Looking Ahead

This year ANZA Action has been lucky enough to not only be able to work with wonderful charities here in Singapore, but also begin working with a new charity, Babes Pregnancy Crisis Support.

Our fabulous charity partners are always in need of volunteers, so we’ve gathered a list of groups you can get in contact with to begin changing some lives.

Melrose Home

Melrose Home is a professional and progressive charity whose mission is to nurture, motivate and develop young persons in need of care – providing residential care for children. Melrose Home is updating some of their rooms and need your help. ANZA will help update the counselling rooms in June to make them more ‘kid friendly’. If you can help out with a working bee to prepare the rooms, all help will be gratefully accepted – from sewers, knitters and crafters to painters. Do you have an old video game consoles, and can help install them? Melrose Home would love to upgrade their games room for the kids.

Babes Pregnancy Crisis Support

Come and help out at Babes Day on Friday 12 May from noon. ANZA members will be taking photos of the mums and bubs, taking yoga and stretching classes as well as helping with other activities. If you have an instant camera we can borrow, or dress up props for the girls and babies, or just want to volunteer your time, please email anzaaction@anza.org.sg

Ronald Macdonald House

Can you spare four hours on a Monday once a month? If so, then Ronald Macdonald House at NUH could do with your help to staff the front desk – email anzaaction@anza.org.sg

Salvation Army

ANZA supports the Salvation Army Family Support Services with their food distribution programme for the elderly. Packing is done on a Monday and delivery on a Tuesday. You would be rostered on approximately once a month – email anzaaction@anza.org.sg.

Do you love horses? If so, have you thought about being a sidewalker for Riding for the Disabled? Help kids learn to ride, and help one of ANZA’s favourite charities at the same time. For more information, please email volunteer@rdasingapore.org.sg
