Over 180 needy kids helped

24 children aged 7 to 16, are beneficiaries of Bedok North Moral Family Service Centre.

SINGAPORE - HSBC’s Corporate Responsibility Challenge aims to make an impact on the lives of the underprivileged through the efforts of its staff volunteers.

They work with volunteer welfare organisations to identify needy children.

Over four days last year, more than 750 staff members and corporate customers went around to create a conducive study area in the childrens’ homes, giving them bookshelves and painting their homes.

They helped over 180 needy children.

The children were also each given a $50 voucher for text and assessment books.

In addition, HSBC also helped raise $250,000 for The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund and The Business Times Budding Artists Fund.
