Jurong Central - Project Hand in Hand

CBLD works “Hand-in-Hand” in Project by Jurong Community Centre!

CBLD is honoured to have had the opportunity to participate in the latest Project Hand-in-Hand event on 27 February 2016.  Graced by the Guest-of-Honour Mr Ang Wei Neng, MP for Jurong GRC, this community event was organised by Jurong Central GROs (People’s Association) with support from the Singapore Totaliser Board.  It aimed to reach out to a group of elderly, disabled and low-income income individuals or families living in public rented residential flats in the Jurong Central district by giving out food and essential items.  Deserving residents were also recognised and rewarded, such as a resident who helped his neighbour paint his flat after it caught fire.

Staff from CBLD  introduced the residents to a career in cleaning, and brought our partners in the cleaning industry along to help those who are interested look for a job in the cleaning industry while CBLD provides training to equip them with the skills and knowledge needed for the job.   All in all, it was a meaningful morning spent getting to know the residents, handing out the event goodie bags, and offering them an opportunity for a new skill and career.

CBLD certainly looks forward to more opportunities in participating such events with Jurong Community Centre and other community centres and agencies.
