I will be burning one calorie on a gym equipment for a dollar that you donate! I am aiming to raise $5,000.00 at the end of the campaign. Please support the low income seniors by exchanging your dollar for a calorie! The top 3 donors will receive a French Apple Tart baked by yours truly and a pint of ice cream + Free delivery to your doorstep (within Singapore only)!!

My Story

This year, my organisation Care Corner celebrates its 40th anniversary. To celebrate, we are launching “40 Days of Care” (2 August – 10 September 2021), a fundraising campaign  that epitomises the core spirit of Care Corner – to always remember the vulnerable and marginalised in our midst.   

As we celebrate 40 years, we want to rally others alongside us in strengthening the support and services provided to those we have been journeying with. In so doing, we hope to usher in  new beginnings  for these vulnerable groups of people.   

I will be fundraising to support "Rehabilitating Seniors' Homes into a safe and sanitary living environment". 

About the cause

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 & to upkeep their homes. Everyone deserves a clean, safe home and to lead a dignified life.

How your donation will help the elderly
  1. Regular cleaning to ensure a hygienic home free from pests and clutter
  2. Maintaining their living space by repairing any broken items or appliances in the house (e.g. repainting peeling and stained walls, repairing rusty metal gates)
  3. Any other necessary services
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.
