About Appeal

We are writing to appeal for your support in gathering funds for our noble initiative. At HandyConnect, a handyman subsidiary under Goodman Interior, we strongly believe in giving back to the community in meaningful ways. Goodman Interior helps homeowners in creating their dream homes. However, we also firmly believe that true value lies in spreading kindness through service and goodwill. That's why we have launched a special initiative to collaborate with medical social workers and extend our assistance beyond just designing dream homes. HandyConnect works hand-in-hand with medical social workers to identify patients who require an extra helping hand. We understand that sometimes, these patients not only need medical attention but also essential home improvements and repair works to ensure their safety and well-being. This is where HandyConnect, our dedicated team of skilled professionals, steps in. As such, our current campaign aims to address a pressing issue faced by needy elderly patients in our community.

More often than not, Medical Social Workers would encounter situations where elderly patients are discharged to homes that are deemed unsafe. Due to their financial circumstances, they are unable to maintain their homes properly. As a result, they face the risk of preventable injuries and hospitalisations. We have identified an opportunity to make a significant impact by providing improvement works in these patients' homes, enabling them to return to a safer living environment.

The improvements we plan to undertake include the installation of grab bars, safety ramps, broken floor tiles, repositioning and installation of power sockets/toilet doors, kitchen improvements, waterproofing, replacement of toilet bowls/accessories. These enhancements are crucial to ensuring the patients' well-being and reducing the likelihood of recurring hospital admissions. While these works may be considered too small for contractors and beyond the skills of handymen, our team at HandyConnect possesses the necessary expertise and skills to carry them out effectively.

We have established partnerships with hospitals' medical social workers, occupational therapists, as well as social agencies to address both the physical and medical aspects of the patients' well-being. By coordinating our efforts, we ensure that the improvement works align with the patients' discharge timelines and meet their specific needs. However, we recognize that the financial burden associated with these improvements falls outside the scope of conventional medical charity funding.

This is where your support becomes invaluable. We are seeking funding to cover the costs of materials, labor, and project management for these minor improvement works. By supporting our campaign, you would be directly contributing to the creation of safer living environments for needy elderly patients in our community. Together, we can prevent unnecessary hospital admissions and positively impact the lives of those who are financially incapable of affording such improvements.
