Caring for the Rough Sleepers and the Vulnerables in Our Nation, in Celebration of the National Day

HIA organised a small-scale National Day celebration event on 7 August 2022 for the rough sleepers residing at both S3P@Bible House and S3P@Yishun Shelter to celebrate 57th National Day. It used the theme Stronger Together, Majulah! and there were fun-filled programmes organised for them, such as team-bonding games for all the residents, a video screening on the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew’s speech, and followed by the solemn moment where all the volunteers and beneficiaries sang the National Anthem, and recited the Singapore Pledge with full commitment and allegiance to Singapore. The residents were then treated to a sumptuous dinner spread of nasi lemak with various sides, drinks, desserts, and curry puff.

Similarly for the underprivileged community, HIA brought love and care to the vulnerable & underprivileged elderly cardboard collectors/tissue sellers, through a distribution project to bless the poor & needy elderly living in rental flats with care packs and Ang Paos. This outreach project, Love Your (Unseen) Neighbours was co-organised by HIA with contributions from our sponsor, Far East Organisation, together with active participation from more than 20 volunteers from Calvary Assembly of God Church visiting the homes of these elderly clients to befriend, share joy and peace with them.
