SMSV is looking for 11 medical students to participate in our inaugural local missions programme. This will be held from 2 January 2016 to 9 January 2016.
This year, our local missions program would be focussing on ‘Singapore’s Forgotten Communities’, where we will be interacting with the migrant worker population, the elderly population living in one room flats, and physically and intellectually handicapped orphans. This will involve the following activities:
– Sports Day
– Work Safety education
– Chronic Disease education
– basic health screenings
– STD education for the migrant workers
– Work Site visitation
– JB orphanage visitation
– Willing Hearts
– Healthserve, a not-for-profit clinic for migrant workers
This programme aims to expose participants to communities that they would otherwise have little contact with. Do take note that there will be a day trip to JB to visit the orphanage and that some of these sessions (e.g. education sessions for the migrant workers and work site visitations) will take place at night.
We strongly encourage you to sign up for this programme to do your part for these commonly forgotten communities in Singapore. Registration opens at 8pm on 3rd August 2015 online. Click here to access the registration form
