Our Campaign Storyends 28 Jun 2021, 11:59 PM
Through Singapore Red Cross Society, we have launched a Yinson Campaign to deliver assistance and support communities in India, affected or at risk of being affected by the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak.
The funds will be used to purchase urgently needed medical equipment and supplies, such as ventilators, oxygen cylinders and oxygen concentrators. Singapore Red Cross Society will ensure that the supplies we are providing are channeled to the hospitals treating the worst affected communities in India.
We are opening this up to employees who wish to do so, to contribute through a dedicated aid channel via Singapore Red Cross Society. Yinson will match contribution received from employees 100%, thus doubling the value of any such contributions. A similar action is being initiated in other Yinson offices.
This is purely voluntary initiative. All contributions can be anonymous and confidential, but the total amount contributed by 23rd June will be used by Yinson to contribute the matching amount.
Thank you in advance for your support.
(Note: Donations to overseas efforts are not tax-deductible. If you'd like to also make a donation to help our seniors and low-income families in Singapore and receive 250% tax exemption, we invite you to do so here: https://s.giving.sg/vsB2G6y)
Updates as of 12 May 2021: Since the launch of its public appeal on 28 April, the Singapore Red Cross has received over S$3.2 million in donations.
The first tranche of aid, worth about SGD 3.6 million, includes medical equipment such as oxygen concentrators, oxygen cylinders, and ventilators to directly support patients and healthcare workers in hospitals.

SRC is fundraising to deliver assistance and support communities in India, affected or at risk of being affected by the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak.
Medical equipment and supplies, such as ventilators, oxygen cylinders and oxygen concentrators, are urgently needed. In the first instance, we have purchased and will deliver five ventilators to community hospitals in New Delhi through the Indian Red Cross Society. As we raise more funds, we can provide more lifesaving medical resources.
'The needs are immense, and we look forward to working with more organisations to support the relief efforts in India. Our response plan will be adjusted based on ongoing developments, evolving needs and regular assessment of the situation,' said Mr Benjamin William.
