Here are some places that will welcome you and your family:
Willing Hearts – Cooks meals for distribution to the needy.
Habitat for Humanity Singapore’s Project HomeWorks programme -Improves the living conditions of the elderly, the sick and the physically-challenged staying at one-room flats.
You can also volunteer at home by offering hospitality to an international student in Singapore.
Check out Host Family Programme at the National University of Singapore. Consider inviting a student to your home to celebrate a local festival!
For families who love animals, do think about providing foster care to an animal until it finds a home. Check out: House Rabbit Society Singapore.
Visit SG Cares for creative ideas on how you can volunteer. It’s where organisations post needs for volunteers to help with mahjong sessions, cutting hair and cycling to raise funds. Sign up for their Volunteer Orientation programme if you are doing so for the first time.
Organisations and their beneficiaries (both people and pets!) will appreciate that you thought of them. And, your family will grow in their understanding of what is important to you as a dad, as this is a really great way to communicate values as well as surface, hidden strengths and talents for all involved.
