Our donors, sponsors and partners were invaluable before, during and beyond the pandemic to meet the urgent needs of community elders. Care packages and home appliances were delivered directly to homes of singleton elders. Many volunteers reported how this simple act of human contact brought cheer to lonely elders. Volunteers produced Cheers4Elders videos to share with elder facility partners.

During pandemic-induced lockdown, many singleton elders could not access daily supplies. Our donors and supporters responded quickly, enabling Mighty Oaks to deliver over 10,000 care packages: masks, test kits and food. Forty-five volunteers and sixty-five programme partners packed and distributed care packages.
These packages addressed urgent needs and reminded singleton elders that they were not forgotten. Many elders shared that the visits and personal connection made them feel cared for.
Whilst gifting home appliances, we met an eighty-year-old singleton elder with a serious leg injury. There were only two windows in the room he lived. The new circulation fan gifted to him immediately helped to create better air circulation. Despite initially feeling embarrassed, he soon expressed appreciation for our visit and chats. In the end, he did not want us to leave.

“Ah Yi and her eight-year-old son called me every Sunday. They would ask me how I was doing and reminded me to pay attention to personal hygiene when I went out. I am a singleton elder. Living alone can sometimes be lonely, so receiving their calls makes me happy and I would like to say thank you to them.”
