I Wish You Enough

Since 2017, South Central Community Family Service Centre together with the community members, has organised an co-created an annual “I Wish You Enough” (IWUE) event to celebrate the diversity and togetherness that is inherent in communities.

IWUE is a social movement that encourages collaborative action of communities in support of the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty observed every year on 17 October. The social movement brings to light the issues of poverty but also celebrates the resilience and gifts of individuals, families and the community.

SCC stands together with many partners in Singapore in support of International Day for the Eradication of Poverty (IDEP), representing a wide community concerned about poverty. Whether it is creating awareness about poverty in our very own city-state, or sharing with our neighbours so that everyone has enough, we all can play a part.
