Bethel Social Services

Following the 3 Principles of Singapore’s Social Safety Net – self-reliance, family as the first line of support, and the Many Helping Hands (MMH), we strive to help individual and families to become self-reliant in the long run.

In cases where those who fall through the cracks of the social safety net and are in need of social assistance, Bethel Community Services strives to empower these individuals and provide temporary financial assistance and/or food rations. We are currently serving residents who are residing in Paya Lebar Way, Pipit Road, Circuit Road, Aljunied Road, Balam Road, Geylang East and Sims Drive.

Our services include:

1. Information and Referral Service
To link individuals and families with appropriate help agencies and resources in the community.

SHOP & DONATE! – A joint collaboration with NTUC FairPrice

In 2018, Bethel Community Services (BCS) has partnered with NTUC FaiPrice for the Shop & Donate! Programme. Shop and Donate is an online giving platform hosted on NTUC FairPrice on its website, whereby charitable organizations may provide their wish list for members of the public to support.

BCS has customized a grocery wish list for the low-income families through choosing the items that are listed on the Fair Price website (www.fairprice.com.sg/DonatetoSSOrg#bethelCommunityServices). The Shop and Donate! initiative encourages the community to come together and help the less fortunate through grocery donations.

These basic food necessities will be donated to the low-income families in our community, which will go a long way to help them. Often, these families may not even have the means to buy these groceries to meet their basic needs. A small donation by you of any amount is definitely helpful to them.

Donors may wish to donate items according to what they feel is good to fulfill the wish list we have put up. Through the Shop and Donate! Initiative you can play a part in making a difference to those in need. We would also like to express our appreciation to NTUC FairPrice for giving us and other donors the opportunity to bless these families.

Make a difference today!
