Equine-Assisted Sanctuary for the Mentally Stressed Launched
Novel Sanctuary using Horses to bring Mental Relief – Founded by Cancer Survivor with Severe Depression, a First in Singapore
The Rainbow Wish Equine-Assisted Empowerment Centre at 100 Horse City #01-02S was dedicated on 27 May 2017, attended by nearly 50 close friends, well-wishers and representatives from the medical and pastoral communities.
Founder, Ms Audrey Fong is a cancer survivor who has herself fought and recovered from severe depression. Not only did Audrey’s chance encounter with a rescued race horse pave the way for relief from her mental torment that coincided with years of post-Chemo cancer treatment, her recovery was capped by a miracle baby in 2016 that she could not have carried in the natural course of medical science.
Today, she is sharing her amazing restorative experience of returning from the brink of suicide with the help of loving, rescued horses, a very apt second lease of life for both injured horses and humans alike, kindred souls in these unique and challenging situations of mental distress that we increasingly encounter in a busy city like Singapore.
Treatment is free for those who can’t afford it, whilst those who can are charged a small fee to recover cost in the charitable operation.
Rainbow Wish is organising an Open House in July/August 2017. Please keep a lookout in its Facebook @RainbowWishSg for announcement of this coming event.
Our programmes are in consultation with Pegasus ECT, the Experiential Counselling Techniques specialists from USA.
