Community Contribution - The Lions Home for the Elders

  In 1977, The Lions Home for the Elders was developed and established at a HDB void deck at Ang Mo Kio Avenue 10. With 18 beds, the Home was one of the first non-profit sanctuaries built by a service organisation and dedicated to providing shelter for the elder destitute. Seven years later, the Lions Clubs in Singapore responded to the Government's call for voluntary service organisations to build and operate Homes by establishing the Lions Nursing Home. Renovated from a World War II bunker, the Home at Toa Payoh Rise officially opened in November 1985 with a capacity for 45 elderly sick residents needing nursing care In response to the growing need of the aged in Singapore, the Lions, with the help of the Government, raised the necessary funds to build a new Home at Bedok. The cost of building this Home was a massive S$12 million.

In March 1997, the Lions Home for the Elders became operational at its new premises. Located at the junction of Bedok South Road and Bedok South Avenue 2, the Bedok Home can accommodate up to 160 residents in need of nursing care.

On 16 November 1997, the Lions Home for the Elders was officially opened by Mr Yeo Cheow Tong, Minister for Health and the Environment.

In 1987, they established the world's first publicly-funded subsidised dialysis programme. Today, they have grown to become the single largest not-for-profit dialysis provider in the world. Their medial outcomes are outstanding and comparable to the world's best.

The NKF raises more than US$35 million a year in donations. With a total population of only 4 million Singaporeans, the NKF has had to develop and maintain strong relationship building programmes with its donors to continuously nurture and retain the support of the public. As a result, the NKF generates high donations whereby nearly two out of every three Singaporeans donate to the Foundation with a per capita contribution of US$16 from each citizen in the Country.

Goh Joo Hin Pte Ltd has also done its part by donating to the Foundation. A monetary contribution was made by the company in support of dialysis for elderly patients.

Assembling the World's Largest Rice Dumpling - A Guinness World Record Attempt - Charity event in support for METTA Welfare Association

  It was certainly no mean feat - getting so many people together for a Guinness World Record attempt to form the world's largest display of rice dumplings. Our aim was to try to break the existing record held by a Hong kong-based company for 10,102 rice dumplings.

We found willing partners in Jurong Junior College (JJC) students, whom together with their Physics Head, Mr Yong Kek Shoong, decided to help us in devising a plan to build the world's largest rice dumplings display. The Mili brand, which recently won Singapore's Promising Brand Award for Goh Joo Hin Pte Ltd, a leading food and beverage, healthcare products and IT and audio products company, sponsored a ready supply of canned mushrooms which went into goodie bags given out to the public when they purchased a $5 coupon to adopt a rice dumpling.

The Racial and Religious Unity Steering Commitee in Central Singapore District (TRUST Central) provided funding for the record attempt which we used to buy tens of thousands of 'khee' rice dumplings and to produce marketing collaterals. We even managed to get professional audit services sponsored by Smalley & Co, whose auditors kindly audited the number of rice dumplings.

JJC students with some Metta staff flooded the streets of Orchard during the weekend of 12-14 July to sell coupons. We also set up stall at the Central CDC's racial harmony event, 'Celebrating the Singapore Rojak' held at Orchard Park. The student volunteers did a roaring business selling adoption tickets and giving away goodie bags. The other students formed a core team and smaller sub-teams to sort the thousands of dumplings. Thanks to Orchard Parade Hotel, the students were given free accomodation and were able to embark on their Guinness World attempt in the early hours of Sunday morning. The auditors followed their whole-day efforts closing, and studiously counted each dumpling that was to form part of the structure.

"It was a most fulfilling and enriching time for my student and I as we discussed how to think of the best way to form the structure, and making sure it is secure and stable. We really enjoyed ourselves and felt happy that we could help to raise funds for Metta in this most meaningful way as well as help break a Guinness World Record," said Mr Yong of JJC.

"To us, this project has an added significance as the dumplings were wrapped with four different colours to represent the differrent races of Singapore," explained Mr Yong.

By 5 pm, a total of 13,192 rice dumplings were used to form the one-metre tall structure with sides 3.88m by 3.69m by 3.62m. The crowds broke into louds cheers as the Mayor of Central Signapore CDC, Heng Chee How, gamely placed the final four rice dumplings onto the structure.

The dumplings were later distributed to charity homes in the Central Singapore District and given out to Central CDC residents. The event was very well received by the public and local media - it was reported in many newspapers and television news.
