safe and sanitary living environment. We will be doing 40 sets of exercises per day for the next 28 days to raise $4000. We sincerely look forward to your support and contribution.

My Story

: We are a group of colleagues working at Care Corner Family Service Centre (Toa Payoh). Care Corner Singapore is celebrating our 40th anniversary this year. To commemorate this milestone in a meaningful and purposeful way, we are raising funds for five special causes close to our hearts. Join us in ‘40 Days of Care’ from 2 Aug to 10 Sep 2021. Let’s come together to forge new beginnings, give hope and bring care to our beneficiaries in a tangible manner.

About the Cause 
Goal: Rehabilitate seniors’ homes into a safe and sanitary living environment Seniors living alone or with low-income families often struggle with multiple life challenges. They cope with physical and mental health issues, and lack the financial means to care of themselves or to upkeep their homes. Their homes are usually cluttered from hoarding or plagued with pest infestation (e.g. bed bugs, cockroaches and rats). From peeling stained walls, rusty metal gates to mould in hard-to-reach places, they spend their days in unhygienic and hazardous living conditions. These homes are not just less than ideal - they pose real health, fall and fire risks. Everyone deserves a clean, safe home and to lead a dignified life.

 Meet Nathan*  Nathan (68) was referred to our Senior Services team for financial assistance and home rehabilitation. He lives alone in a one-room rental flat after his wife left him, leaving him in the care of his son whom was later incarcerated for drug-related offences. Nathan had not gone home for many months due to bed bug infestations. Upset and emotional about his family issues, his health deteriorated further. We helped him secure financial assistance for his medical and home bills, and partnered Habitat for Humanity to clear and sanitise his home. Our caseworker continued to keep in touch with him and encouraged him to keep up with medical appointments and community activities. Like Nathan, there are many seniors who live in poor living conditions. We can help provide a safe and sanitary home. One senior at a time, one home at a time. 
Donations received will be eligible for dollar-for-dollar matching by Singapore government under Community Silver Trust.
