Why Giving is Important?
Donating to charity is a major mood-booster. The knowledge that you’re helping others is hugely empowering and, in turn, can make you feel happier and more fulfilled. Giving to charity also strengthens personal values, builds and strengthens community.
Research has identified a link between donating to charity and increased activity in the area of the brain that registers pleasure – proving that as the old adage goes, it really is far better to give than to receive.
On 14 April 2023, Raffles College student council goes to Sa’adatud-Daarin Orphanage at Kelapa Dua, Kebon Jeruk, West Jakarta to give donations. Followed by inviting a nearby community from the local mosque, DKM Masjid An Nashiriyah Kebon Jeruk to conduct Iftar together at Raffles College multipurpose hall during Ramadhan month.
Thank you to all parents and students who supported and donated to this event. We believe that we have a responsibility to make a positive impact in our community.
