Since its inception, RenovAID has helped more than 20 families give their jaded apartments some much needed face-lifts. These families come from the lower income bracket; each facing its own hardships and challenges. Their barely habitable apartments only added to their dire living conditions. The series pulled together a group of volunteers – from designers to packers and movers, as well as sponsors of furniture and electrical appliances – to renovate these apartments with a tight budget of $5,000 each. With a rejuvenated and cleaned up living environment, we hope these families can embark on a fresh start in their lives.

We are now calling for volunteers to help the families featured in the show.

Join us now with your family and friends, and let’s build a more inclusive Singapore together.
