A COMMUNITY CULTURE OF GIVING


As we celebrate this festive season, we are truly grateful for many friends and supporters of SCCFSC who have not waited for the year end to give of themselves... 

Neighbour Helping Neighbour

Madam Luan Muay, who is in her 60’s, is a regular and constant volunteer at South Central Community Family Service Centre.

Knowing that her neighbours needed help, she befriended an elderly resident, chatting with her and bringing her out. She even made confinement food for a mother to help a needy family.

“My children are grown up and I am not working so I have the time. I love making new friends and volunteering helps me to pass my time meaningfully. It makes me happy,” said a smiling Mdm Muay.

Encouraging Neighbours' Talent

Auntie Polly (not her real name) is also in her 60’s and is a retired market florist.
Seeing that many of the children who come to our centre are artistically inclined, she sponsored an art training session for four youth who showed artistic talent.

These youth produced beautiful paintings, confirming their abilities and boosting their self-image. One of them, Nashrudy, presented his painting to Auntie Polly to show his deep appreciation. Auntie Polly believes that we “all can help in our own little ways.”

Nashrudy said that he was “surprised that he could draw the crocodile” and that he was “happy and proud.”

Goodwill Rations Giving for the Season

Many of the families that we support at SCCFSC cannot afford daily provisions, and during the festive period, this is all the more apparent.

Food rations are very crucial emergency help to families who simply do not have enough to buy food after paying off all their other bills like school fees or utilities bills.

Nine-year-old Marcus (above) regularly helps to water the plants at our Community Garden. He came by recently and donated 2 weeks’ worth of food rations to help the community,  a gesture which showed that he has truly embraced the spirit of community giving.
Every gift counts towards helping the community
Why not give joy this season by donating food rations to SCCFSC so that we can help our community in need.

Staples like rice,  Milo, instant noodles, diapers, cooking oil and biscuits are the most commonly needed items.
 
Do give generously this season!


SCCFSC Wishes You and Your Loved Ones a Joyous Christmas and a Very Happy 2015!
