RCPV Charity Walk & Picnic in Botanic Gardens

Through the contributions and active canvassing of donations by members of the Rotary Club of Pandan Valley, giving others a chance to participate and contribute, we raised a grand total of S$7,980 to help fund Life Centre Community Services' WHOLE Child literacy through reading writing and story telling programme at Canberra Street. We didn't want it to be just about fund-raising. So here we are, having a picnic in the Botanic Gardens with the children who will benefit from the programme. This picnic was after a first-time-ever experience for the kids and their parents in the Jacob Ballas Children's Garden, a giant playground in a garden within a garden setting.

The Pandemic has created so much suffering around the world and Singapore is not spared.  Many families are in need of financial helps as many sole breadwinners lost their jobs due to business closures and retrenchments.  Members of RCPV had stepped forward and donated part or full amount of their Solidarity Payments received from government for this good course.  In total, we donated $11,500.00 to People Association of Teck Ghee and the fund will provide a short term relief to 46 beneficiaries.

World Mental Health Day 10 Oct 2019

In support of World Mental Health Day on 10 October 2019, a Mental Wellness Day event was held at the Clementi Community Centre from 9am to 4pm. Key activities include screening of Dementia, Depression, Osteoporosis and Colon Cancer.
Mental Health and Wellbeing is an important issue in the workplace with high stress jobs, busy timelines and other pressures in life. Mild cognitive impairment (early dementia) is rising in prevalence. Depression is also increasing with higher suicide rates.
The Good Life Cooperative and Medical Centre with The Rotary Club of Pandan Valley and supporting partners launched the Preventive Mobile Clinic buses in conjunction with World Mental Health Day. This will improve accessibility of medical care to the community at large. The mobile clinic is fully licensed with CHAS Medisave for Chronic disease. It serves to raise awareness of preventive care of common diseases and provide preventive health assessment and management services such as screening, immunization and integrated chronic disease care. These mobile hubs will also leverage on technology, Smart Nation to track and follow-up with residents, integrating with government programmes for effective point of care testing and assessment services.
We were honoured to have the presence of Denmark’s Ambassador to Singapore H.E. Dorte Bech Vizard to grace the occasion of this launch. A recent study by Mercer and research institute Marsh & McLennan Insights measured countries’ resilence against an ageing society and job automation among older workders aged 50 and above, and the strength of their retirement system. While Singapore was found to be the most resilient in Asia, it was 13th on the index of 20 countries. The top spot went to Denmark. We could glean some insights on how Denmark has achieved this top spot.
Mdm Rahayu Mahzam, MP for Jurong GRC was our Guest of Honour for this event.
