Customized Care (CC) Project
In the first article, we touched on the topic of poverty in Nepal, but what about poverty in our home country? Of course, in this “wealthy” city of Singapore, poverty still exists – an unavoidable trait.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, many lives have been negatively affected because of the loss of jobs and economic downfalls. However, the ones that are bearing the brunt of this impact are the single and/or disabled elderly as well as the single parents, struggling to put food on the table for their families. This is the 0.1% that we aim to help through this project – Customized Care, that focuses on under-privileged families with special living needs.
So, you might ask, how does it work? To answer your question, it is a five-step process that involves referrals from Family Care Centers, accessing the needs of beneficiaries before assigning volunteers to deliver customized care to their doorstep. Check out the photo below to understand the detailed Customized Care process!
Since the beginning of this project, we have reached out to many beneficiaries island-wide, including neighborhoods in Bukit Batok, Marsiling, Eunos and many others. Customized Care examples can also range from delivering food items to covering the cost of medical transport, making this project a very versatile and multi-faceted one.
“Thank you so much Yan, Lee and Jeffery for this lovely bike!!! So overwhelmed!!! Can’t wait to ride it to work!” This is a message that a beneficiary sent to our volunteer, showing the positive impact of this project, as we deliver care and bring smiles on people’s faces.
