The Ministry of Health (MOH) has awarded Sree Narayana Mission (Singapore) [SNM] the contract to manage a second nursing home facility in Yishun for an initial period of 3 years. The new nursing home will be situated along Yishun Ave 6 and has an estimated capacity of over 300 beds. As the health and social services landscape continue to evolve, SNM aims to support the national vision of progressing as one by ensuring that all its institutions and services remain robust and accessible to all Singaporeans – especially the vulnerable.
A monument called ‘Momentary Monument’ was unveiled on 16 February at Block 313 Sembawang Drive as a reminder to Singaporeans of the nation’s development from a “mud-flat, swamp” to a “metropolis”. 2 Those were the words uttered by founding Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew on Sept 12, 1965, in his historic speech “From Mudflats To Metropolis”, close to the marker near Block 312 Sembawang Drive, which used to be the former Sree Narayana Mission (Singapore). 3 Mr MK Bhasi, former President of the Mission in 1965 who hosted Mr Lee Kuan Yew at the Mission during the delivery of his speech, was also present at the launch alongside other members who witnessed the famous ‘Never Fear’ speech.
SNM is one of the 81 benefitting agencies supported by the President’s Challenge 2022 for the Helping Hands Plus Programme with an allocation of $98,800. The SNM Helping Hands Project is a community initiative jointly developed with the Agency for Integrated Care (AIC), with the aim of raising awareness in the community, specifically in the Indian community on mental health and wellness.
This year’s President’s Challenge focuses on ‘Supporting Lower-Income Families’ and aims to empower them with skills and opportunities to help them emerge stronger from the pandemic.
Congratulations to Team SNM for their hard work in achieving this!

About the Awards
The Charity Transparency Award (CTA) and Charity Governance Awards (CGA) recognises charities that have adopted good transparency and governance standards. An initiative of the Charity Council, the awards aim to promote good transparency and governance in the charity sector by acknowledging the excellent work of charities, while inspiring others to emulate their best practices.
First launched in 2015, the Charity Transparency Framework (CTF) aimed to improve transparency and accountability in the charity sector. The CTF with its Charity Disclosure Scorecard acts as a guide to help charities take active steps to improve charity transparency. The scorecard also serves as a self-diagnostic tool for charities to assess themselves against identified good disclosures standards. It is not mandatory.
SNM has won the Charity Transparency Awards in 2018, 2019 and 2022, and remains committed to good governance practices.
