Care for the Elderly Foundation (Singapore)  CEF (S) (   Homepage : & e-mail: ) is a voluntary welfare
organisation which was founded in 1995 by a Buddhist organisation to provide
holistic community care services to the poor, sick and needy elderly.  It is
also an affiliate member of National Council of Social Service (NCSS), but
it is not in receipt of any financial grants from the Government or any
funding from the Community Chest.

Each year, the Foundation has to raise at least S$ 600,000 to run its daily
programmes, such as Medical and Nursing Care Service, Equipment Loan
Service, Home Help Service and Health Screen Clinic Service.  In
order to cater to the needs of the increasing number of sick elderly, they
are in the process of establishing a multi-service Community Care Centre
(CCC) at Pasir Ris New Town, which would comprise a 120 beds Nursing Home,
an Elderly Medical Centre and an Elderly Charitable Organisation.  The total
fund needed to develop this CCC is estimated to be S$ 13,000,000 (Singapore
Dollar Thirteen Million).

This is the first CEF (S) Flag Day to raise fund for the various community
care services for the elderly.  Your company's / Your involvement and
support would be vital to ensure the success of this fund raising project.
