What we're about

Be Kind SG is a ground-up movement (GUM) that aims to promote Kindness and increase volunteerism through various Micro-volunteering opportunities. We organize volunteering activities to outreach to various ‘invisible’ communities such as adults and seniors with intellectual disabilities, and children and youths with special needs.

#CraftForGood. Craft colouring sheets & party hats for our communities

Hi Kind Souls! Let's make this Good Friday an even better one! For the April session, we will be drawing coloring sheets and crafting party hats for Renci patients and residents from MWH and THK Home for the Disabled@Sembawang. We hope to bring some simple joy to them with our drawings and hand-crafted hats. Our beneficiaries: Moral Welfare Home (http://www.thkms.org.sg/angsana-home/) Moral Welfare Home is a purpose-built facility that cares for the destitute suffering from multiple disabilities. About 80% of the residents are intellectually disabled. Ren Ci Hospital (http://www.renci.org.sg/about-us/) Ren Ci, when translated in Chinese, stands for “compassion” or “benevolence”. Established since 1994, Ren Ci Hospital is one of the few charity healthcare institutions in Singapore to provide affordable medical, nursing and rehabilitative care services for the community. Most of the long-staying residents in our homes come from low income families, while some are destitute. THK Home for Disabled @ Sembawang (http://www.thkmc.org.sg/services_detail/thk-home-for-disabled-sembawang/) THKMC established the THK Home for Disabled @ Sembawang in April 2018 to provide long-term residential care for adults aged between 16 and 55 years old diagnosed with intellectual disabilities (ID) and/or Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), or other co-morbidities. • What to bring: Just yourself and a dose of fun and creativity! Not an artistic person? Fret not, we will be providing all materials, including stationery and past sample artworks for your reference. Nonetheless, it will be great if you could bring along examples of artworks with some local elements, e.g. local landmarks, fruits and food (to create & draw coloring sheets). You are also free to bring along your own craft materials, if you would like to share them (for crafting of cards)! • Important to know Please kindly note that photos of this volunteering event will be taken for publicity purposes for Be Kind SG and Naiise. These photos will not be used for any other purposes. Should you be unable to attend, please update your RSVPs, as attendance will be taken! :)
