WHO WE ARE
At Adullam Life Counselling, we are a non-profit society that provides support and practical help for people facing debt issues. We are a Christian based organisation but pledges to serve the community without any racial or religious bias. Give us a call to find out how we can help.
As a social concern, to see people being set free from the debts that strangle their lives.
Taken from Proverbs 24:11-12
Rescue those who are unjustly sentenced to die; save them as they stagger to their death. Don’t excuse yourself by saying, “Look, we didn’t know.” For God understands all hearts, and he sees you. He who guards your soul knows you knew. He will repay all people as their actions deserve.
Our aim is to help individuals overcome their debt problem with family and community support, and seek to reduce their financial stress.
WHAT WE DO
Regular counselling for both the individual and their loved ones will help to relieve anxieties and aid in recovery. During the sessions, help-seekers are encouraged to share their experiences so that there can be mutual support and they will realise they are not alone in facing the problem. Members who are in the midst of recovery will also be tasked to mentor or encourage newcomers to ensure their recovery.
Established in April 2013, Adullam Life Counselling is a registered society that provides counselling, practical support for the individual, and also for the affected family during their financial crisis.
The centre is currently headed by Mr Wong Kee Soon who has been helping people with debt issues for the past 30 years. The centre acts as an intermediary between the help-seekers and their legal creditors by negotiating on a possible repayment plan. We also provide advice and crucial support to those who are troubled by illegal money-lenders (loan-sharks).
On average, we have helped approximately 500-700 cases per year with a success rate of 80 to 90% of our help-seekers paying-off their moneylender over a period of time after seeking help with us. We also have a growing team of volunteers who are passionate about helping members of the public to overcome the vicious cycle of excessive borrowing.
We are a registered Social Service Agency with the National Council of Social Service. Agencies such as the Moneylender Association of Singapore (MLAS), Insolvency and Public Trustee’s Office (IPTO), various Grassroots Committee and moneylenders themselves are also working with us, referring people to Adullam Life Counselling.
