Greetings from Lions Befrienders!

Lions Befrienders (LB) is an established local voluntary welfare organization (VWO) that reaches out to the vulnerable seniors in Singapore who are at risk of social isolation. Our mission is to provide friendship and care for seniors to age in place with community participation, enabling them to enjoy meaningful and enriching lives.

Flag sellers are ambassadors for Lions Befrienders for a day! Join us in our mission to alleviate social isolation amongst seniors whilst empowering them to live independently in our community. Volunteers will be able to incur co-curricular activities (CCA) points if required. We hope that you can help to post in the portal to help us get flag sellers.

Camp REConnection calling for Volunteers

Posted by VolunteerSG Admin | Posted in Call for Volunteers | Posted on 19-10-2016

Camp REConnection is a project initiative started in 2014 by Ren Ci Hospital, targeted at post-secondary students. NUS USP [National University of Singapore (University Scholars Programme)], in collaboration with Ren Ci Hospital will be organizing a 4-day camp with the objective of reconnecting the elderly and youths of today. On behalf of NUS USP, we are writing to seek your assistance in publicising Ren Ci Hospital and NUS USP’s camp collaboration. 

Aimed at youth participants between 16 and 19 years old, we hope to raise awareness of the problems that beleaguer the elderly sector in Singapore, particularly the elderly who require long-term care. The 4-day camp shall comprise a combination of theoretical and practical activities, culminating in an outdoor activity with the elderly. Through exposing the youths to the difficulties faced by the elderly in their daily lives, we hope to stimulate their thought and compassion, thereby helping them to better empathise with the older generation. Participants can look forward to an enriching line-up of programmes, including dialect lessons as well as fun activities such as gardening with the elderly. One of the highlights of  this  year’s camp is the talks on Singapore’s population  landscape,  eldercare  and  policies  pertaining  to  our  silver  generation by healthcare professionals in the professionals in the eldercare industry such as Council for Third Age. These programmes will be held at Ren Ci Nursing Home, which will give students a unique first-hand experience in interacting with the elderly residents. 

Our previous two runs of the programme had garnered very positive feedback from our participants. Many reflected that they gained a better understanding of the needs and difficulties of the elderly, and were also able to communicate with the elderly more effectively. 

Details of Camp REConnection III

Dates                         : 12th to 15th December 2016

Time                           : 9am to 5pm

Registration Fees       : $10 (inclusive of daily lunch) 

Registration is open from now until 31 October 2016. Interested youths can sign up by registering online via http://tinyurl.com/camprec3signup. CIP hours will also be awarded to participants in appreciation of their time spent interacting with the elderly residents.

CareNights calling for Volunteers

Morning Star was formed in 1999 to enrich and strengthen family relationships in Singapore. We were registered as an independent non-profit, voluntary welfare organization in 2002 and became a member of the National Council of Social Service and serve people of all races and religions. Our core services include student care, individualized learning intervention for struggling pupils, parenting and couple workshops and trainings and counselling for individuals, families and groups.

Our most recent programme is CareNights @ Morning Star, which started operations in March this year at Blk 95 Bedok North Avenue 4 (by day this is Primavera Student Care Centre), Mon to Fri, 6pm to 10pm. It is the first programme in Singapore that provides night care for less privileged children aged 6-14 to offer their stressed parents an opportunity for caregiving respite or a chance to improve their earning capacity by taking night classes/upgrading courses.

CareNights follows an upstream and early intervention approach whereby we focus on character formation through virtues inculcation and socio-emotional learning so that the children can meet the requirements of schools, prioritize and make responsible decisions themselves and behave appropriately in different contexts. A sensible child is an encouragement to parents.

While they are at CareNights, the children are provided a safe and positive environment. The programmes at CareNights focus on virtues formation, wellness of the children, social responsibility, development and curiosity and regulation of emotional and mental well-being. We provide academic coaching and other skill-based activities for the children (Speech and Drama, Art and Crafts, Sports and Games, Dance, Movie/Music Appreciation). Dinner and light refreshments are also provided to the kids at our centre.

 We are in need of volunteers who can teach academic subjects (English, Science, Maths, Mother Tongue), help to deliver our values formation programme, and lead the children in the above-mentioned skilled-based activities. We are also open to other areas where volunteers can contribute.
