Our Endeavours to Disadvantaged Groups
We seek to improve the lives of the disadvantaged and vulnerable in Singapore through a meaningful and holistic approach which includes grants, volunteer work and outreach programmes.
Some of the beneficiaries we have supported include Children’s Cancer Foundation, Red Cross Home for the Disabled, Singapore Red Cross, The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund and TOUCH Young Arrows.
Through our annual charity golf events, we have also raised funds in support of partners under our Ageing RigHT project e.g. Alzheimer’s Disease Association and Singapore Road Safety Council.
In September 2019, the Foundation was conferred the prestigious Friend of Singapore Red Cross Award in recognition of its contributions towards Singapore Red Cross.
