Why does the Centre need
In order to provide its services to
the community, the Centre receives welcome financial assistance and help
in kind from its sponsors. However,
we always need additional funds which have to be raised from various
fundraising activities as well as from private donations and gifts.
If you can manage a contribution, however small, towards our
activities, you can be sure that it will be used in a cost effective way
towards providing valued services for local people.
