Every action makes a giant difference

Here's to Our Volunteers

The Ministry of Social and Family Development has designated 2024 as the Year of Celebrating Volunteers (YCVolunteers). This is to recognise and celebrate the contributions of volunteers in the social sector and beyond. 

The YCVolunteers campaign aims to continue to promote a strong giving culture in Singapore, as we strengthen our social compact and build our shared future together. Beyond creating impact on those they serve, volunteers also gained personally from the experience. The impact will grow when volunteerism is more structured and we are moving beyond ad hoc efforts to sustained impact.

Everyone has a part to play to build a caring and inclusive society. We invite individuals and corporates to start their volunteering journey today and work alongside MSF, volunteer organisations, including social service agencies, to experience the joys of volunteering by contributing your skills and time today.

Mr & Mrs Patil
Helping families find support

Amidst the flurry of vaccination appointments and worried faces in early 2022, the couple stepped up as Families for Life (FFL) volunteer leaders at Children Vaccination Centres (CVCs). Providing bright smiles and Becky Bunny badges, they transformed the atmosphere from nervous to playful. Continuing their volunteering journey with FFL, their energy was contagious, like a sprinkle of pixie dust that made everyone eager to give back.
