Volunteering with Lakeside Family Services

June 2016 │ Singapore

In May and June, Deutsche Bank Singapore volunteers spent time with Lakeside Family Services, helping with their Families-in-Transition (FiT) programme, which provides temporary housing and other holistic services for displaced families due to financial and other personal crises.

In late May, five volunteers spent the morning creating an inspiring and hopeful message on a wall mural for families in the Lakeside Family Services’ FiT office. The colourful mural will help create a positive environment for the therapeutic work and programmes that the families undergo at the centre.



Then in mid June, another 10 volunteers played a friendly soccer match with the children and youth in the soccer club under the FiT programme. The club engages the children and youth to teach them soccer skills and team values such as perseverance, discipline and teamwork.



One of the volunteers said, “It was great timing to meet the children from the Lakeside Family Service for soccer at the start of Euro 2016. Playing soccer with them and having a chat is a natural and fun way of encouraging these children.”
