Dear all,
Kampung Senang Charity & Education Foundation is a charitable organisation that was established in December 1999, and is located within a 7000 square feet premises on the ground floor of Block 840, Tampines Street 82. As the name suggests, “Kampung” is a community, “Senang” is a sense of wellness, harmony and peace.

I happen to know the charismatic chairperson, who was featured on Channel 8 on several occasions, as the former General Mgr of HSBC turned full time charity organizer. on 24 April, they will be having an event with details as per below:

Date: 24 April 05
Time: 1.30pm to 5.30pm
Event: Holisic Support Monthly Gathering (HSPC [Holisic Support for Patient
affected by Cancer] members)
Address: Blk 840, Tampines St82, #01-111
Tel: 67852568

Program of the day include
1.30pm Song Singing
2.15pm Sharing Session
3.30pm Releasing
4.00pm Food Demo & food tasting
5.00pm Round up Singing

They welcome photographers who would volunteer to take some pictures covering this event, which they may also use for their annual report of activities.

I understand that located within their compound includes an organic farm where they do distribute the produce to some cancer patients in the hope that increasing the intake of organic food will help in their recovery.
(you can find out more at their website: www.kg-senang.org.sg)

Therefore I see it is an opportunity for photographers who are interested in taking plants, people in activities, portraits of people, as well as general shots of the premises. (close ups, macro, portraits, landscape etc..)
It is a good deed to be able to contribute your photography skills in a charitable way.

Though the event may take up to 3.5 hours or more,
I understand some can be available for less than the duration. Therefore i propose to assemble a group of 6~9 volunteers where at least 2 or 3 members can be there at any one time.

Those interested, please also email me at
myster5@gmail.com
with your contact numbers, and the timing you are available for.
ie. (A)1.15-3.15pm, (B)2.15-4.15pm, (C)3.15-5.15pm... etc.

The nearest MRT is Tampines Station. I understand bus 291, 293 from the interchange will take you there, alighting at nearby ave 3.
(those who stay nearby, please confirm this or assist with a better way to get there.)

Additionally, you may take bus no. 22 (or bus 293) from Tampines Interchange and alight at bus stop on Tampines Avenue 4, opposite St Hida School and before the Shell petrol station. From the bus stop, cross the road and walk on a tiled pavement running along the St Hidla school fence until you reach Tampines Street 82. Kampong Senang event location is at the end of the tiled pavement.

Dear volunteers,
Ideally the photos taken should be provided in CD-Rom at good Jpeg resolution, though prints are fine if you are willing to give the negative also. The images we provide would be available at no costs to them for selection for use in their publications, not limited to their reports of activities (maybe even web, when they have the resource to upgrade).
This is a voluntary service and i think is a good opportunity for CSers who wish to sharpen their phototaking skills at events while at the same time doing a community service. Amongst those who have volunteered and are already pros, please feel free to guide the learners. I assume all are D/F SLR users or EVF-type users. This is the first time i organize an outing, so please bear with me if i miss out certain things.
Cheers!

just checked with one of their administrator, they will host about 30-50 cancer patients for the activities on that day (excluding the volunteer workers).
i think we could deliver the CD-roms in about 2 weeks time (8th May)?.. however some of us may be busy and need more time, in which case i would propose to collect the remaining/last of our works/CD-roms on 15th May?
what do the rest think about this? enuf time? if okie, then i'll meet you kind souls on 8th and 15th May somewhere in town (lets determine when we meet first on 24th Apr).

not to discriminate, but we have to make it convenient for them to use also. those who are shooting films, please prepare to scan your pics in reasonable jpeg resolution (not more than 3Mb each pic? use your own judegement la..) and provide in CD-roms. thanks!
