Home Sweep Home

Jul 08, 2017

Home Sweep Home is a large-scale advocacy and impact programme by Habitat for Humanity Singapore. The inaugural event aimed to rally together volunteers to provide a decent home and environment to the vulnerable segments in our society.
In just one morning (8 July), over 1,000 participants rallied together to improve the living conditions of our vulnerable elderly and revitalise shared living spaces for thousands of residents.

This massive clean-up encompassed the cleaning of 120 homes and 378kg of litter picked up across three neighbourhoods in Chai Chee, Toa Payoh and Redhill.
With the tagline “One Nation Together, Love in Action”,

Home Sweep Home kickstarts the month-long countdown to National Day with volunteers coming together for one meaningful morning of service to create a cleaner, healthier Singapore - starting with the home.
