    In conjunction with KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital’s (KKH) SG50 programmes, Keppel Care Foundation has donated $50,000 to the KKH Health Endowment Fund for underprivileged children under its care.

    At KKH’s children’s carnival held on 13 June 2015, Mr Robert Chong, CEO of Keppel Care Foundation and Director, Group Human Resources, Keppel Corporation, presented the donation cheque to Professor Kenneth Kwek, CEO of KKH, in the presence of Ms Grace Fu, Minister, Prime Minister’s Office, Second Minister for the Environment and Water Resources and Second Minister for Foreign Affairs.

    At the carnival, 80 Keppel volunteers set up games stalls and posters showing facts and figures about Singapore to educate and entertain over 200 children and their families. Ex-national Singapore footballer Aleksandar Duric also held a football session for the children at the event.

    Mr Chong shared, “We are delighted that Keppel Care Foundation’s support of KKH programmes, including this children’s carnival, allows KKH and Keppel Volunteers to collaborate on outreach activities that benefit underprivileged children and their families. It was meaningful that our volunteers were able to engage the children on interesting facts and figures about Singapore in celebration of our nation’s jubilee year.

    “Building on ongoing initiatives by Keppel Volunteers with KKH, we will strengthen the partnership through developing sustainable programmes that will benefit more children in need.”
