YWCA Preschool @ Pasir Ris has been working with All Saints Home for seven years, bringing cheer and love to the residents during the Christmas season.

Traditionally, we will bring our children to the home around Christmas time to visit the elderly and interact with them. However, in 2022, we were unable to do so due to COVID-19  pandemic restrictions.

The pandemic has exacerbated the issue of social isolation, especially among the elderly living in homes. Not wanting the elderly to feel left out in this festive season, we decided to spearhead a dry ration donation drive.

We wrote to parents seeking for dry rations to contribute to All Saint Home (Tampines).  Many parents generously chipped in, offering their time and resources. When all the donations were collected, the K2 children helped to sort and pack the items into YWCA plastic bags.  

On 14 December 2021, Mdm Ho and Teacher Adelinn delivered the donated items to All Saints Home with the help of two parents from the Parent Support Group. We brought their two children from K1 and K2 with us.  

This donation drive not only blessed the elderly but also served as a good bonding time between parents, children and teachers. Additionally, it was a great opportunity for us to teach the children to love, respect, and be kind towards the elderly.
