Handiwork is a “Social Enterprise” run 100% by volunteers. The ministry was started by a group of faithful worshippers from ORPC in the mid 1990s to serve the needy elderly in the community at Senior Activity Centres (SACs) in collaboration with Presbyterian Community Services (PCS). The craft work classes are currently conducted at 3 Presbyterian Senior Activity Centres.
The elderly at the SACs handmake items for sale, with all proceeds going to charity. When their handiwork is sold, the elderly volunteers feel a great sense of fulfilment and purpose because the proceeds go towards helping others in need.
Annual Christmas fairs at supporting Presbyterian churches are held to sell the craft. The handiwork craft is also sold online on Lazada.
The ministry has a facebook page.
