Passing It On To Others Who Need It More

Our Case Worker - Christopher Yu shares about the generosity and altruism of a migrant family. With the Circuit Breaker extension, our case workers have been calling in to check up on our beneficiaries to ensure that they were given the necessary support – physical, emotional and mental. They had spent the last week calling up families to arrange for a second round of care packs, which ACMI plans to distribute to vulnerable transnational families and migrant individuals.

Possible or Impossible?

Jan Recounts her Experience with Migrant Construction Workers in Singapore. After reading this part of the Pope’s message. The thought immediately came to mind. What does “logic of the world” mean?  After reading up on it, I came across an explanation: “There are things in this world which are absolute truths. And there are things in this world that are absolutely impossible. Logic only allows you to deal with true or false values. And therefore, allows you to deal with things that are absolute truths and absolute impossibilities.”  Possible of Impossible? So I asked myself: “Possible or impossible?”  Is it possible to love the migrants? …

I Found My Place Of Belonging

Theresa Shares About Her Journey In Singapore And How She Came To Find Her Place Of Belonging.  I first came to Singapore in 1982 for my studies. I came alone, not knowing anyone from here. Coming from a big family, I was the eldest of ten. My family was close-knit and my parents always taught us to look out for one another.

To make more friends, I joined several singing and choral groups. These…

Moved To Pray For Others

Ignatius Shares About The Power of Prayer. I’m always moved by the suffering of others.  I always try to put myself in the other persons shoes and try to understand their pain and sorrow.  I too have gone through some periods of pain in my life. During such periods, others have stopped, listened and loved.  Moved with Compassion. So why was I moved to feel for them?  While the reason for suffering is different, I think the feeling that the other feels is often the same.  That longing for peace, understanding and compassion.  The desire to be understood by the other person and to be loved. …

Looking at the needs of others

Daniel Yeo recounts how his eyes were open to look beyond himself and his needs. I grew up during a period of Singapore where things were quite comfortable, and I was ignorant of the poverty that existed.  Living in my own vacuum I was more concerned about my own life, career and ambitions.   All this began to change after the sudden passing of my mum. I began to ask questions on the purpose of my life and God.  Come and See... With the support of a friend, I joined the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) process to know more about God.   I learnt concepts about unconditional love, being the Good Samaritan and loving my neighbour as myself…
