aRWSome Wishes is an initiative to reach out to the community during the festive Christmas period. It started in 2011 with the support of five CDCs where 500 less privileged children penned their Christmas wishes and had them granted by the RWS’ team members.
In 2014, children, families and senior citizens, wished for shavers, bicycles and even wheelchairs which the RWS team members granted.
On 18 December 2014, RWS Volunteers shared the RWS “Kampung Spirit” with the elderly at St. Vincent’s Home. The volunteers came early to put up Christmas decorations and readied the home for a festive celebration. Some of the activities included playing bingo and singing classic songs together.
At lunch, the volunteers got the chance to interact with the elderly more intimately. At the end of the event, goodie bags with food supplies and daily necessities were given out.
