Join Us in “Caring For Uncle” this Lunar New Year 2023! Your support will help the frail aged who are dependent on nursing care, the elderly with dementia, seniors isolated from family as well as those with mobility issues like swallowing disorders. Your gift will provide for doctors’ visits, psychosocial programmes, medical treatments, meals, and shelter for our beneficiaries.

ABOUT UNCLE SIM

Chinese New Year is coming soon, and as we prepare for this joyful event, it is important that we do not neglect the underprivileged in our community. Mr Sim* suffers from a hearing impairment and a mental condition. He would miss his medical appointments and forget to take his medication. He also suffers from a mobility issue and is at risk of falling. Mr Sim’s family had to constantly care for him and keep him safe. With his many illnesses, growing frail became a real struggle for Mr Sim and his family.
