TOUCH: helping the most vulnerable citizens
Trafigura office in Singapore elected TOUCH as its 2019-2020 Charity of the Year. TOUCH Community Services is a non-profit charity whose mission is to serve the needy and disadvantaged, and offers a wide range of community programmes for elderly people, families in need, youth and people living with disabilities.
The grant provided by the Foundation will enable TOUCH to strengthen its “Special Needs Group” programme, focused on helping people living with intellectual disabilities overcome their challenges and lead an independent life.
The Singapore Charity Committee is also supporting TOUCH’s activities through the organization of staff engagement initiatives and fundraising events.
In June 2019, 17 volunteers helped clean and refurbish the houses of senior Singaporean citizens living in precarious buildings. The beneficiaries were grateful for the renovation works and felt like living in new, comfortable houses where bright LED lightings, white fresh paints and new furniture radically improved their quality of life.Expand / Collapse
