Did you know that most substance abusers spend up to 10 years in prison?
When they are released, many lack education and social skills, family and social support, career prospects and spiritual growth, which leads them to struggle to integrate into society.
Support second chances today by joining Walking for Overcomer, an online virtual charity walk by Teen Challenge (Singapore) that aims to raise S$250,000 to support the rehabilitation of substance abusers.
All donations are eligible for tax relief of 250% of the amount donated.
Every S$50 supplies one week of food for a resident.
Every S$250 provides a session of group therapy to aid a resident’s rehabilitation.
Every S$500 provides counselling and therapeutic programmes to improve a resident’s mental well-being.
Every S$2,000 facilitates a meaningful prosocial recreational activity for a resident’s social well-being.
Walk or run any time during the campaign period. Track your steps or distance with any fitness app and submit a screenshot of the number of steps or distance covered.
Create your own Giving.sg fundraising page for Teen Challenge (Singapore). More details on how to do so can be found here.
