NCA contributes to the Breadline Group who supports physically handicapped elderly, people that cannot sustain themselves, or families that cannot survive without financial help.
Another charitable organisation we support is SILRA, one of the few charities in Singapore that support leprosy survivors in their living. Mostly elderly, these people don’t have a place to go to due to shame or being abandoned by their families and the community they used to live in. The funds we raise for this charity organisation are put to good use and our monthly Bingo brings a bit of joy in the sometimes hard lives of these leprosy survivors.
There is a large group of foreign domestic workers that so much characterises the Singaporean society. This is a group of individuals in Singapore that don’t have as many privileges as non-foreign domestic workers and sometimes need special care. For this reason one of the other charitable organisations NCA supports is HOME, short for Humanitarian Organisation for Migration Economics. They help vulnerable woman who don’t know where to turn to, mostly so far away from home.
Just like the Good Shepherd Centre; a shelter for teens, woman, mothers and their children who have a history of abuse and sometimes even victimisation. These women cannot stay in their own safe homes and the Good Shepherd Centre gives them this: a safe place to call home.
The latest addition to the charitable organisations that NCA supports is Project Pari by Zonta. It concentrates on providing a future for underprivileged teenage girls. Girls whose parents cannot give them the future they deserve. A future that is not only important to these girls, but also for the Singaporean community as a whole. The community we all live in, the community NCA wants to give back to.
