Bringing Love to Every Single Soul – BLESS
Youth (Institutional) Category Winner
Francesca Wah, Chairperson
Being a non-profit organisation that actively engages the community with a vision to engage, enrich and empower the lives of the less privileged, BLESS’s primary target beneficiaries are the people in the bottom rung of our society, such as residents staying in one/two rooms rental flats and young children with dysfunctional families. BLESS’s mission is not solely to help the community but rather, to provide a scaffold that helps the community to help themselves. Their work aims to involve the ordinary persons to step out and provide only what they are willing to give, in an empowering manner.
Like resident volunteers reading to underprivileged children; the mobile elderly reaching out to the isolated elderly and bakeries baking special birthday cakes for every underprivileged child. Believing that each person and entity has their own unique strength and with a little giving from everyone, the community as a whole can be more wholesome, BLESS envisions a Singapore where everyone cares and provides for one another.
Bringing Love to Every Single Soul – BLESS was nominated for the Youth (Institutional) Category for the SSH Awards 2016. They were the selected winner and received award from Guest of Honour: Mr. Ong Ye Kung –Acting Minister for Education (Higher Education and Skills) and Senior Minister of State, Ministry of Defence, at Shangri-La Hotel on 27th September 2016.
