De Silva is one of 41,000+ seniors in Singapore who live alone. With little social support after his daughter passed away, he was not only lonely, but susceptible to falling. Now, he has company and support thanks to Community-Led Action for REsilience (C.L.A.R.E) volunteers.
WHAT WE DO
Community-Led Action for REsilience (C.L.A.R.E.) mobilises and empowers community volunteers to care for and build resilience of the vulnerable, through outreach and humanitarian services.
WHO WE HELP
The C.L.A.R.E. programme brings help to the disabled, elderly and children who are wheelchair-bound and have chronic diseases or other medical conditions for which they are required to go for regular treatments, therapy or check-ups.
Most of the beneficiaries are referred by social workers from public hospitals and welfare organisations.
