Throughout May, Infineum colleagues demonstrated their compassion and generosity by donating $690,000 to a wide range of charities around the world.
Covid-19 has caused extraordinary global disruption, with the charitable sector hit especially hard. Many charities are having to deliver additional services, to the most vulnerable in society, with fewer volunteers and staff members, at a time when traditional fundraising activities are simply not an option. This series of articles highlights how Infineum colleagues support their local communities and make a real difference to the quality of people’s lives.
Together, Infineum Singapore colleagues donated an amazing total of $20,000 towards helping vulnerable members of the community impacted by Covid-19.
Infineum Singapore initiated a six-week campaign to raise funds for The Courage Fund as a channel to enable colleagues to extend a helping hand to those in need.
Lim Tau Chen, Global Engineering Manager, said:
The donation drive was our way of contributing towards a worthy cause and supporting more disadvantaged and challenged people in our society.
Beneficiaries of The Courage Fund include frontline workers, healthcare workers and community volunteers who have contracted the virus during their line of duty, lower income families affected by the virus outbreak, and dependents of individuals who have succumbed to the Covid-19 virus.
While I have the good fortune of having a supportive network of family, friends and our colleagues (the Infineum family), there are many others who do not. Those who were struggling before the pandemic, struggle even more now. Hence this feels like the smallest bit that I can do for my community,
said Project Engineer Leng Ying Jun (pictured right).
I am proud of, and at the same time humbled by, how Infineum Singapore colleagues so readily and generously contributed to The Courage Fund, so as to stand in solidarity with the vulnerable folks in our local community during these unprecedented times – certainly a great example of our CARES values in action,
said John Hong, Manager, Infineum Singapore LLP.
