A group of active volunteers in CCIS has started a ground up initiative - Community Matters to promote community service among students. We work with different charities & non-profit groups to bring community projects to students & youths. The pandemic has increased the interest in community service, and we have decided to extend this blessing of community beyond Christmas season. In June, we had a Hearts to Hands campaign where we engaged 193 youths for virtual community service with migrant workers and children in need.
This Christmas, we are working closely with children in need and migrant workers in Singapore. We’re working closely with SG Accident Help Centre, a non-profit organisation that renders aid to migrant workers. We have lined up a series of Christmas celebrations such as giving away of blessing kits and cultural programmes.
We are raising funds for the migrant workers’ blessing kits and meals for the events. If you would like to find out more, please email us firstname.lastname@example.org
Donations can be made to CCIS. You can find out more on our page - Support CCIS: Donations. Please indicate purpose of giving - Community Matters
Community Partners have been an important part of the CCIS celebrations since 2011 when we introduced the Charity Booth. Each year, CCIS would identify a particular specialty of the Social Service Sector and invite the respective VWOs and Charities to showcase their works and services to the visitors at CCIS. Through this, we hope to help raise public awareness on the many channels of support that are available and the good works that they are doing.
Our Community Partners in 2021
Homeless Hearts of Singapore (HHOS) was started in Jul 2014 to befriend the homeless of Singapore, help them with their practical needs, and advocate pro-homeless policies for them in the public sector. Fuelled by a team of volunteers, they continue their outreach with a mission to
(1) Make Singapore a City of Refuge where the community, infrastructure, and policies provide adequate support for those who are displaced / isolated.
(2) To help the homeless re-integrate into community via community-building, temporary aid, advocacy, and local partnerships.
Even as COVID-19 has been tough on all of us, the challenge in reaching out and befriending our Rough Sleeper friends has increased multi-folds -- first from the economic challenges brought about from COVID-19, and the restrictions in outreach to these individuals.
