ABOUT
  •  

     

    Willing Hearts is a secular, non-affiliated charity that is almost 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.

    Join us to support the vulnerable within our communities by lending your time and hands at Willing Hearts soup kitchen. Volunteers will do a single shift a day in small groups of 10pax contained within the kitchen. Tasks include preparing ingredients, cooking, packing of meals and cleaning up!

    Strict safety measures will be implemented throughout the session in adherence to the updated social distances measures. This include:

    • All volunteers are to wear masks throughout the session
    • Mandatory health/travel declarations and temperature screening to be conducted before session
    • Volunteers will work at least 1 meter apart from one another
    • Volunteers are to be kept in small groups (10 pax)
