what we do
Emotional and Moral Support
Emotional and Moral support is a key part of helping people in their times of need. Without emotional support, the human aspect of us fails to feel supported, heard, and loved.
During Covid-19 outbreak we realized leukaemia patient were facing isolation and loneliness, as they were advised to rigorously follow shielding measures in order to keep themselves safe as they were at risk of severe illness if they catch coronavirus. Following a research, we conducted that time, we found out many were feeling stuck in their minds and were unable to break the thought cycle.
We started holding emotional & moral support programme online (using zoom) once every month with an aim of providing a platform to help patients and their immediate families improve their mental well-being, break that cycle and helping them feel better about themselves and their situation. With time, we realised many needed the programme and since then we have been holding online events fortnightly, where we invite different professional from all walk of life as guest speakers. During some sessions patients are able to interact and share with other’s undergoing the same or those who have recovered.

Our food bank has been running since 2020, when the charity started arranging food parcels and medication deliveries to Leukaemia patients and their household. So far 25 household are beneficiary of this project.
