Interfaith Community Project at South East District
By S. Min The clock strikes twelve and many head to bed, but for a group of young people from Heart of God Church, the night has just begun! Their project? Spearheading an interfaith community initiative, giving out medical supplies to over 500 beneficiaries in the South East District of Singapore. Packing supplies into the wee hours, our volunteers weren’t alone. Friends in the community, Nanyang Leow-Sih Association and Jain Society joined them. Senior Minister of State for Defence and Foreign Affairs, Dr Maliki Osman got in on the action too! “I’m grateful for the opportunity to do something meaningful and give back to the community,” said Sean, a volunteer from HOGC. The Polytechnic fresh grad then added, “Everyone needs to try this!” Check out the video below to catch what happened the next day! Special thanks to Ministry of Culture, Community & Youth (MCCY) for the generous support. Want to find out more? The Straits Times covered the project too. Read about it HERE! Author’s note: Truly, the compassionate heart behind helping others transcends faith and racial background. I’m thankful for the opportunity to volunteer and play a part in this heartwarming initiative.
