It's that time of the year again where EXCO/Standing Committee members of Singapore Organisation of Seamen (SOS) and Seacare Co-operative Ltd (Seacare) organise their yearly Hari Raya home visit to the residents at Jalan Kukoh estate.

On 8 June, SNCF staff and interns joined members and staff of SOS and Seacare Co-operative in their yearly corporate social responsibility initiative. A total of 41 volunteers gathered for a briefing at Seacare Building at 7pm before spilt up into seven teams to cover a total of 10 blocks, touching the lives of 100 families.

Not only did the recipients are delighted to receive the gifts of love, the volunteers are happy to be able to contribute to a worthy cause.

The event ended about 9.30pm with volunteers soaked with sweats after going up and down the blocks to distribute the gifts. Many have expressed a strong sense of accomplishment and fulfilment for doing good!



Sncf Interns VolunteerSaid SNCF Scholar Goh Yu Xuan: “The CSR activity is a reminder for us to be appreciative of the little things we take for granted in our everyday lives. Such activities and the continual support provided by the RCs help ensure that the less privileged are taken care of, in terms of material and emotional needs. With many of such CSR activities organised throughout the year, Seacare Co-operative really exhibits the co-operative value of doing well and doing good!”

SNCF Intern Jazlee Wee echoed: "It was a rewarding experience doing door-to-door visits and interacting with these families. I am glad to be able to contribute meaningfully to the lives of these people."
