Calvary community care
Calvary Community Care (C3) is a not-for-profit voluntary welfare organization registered in March 2010. Our mission is to serve the needy in the community regardless of race, age, gender or religion.

The Befriending programme seeks to alleviate loneliness of the elderly. C3 offers supportive, reliable relationships through volunteer befrienders to people who would otherwise be socially isolated.
Many elderly (above age 65) live alone or are left alone during the day while their children are at work. Even when the elderly live with others in the household they are often left alone as relationships may be estranged or their housemates maybe busy with their own work and lives.
Our Active Aging programme encourages seniors to stay healthy and active, both physically and mentally. Through a wide array of activities we seek to engage the seniors and enrich their life experiences.
We seek ambulant elderly aged 65 years and above who are seeking to be active and engaged in the community. If you have some spare time on your hands do come and join us for our activities.
Our vision is to be a respected charity serving the needy out of love for them relating to them holistically as individuals.
