Singapore Red Cross - Help Uplift Our Local Elderly and the Vulnerable Families
$1 a day, every day will make a real difference in the lives of our beneficiaries. Help us in our collective effort to provide aid locally. Your support will bring relief and peace of mind to the most vulnerable in our community.
Over the past months, we at Singapore Red Cross (SRC) have seen an outpouring of support from individuals and organisations for which we are grateful.
But even in these challenging times, we have to remain dedicated on the homefront to continue safeguarding our beneficiaries and enhancing our fundraising efforts to enable the continual delivery of vital services to provide support and relief for some of Singapore’s most vulnerable families, elderly and disabled.
Allow me to share with you the additional aid provided by SRC, to intensify care and supplement our on-going services during Covid-19:
Customised care packages and Psychosocial support calls for seniors living alone.
Care packages will benefit 1,000 seniors across SRC’s elderly focused services. The care package will comprise a mixture of items, carefully curated individually based on beneficiaries’ varied, most immediate and essential needs.
Reaching out beyond SRC’s regular beneficiaries, SRC will receive new referrals, particularly from social service agencies that have suspended their services.
Perhaps often overlooked but crucial in recognizing the anxiety experienced by SRC’s beneficiaries and volunteers, under these challenging circumstances, the Singapore Red Cross is also providing psychosocial support to its beneficiaries through home visits and telephone calls, and would extend the helpline service to all its volunteers within the month.
Temporary conversion of our premises to a Temporary shelter is also being provided to our migrant friends who have fallen thru the cracks during COVID-19 and are waiting for employers to pay them after they were retrenched or released. Funds raised will be for basic refurnishing and necessities.
We hope you will support us in our cause to help local elderly by making a donation.
Donating is really simple and secure. The money will directly go to Singapore Red Cross.
Your donation is also 250% tax-deductible.
P.S. Any unutilised funds after COVID-19 is over will be channelled towards the Singapore Red Cross's local programmes
