A strong network of community-based social and financial support is essential in providing immediate relief to residents and families in need. Through providing economic relief, information, referral and counselling services, we hope to reach out to individuals and families in times of crisis.

Bursaries and Scholarships not only help alleviate financial burdens of needy students, they also motivate them to work hard and achieve their goals. These awards are given out once a year to students who have shown improvement in their studies as a recognition for their hard work and achievements.
Since the Circuit Breaker in April 2020, Filos has expanded our monthly bread distribution into Waves of Blessing (WOB), to include essential items and better help residents with their needs.
Door-to-door distribution to the needy at Kembangan-Chai Chee takes place every first Saturday of the month. This programme also provides the volunteers the opportunity to befriend and engage with residents.
Every year during festive seasons, groceries and festive goodies are given out to needy families. It is a good opportunity for the community to share the festive joy and blessings with those in need.
Filos works with many community partners and provides information and referral to other organisations, linking help and assistance to beneficiaries to help meet their needs.
