Celebrating Our Grands looks to inculcate important family values in our young and encourage them to show appreciation for their grandparents and elders.
Date: 9 Oct 2021
Families for Life gears up for its annual “Celebrating Our Grands” campaign with a slew of activities to encourage families to appreciate and spend time with their grands, including grandparents, grand uncles, and aunts.
This nation-wide celebration hopes to inculcate important family values of ‘Love’, ‘Care & Concern’, ‘Commitment’ and ‘Respect’ in our young and encourage them to show appreciation for their grandparents or elderly extended family members.
