Lighting Hearts Lighting Homes as a ground initiative, hopes in its own small way to be able to spread cheer, love and respite from the daily humdrum and difficulties by visiting the underprivileged amongst us in the community during annual festivities.
- To create opportunities for people from all walks of lives to be able to give back to the community
- To bring festive joy to beneficiaries
- To ensure every single cent donated goes towards helping the beneficiaries
- To further support individual beneficiaries in need of more assistance
- To raise awareness and in the short run facilitate in improving the beneficiary’s life
A Greater Impact Every Year
2021 is LHLH’s 9th year, since its humble inception in 2013. This ground up movement has slowly grown to reach out to more underprivileged individuals and families. All of this wouldn’t have been possible without love, belief and kind assistance from our family, friends, volunteers, supporters and well-wishers from the community. To us, this is a true testament of how every ONE of us could make a difference in our own way and shares the joys of giving to a total stranger, and reinforces the positive affirmation that to give is indeed to receive.
This year, we are in the midst of a global pandemic, which has resulted in tremendous social challenges. The struggles of vulnerable families like our beneficiaries have been further exacerbated by the pandemic. In these turbulent times, more than ever, your donations and support for this year’s outreach is crucial.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank Sree Narayana Mission, whom we have partnered with for the past 3 years (2018 – 2020). The partnership had enabled us to touch the lives of more beneficiaries. Moving forward, LHLH will be operating independently as we had in our earlier years. Nevertheless, we will strive to reach out more beneficiaries to spread festive joy.

Outreach. We will be reaching out to selected beneficiaries and they will be gifted with $100-$120 festive angbao per family (depending on how much we are able to raise), alongside a set of 2 goodies – homemade biscuits and Murukkus.
