About Us

Merry christmas! (1)HEN (Helping and Empowering our Neighbours) was set up in March 2018 as a welfare organisation wholly run by volunteers who share the same drive and passion to help the underprivileged communities in Singapore to rise above their poverty.


We were officially registered as a society in Singapore under the Registry of Societies in Dec 2018 and have been registered as a charity in Singapore with the Charity Commissioners since March 2020.

Our Vision is to be a leading charity organisation in Singapore to help eradicate poverty.

Our Mission is to :

  • Help low income families of single parent background in Singapore rise above their poverty with monetary assistance and
  • Empower each and every member of the single parent family with life long skills

We would like to Transform Tomorrow Together Today!

There are more than 150,000 families in Singapore who earn less than $650 a month and they need our assistance.

Our donors and volunteers made it possible to continue helping these families throughout this year. To continue our important work in giving hope to the families, we seek your kind donations. It just takes $50 a month to buy food rations to help these families.

We have been featured in our national newspaper The Straits Times on 18th Dec 2019! What a great way for our efforts to get recognised.

Visit our Press Release page for more details!

We are currently assisting 50 single-parent families in different parts of Singapore with monthly NTUC vouchers worth $50. Our goal is to help a 100 families by year end and for that we would need your kind donation.

Thank you Nilofar and team for helping us in our reading program at Lakeside Family Services. The volunteers were proactive and enthusiastic in arranging for our Children’s day and Graduation day program apart from our regular weekly reading sessions held in our center. Our children thoroughly enjoyed the games, magic show and other fun filled activities during these two events organised by the volunteers. They also looked forward for their buddy reading volunteer in the weekly sessions. Thank you (HEN) and the team again. We look forward for continued partnership in the coming year as well in our children’s programs.
