(May 2014) Children from Melrose Home joined 4Life® distributors and 4Life Singapore staff members for a fun and educational outing at the River Safari. Melrose Home provides a supportive residential environment for children between the ages of three and 18 whose parents or family members are unable to care for them. For the event, the 4Life group provided transportation, lunch, and backpacks with a water bottle and snacks for the kids. The 4Life group brought laughter and joy to the children and everyone really enjoyed the day.
During the outing, everyone learned about different rivers of the world and the wildlife that live near them. Several 4Life distributors attended, including Platinum International Diamonds Sadik Din and Hasnimah, and Gold International Diamonds Sheri Din, Akram Din, Fadzli Salim and Siti Zuraidah, Salim Raghavan and Noor Azlina, and Nadzrul Salim and Nadirah Ahmad. Prior to the event, the Singapore office held a fundraising drive to encourage distributors to donate to the service effort. Together with Foundation 4Life, they raised SGD 10,000. This amount will be used to help fund Melrose Home’s yearly operational costs.
"It’s wonderful to spend time with the children supported by Foundation 4Life projects to help them feel the love of the 4Life family, create stronger relationships with the organization, and ultimately, build lives. While 4Life Singapore makes donations to this group throughout the year, it’s also important for the kids to know they are cared about in a personal way.""
“During this trip, I learned to be more patient, loving, and forgiving,” commented Singapore Senior Office Manager Serene Tay. “I am proud to take part in Foundation 4Life activities.”
“It was wonderful for us to spend a day with the children from Melrose Home,” remarked Gold International Diamonds Sheri Din and Akram Din. “We had a great time playing and drawing together.”
