Important Notice on Swine Flu Prevention Measure

Dear volunteers,

due to the heightened prevention measure taken against a possible swine flu outbreak, All Saints Home Tampines will be closed to all visitors until further notice. We will update this blog site again when the measure is lifted or relaxed to allow the continuation of volunteer services on Saturdays. At the same time, I hope that everyone can remain healthy during this period of time.
