On behalf of Caritas Singapore, I would like to extend our deepest appreciation for your contribution towards Charities Week 2023.
Your generous donation is a testament to your compassion and commitment to helping those in need within our community during a time when the profound impact of the Covid-19 pandemic and an economic downturn left many feeling uncertain and vulnerable.
Blessed with the boundless love and generosity of compassionate donors like yourself, $7,138,965 was raised through Charities Week 2023. We are encouraged in our mission to serve the poor, as we witness the unwavering support of the Catholic community from collections across the archdiocese as summarised in the following consolidated table.
The funds raised during Charities Week will be allocated to 29 programmes operated by Caritas Singapore’s member organisations. These encompass student care outreach programmes, crisis support for pregnant women, a learning lab for seniors, pro-bono legal services, and much more.
Furthermore, the funds will also be utilised to support parish programmes, including financial aid and food provisions for the underprivileged, migrant assistance, dementia support services, and bursary awards.
Your contribution through Charities Week 2023 will fund the invaluable work carried out by the Caritas Singapore family as we stand united in our mission to uplift our brothers and sisters in need by delivering critical services to all those who depend on us and our member organisations.
If you have any suggestions on how we can enhance Charities Week in the future, we kindly invite you to share your feedback by completing our feedback form at https://forms.microsoft.com/r/StB9Ygx82q. We greatly value your input and will carefully consider every suggestion to improve our efforts in the coming years.
Once again, we express our heartfelt gratitude for your unwavering support, and we pray that God's love continues to guide and inspire our actions.
