The Marymount Centre

The Centre offers a home-like and safe environment where the women and children learn to live responsibly and independently.

These programmes include Counselling and Therapy, Group Living, Life Skills Training, Recreational, Wellness and Spiritual Support.

Ahuva Good Shepherd provides nurturing and safe residential care to girls aged between 4 and 16 years old. These girls come from single parent families or from families in which parents are not able to cope with the child and/or experiencing marital discord.


The Red Cross Home for the Disabled

Established in 1952, the Red Cross Home for the Disabled is a residential home for those with multiple disabilities, and operates a Day Activity Centre providing day care services.

With a team of dedicated nursing professionals, therapy and healthcare aides, physiotherapists as well as occupational and speech therapists, we provide quality care to those who are unable to care for themselves due to their unfortunate disabilities.

We focus on enhancing the physical, mental, social and emotional well-being of more than 100 residents - adults and children. We also encourage regular family visits and home leaves during festive periods, for the benefit of the residents.

We provide day care services to those who can return home to their loved ones in the evenings. Specialised transportation service is also provided by our TransportAid programme, which picks up the beneficiaries in the morning and brings them home at the end of the day.

Today, we serve more than 100 beneficiaries at our Home. Our presence means that their caregivers and family members, potentially hundreds more, can go about their livelihoods and earn a living, with the assurance that their loved ones are well cared for, at a home away from home.

Some residents stay with us to receive professional care and families visit regularly; others reside at the Home without known families; still others have been with us since their young age and have grown at the Red Cross Home for the Disabled.
