A secular, non-affiliated charity, Willing Hearts is wholly run by volunteers, apart from a handful of staff. It operates a soup kitchen that prepares, cooks and distributes about 5,000 daily meals to over 40 locations island wide, 365 days a year. Beneficiaries include the elderly, the disabled, low income families, children from single parent families or otherwise poverty stricken families, and migrant workers in Singapore.
Willing Hearts is a registered as a society with the Ministry of Home Affairs since February 2005 and as a charity with the Ministry of Ministry of Social and Family Development since December 2008.
Just as another opportunity to serve the poor and give back to the needy, the UAP Singapore Chapter find a meaningful way to share happiness through serving in Willing Hearts – Soup Kitchen Foundation. The volunteers did not mind sweating over peeling of onions and cutting of potatoes, but enjoyed the moment of camaraderie and generosity. It was like a hard yet sweet labor where the participants get to enjoy and share a bit of their time in helping to ease some kitchen works for the benefit of the needy people recipient of the Soup Kitchen project. It was an outreach turned relaxing and day-off work for the UAPS members, also joined by friends and volunteers from diverse groups.
Registration starts at March 12, 2018, Monday, 1:00 p.m.
