HEB-Ashram commemorates 25 years of reintegrating substance abusers back into community

Set up by Hindu Endowments Boards (HEB) in 1999, HEB-Ashram is a halfway house dedicated to reintegrating substance abusers into the Indian/Hindu community.

 

The halfway house organised a range of activities on 28 January 2024 in commemoration of their 25th anniversary and to build awareness over its activities.

 

Activities included tours of the facility, performances by residents as well as an exhibition by partner groups and agencies.

 

The theme of the event was ‘Empowering Lives, Building Bridges & Restoring Hope’. MP for Sembawang GRC Vikram Nair was the guest-of-honour.

 

Ramesh Selvaraj, HEB board member and management committee member of HEB Ashram, said: “With the support of our incredible community partners, we created a platform for current and past residents and their families to connect, learn, and grow. The booths showcasing various initiatives highlighted the transformative impact we can achieve when we come together.”

 

“It was a day filled with hope, healing, and the promise of a brighter future,” he added. “Together, we are making a difference, one step at a time.”
