We’ve started a #CharitySpotlight series and, each month, we will profile interesting charities that should be on your radar. And our first post looks at five charities in Singapore.
Singapore Children’s Society
The Singapore Children’s Society aims to bring relief and happiness to children in need, placing the children’s wellbeing as a priority. You can make a donation by clicking here, or even start a fundraising campaign. Aside from that, if you would like to take a more involved approach, you could volunteer at one of their 12 service centres.
Habitat for Humanity
What about helping the elderly and low-income families? Habitat for Humanity’s Project Homeworks aims to help build and rehabilitate flats in Singapore for vulnerable families. You are able to volunteer on an ad-hoc basis with your friends to help give back to the elderly community in Singapore. You can also help by starting a fundraising campaign through GIVE.asia, which is such an easy way to collect donations!
If you have pets, you might want to check out ACRES. ACRES (Animal Concerns Research and Education Society) is an animal protection organisation with the aim to improve the living conditions and welfare of animals in captivity. Research is also carried out on the use of animals and are then used to educate the public to promote involvement in animal protection movements. You can donate to the charity here.
Club Rainbow (Singapore)
Club Rainbow is a non-profit charity organisation that seeks to support and empower children with chronic illnesses and their families by providing relevant services. You can give back to this community through sponsorship, making a donation, or becoming a volunteer. Club Rainbow relies largely on corporate and public donations to sustain its work and daily operations. So, a little goes a long way!
HCA Hospice Care
HCA Hospice Care (HCA) is Singapore’s largest home hospice care provider. They aim to provide comfort and support to patients with life-limiting illnesses regardless of their socio-economic status. You can become a volunteer and give back by sharing your comfort and joy with others in need. Otherwise, you can also make donations or give a legacy or memorial gift (in remembrance of departed loved ones).
These are just five of over 700 charities that are listed on GIVE.asia and you can click here to browse others.
