Established On : 1960
The Children's Charities Association (CCA) began as an unstructured group of charities benefiting children. The charities got together to organize joint fund-raising projects in the 1960s.The success of the first Christmas Fair organized in 1965 at the Victoria Memorial Hall drove home the need for a formal organization.In 1966, the Association was inaugurated through the untiring efforts of the late Mr Francis Thomas who became the founding Chairman. It was subsequently registered by the Registrar of Societies and granted the status of an Institution of Public Character in 1972.
CCA is the coordinating body purposed to organize fund-raising projects for member charities which have the common objective of helping physically, mentally and socially disadvantaged children of Singapore.
The original four member charities are Singapore Children's Society Singapore Association for the Deaf Spastic Children's Association of Singapore Movement for the Intellectually Disabled of Singapore St Andrew's Mission Hospital for Children became the fifth member charity to join CCA in 1971.
The sixth member charity to join CCA in 1977 is Association for Persons with Special Needs (formerly known as Association for Educationally Sub-Normal Children).CCA's efforts are not only directed at alleviating the disablement of children but also at giving them hope for the future.Our member charities are single minded in their efforts to educate, train and assist the children under their care to become independent and useful citizens who can play their role in the nation.
