Our Programmes: Shelter Homes

Gift of Love Home

Gift of Love Home is a destitute home in partnership with the Missionaries of Charities. It is home to frail elderly, who may require some forms of assistance in their daily living. The Home was opened in 1987 in Pungol and moved to Marymount Centre in 1988 through the generousity of the Good Shephered Sisters. It now takes care of about 40 elderly residents, many of whom were neglected or abandoned by their next-of-kin.

The mission is to quench the infinite Thirst of Jesus on the Cross by labouring for the Sanctification and Salvation of souls, especially the poorest of the poor, by working closely with these the poorest of the poor, sharing in their poverty, making a difference by our Witness of Love with wholehearted free service to them, accepting them as God's Beloved Children.

The Home, managed by the MC Sisters, relies heavily on volunteers to cook, bathe and help the residents in many other ways. Social, recreational and keep-fit activities are organized for the elderly of both Homes regularly.
