Many low income who are physically/ mentally challenged senior elderly comes from the forgotten low income cluster of Singapore, has been staying alone for the past years in rental flat. Most of them have no other immediate family to rely on.
It has been made known that the 2G network across all telcos in Singapore will cease with effect of 1st April 2017. This decision will have a significantly impact on the older folks, who has been relying on the 2G network for calling and simple texting for their daily communication needs. They now need to fork out additional cost reluctantly for the more expensive and complex data plans that they do not need.
Helping Joy is aware of the challenges that the elderly are facing given that the cell phone is a critical tool to keep in contact and most importantly request for help in the event of emergency.
In order to support these elderly in transiting to the 3G network, we are doing what we could to help by starting this fundraising for them so that we can provide a simple 3G network mobile phone to them to contact us or even seek assistance from other organisation whenever they need help . Especially to those who are suffering from some illnesses and requires regular attention and badly needs a mobile phone. Please help us bring a little joy to them with your kind donation.
