Our Programmes

The Home requires a monthly average of about $120,000 for its operations. About 40% of this cost is provided by the Ministry of Social & Family Development as a grant based on the number of children in residence.  However, the major part of the Home’s operational costs is funded by donations from corporations, organised groups and well-wishing individuals.

Continued support from donors is greatly appreciated so that we can continue to provide quality residential care and meals, therapeutic and developmental services, enrichment and recreational programmes, and facilities management for the betterment of our residents' interests and needs.
