Singapore—SowCare @ Armenian
SowCare @ Armenian
Sowing Care for the Homeless Amidst COVID-19
Ministry: COVID-19 Response
There are an estimated 1,000 individuals without a home
In 2019, researchers found that there are an estimated 1,000 individuals without a roof over their heads. Without a home, they are unable to stay home and stay safe—as a result, they are constantly exposed to the novel coronavirus. As beaches and parks are no longer accessible, rough sleepers are now struggling to find a place to sleep and are highly susceptible to contracting the virus.
Providing "Safe, Sound, Sleeping" Places for the homeless
Under this campaign, SowCare—a charity of The Bible Society of Singapore—is working with the Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF) to advocate a temporal Safe Sound Sleeping Place (S3P) at the Bible House—called "SowCare @ Armenian"—during this Circuit Breaker period. SowCare is also looking at giving them a small allowance or ex gratia to sustain their needs.
Necessary resources are urgently needed in order to provide holistic care for them. Let us rally together as one Body of Christ to sow care for the ones who are most in need. Your generous giving will impact the lives of the vulnerable, especially in this trying period. "And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased."—Hebrews 13:16
