About Caring Cards

As a small non-profit organisation that is big on holistic health, we recognise the impact social connection (or the lack thereof) can have on one’s mental wellbeing. This is even more pertinent in today’s post-pandemic world.

That’s why we created Caring Cards. We want to start conversations with a disadvantaged community we care about, who often has few words, but many thoughts; whose mental health has been strained in the past two years. They are the silent heroes in our midst – our migrant worker community in Singapore.

Who are Caring Cards meant for?

While we designed Caring Cards with our migrant brothers in mind, you are more than welcome to use them in your conversations with others regarding mental health and wellbeing.
