I am honoured to be part of Martin Curries' Peru X Challenge Team this year. We are a group of 13 colleagues volunteering, biking and hiking our way up Macchu Picchu this September and with that, raising funds on behalf of Martin Currie's Charitable Foundation for a group of selected charities.
The Charity I chose to support is one that not only aims to give Singapore's elderly poor a clean and safe place to call home, but also mobilises the community in providing safe lodging for low-income communities in the region. They have impacted lives of our neighbours in Indonesia, Thailand, China etc and have contributed in the reconstruction of areas struck by natural disasters -
something we in Singapore are fortunate to be protected from.
Do join me in supporting their cause; you can read more about Habitat for Humanity Singapore at http://www.habitat.org.sg and more on Martin Currie's Charitable Foundation at https://www.martincurrie.com/corporate/about-us/corporate-social-responsibility.
A donation of any amount helps their cause (100% of donations go to the charity minus bank and GST charges only), and as an NPO, donations of 10 dollars and above are eligible for tax deduction.
Anchored by the conviction that safe and affordable housing provides a path out of poverty, Habitat for Humanity Singapore has been working alongside families and individuals with limited means to increase access to improve shelter since 2004. Seeking to put God's love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes and communities. As an international nonprofit Christian housing organisation, Habitat for Humanity welcomes people of all races, religions and nationalities to partner in its mission.
