ACTS (A Call To Share) SINGAPORE founded in 2006, aim to provide assistance to promote education and basic healthcare for the less fortunate in Cambodia. Today, volunteers have grown from an initial 25 to now over 500 involving multi-parishes, various tertiary institutions (local and overseas), and people from different religious background. We have also extended beyond Cambodia to Myanmar, Philippines and Vietnam. Our missions encompass the construction and repair of schools and medical centres, power and clean water programs, vocational training, an Oil & Food Initiative and the start up of social enterprise developments.
The annual ACTS Gala Dinner is our annual fundraiser to support on-going initiatives and new projects. We are deeply grateful for all the continuous interest and generous donations.
“It’s raining!” exclaimed 10-year old Foh as he tapped my hand and pointed me to the window behind. For what seems like an ordinary (read: obvious) comment, the boy had turned to his teacher volunteer, uttered strings of Vietnamese then plucked up courage to break the ice with the puzzled stranger in front of him with a simple and unpretentious attempt.
ACTS Vietnam Mission 2016 to the Selasian Sisters convent at Tam Ha was held from 4 to 8 June 2016. Over the short span of 4 days at the convent, the 13-members team, headed by Elizabeth and Ming Heng, painted a mural on the wall, educated the children on “teething troubles” and healthy dental care habits, distributed love parcels (aka welfare packs) to the beneficiaries, led the children in music & dance, sports & games, art & crafts and imparted them bite-sized knowledge in fun and engaging ways.
