“We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless. The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty.”
- Mother Teresa
A simple birthday celebration lets someone know they are cherished. Nothing symbolizes a birthday more than a cake adorned with candles.
In economically challenged homes, birthday celebrations and cakes are unaffordable luxuries. As a result, many of the underprivileged do not have birthday parties to celebrate their lives. To a person struggling with financial burdens, an uncelebrated birthday is a cause for despair and feelings of loneliness. You can help turn these crucial days into beacons of hope.
When children see a birthday cake with their name on it, they know that the occasion is just for them. Every child deserves that moment of being the star. Our volunteers in the Birthdays from the Heart Programme makes this possible for our beneficiaries from six welfare homes. The elderly also need to know that they are special, cherished and worth a celebration.
