In university, church awarded me a scholarship. This allowed me to use my time to volunteer in the community. I even won the NextGen Young Community Leader Award presented by Emeritus Senior Minister Goh Chok Tong.
Heart Community Services (HCS) was established in 2008 to provide financial and educational support, as well as social services to the local community.
Through HCS, pocket money, opportunity grants and scholarships are disbursed to young people from less well-to-do backgrounds, or whose families are going through a financial crisis.
To everyone who donated to HCS, thank you for your generosity! We hope these stories of beneficiaries impacted will encourage you and warm your heart. For more information on HCS including ways you can give, click here.
At 17, I was placed on our church's fund that provides financial support for youths with less well-to-do backgrounds. Because of God, I have faith and hope for my life. Because of church, I am believed in, encouraged and built.
