Acts of Kindness, a club completely dedicated to philanthropy, had a rewarding year. The year started with celebrating Earth day in April. It was a day of being kind to our planet and members chopped vegetables at a local soup kitchen,preparing meals for 6000+ needy families.
This was followed by Mother’s Day in May, with an outreach which benefitted two social enterprise with one event - Angel Hearts, an organization for bereaving mothers and The Enabling Village, an institution supporting the differently abled. Members spent the morning creating greeting cards for fundraising and were served fresh coffee and dessertsmade by some budding baristas.
‘Thoughtful Thursday’ in October saw AOK collaborating with IWA’s Games club and the SMA (Singapore MalayaleeAssociation). IWA members had a chance to engage the elderly in an afternoon of fun and games at a newcommunity centre called Carelight Wellness Centre.
Ending the year with another lovely act of kindness, AOK celebrated Diwali of 2019 with the elderly patients at the HCA Hospice Care. Thematic activities, food, mandala artwork, gifts, music and dance were arranged to allow the IWA volunteers to have a deeper engagement with the beneficiaries.
In coming year, AOK is looking forward to strengthening relationships with our exiting partners. The club also hopes to bring new volunteering opportunities to its members.
