Wellness and meals

The programme started by Family Life Centre, a non-profit voluntary welfare organisation, aims to enrich the physical and mental health of the underprivileged who are above 50 years old, and to promote health and happiness.

The project started this month and is now in the second phase, where members visit beneficiaries to donate food items, which are mostly sponsored, and teach healthy cooking and eating.

The first phase was completed last week, when the centre performed physical and emotional medical checkups on 100 people from the blocks at Toa Payoh Lorong 5.

Because of a shortage of volunteers, the group is starting with residents in Toa Payoh, where it is based.

The third and final phase, which will be after the visits have been completed, will comprise therapeutic activities and events.

The organisation is looking for volunteers. For more details, go to
