CFC Singapore Joins ANCOP Global Walk
Tuesday, February 13, 2018
On the morning of May 25th 2014, almost a hundred CFC Singapore members along with their families and friends joined the rest of the world in the annual ANCOP Global Walk. With the goal of supporting over 50 marginalised children in the Philippines in its Child Sponsorship Program (CSP), this 2.5km walk stretched from the Marang Trail in Harbourfront to the Henderson Waves in Henderson Road. What seemed to be an uneventful walk was made to be quite exciting as the organisers grouped the participants and asked them to complete a series of tasks in each so called “pit stop” Amazing Race-style:
A – Take a group selfie and send to the ANCOP team
N – Do the unity step after completing the Marang Trail
C – Comedy stop to prepare something fun (e.g. knock knock jokes, pick-up lines)
O – Do the group wave at Henderson Waves
P – Do the flash mob with the Creatives group
The morning concluded with a group photo with the participants.
Indeed, spending the Sunday morning with the rest of the community has never been this fun and fulfilling knowing that each step aids in the education of underprivileged children.

Leprosy or Hansen's disease (HD) is curable and declared eliminated as a public health concern. However, patients and even those who have long recovered continue to be regarded as “unclean” and faced discrimination by the society and even by their own families.
