This year we are organising a Charity Concert, “Passage
of Life”, on Saturday 16 December 2017, to raise funds for our local
humanitarian services. We appeal to you for your sponsorship of this
meaningful event. Your support will help us to raise funds to sustain and
grow our local humanitarian services for the vulnerable in Singapore such as
TransportAid – Providing regular transport and escort services for the disabled and elderly to access life-sustaining medical treatments such as kidney dialysis and rehabilitative therapy. Most of our clients are wheelchair-bound and have no other means to get to and from the medical facilities.
FoodAid – Providing the needy
and disadvantaged in our community with essential provision such as rice and
other and nutritious meals for the disadvantaged in our community.
Red Cross Home for the Disabled – Singapore’s only residential home for the severely disabled
improves the lives of its charges, as well as their families - through
long-term residential, short-term respite and day activity services. Majority
of our clients have multiple disabilities and come from low-income families.
ElderAid and HoME+ – Mobilises community volunteers in caring and building the
resilience of the elderly, in our increasingly ageing population. Home
Monitoring and Eldercare (HoME+) provides home monitoring and response for
seniors living on their own for community ageing-in-place.
Your donations to the Singapore Red Cross and
its community services will make a significant impact on the lives, families
and communities of our beneficiaries.
