Due to his past, Kumar was disowned by his family but has since reconciled with his sister who in turn is helping him to be reconciled with his mother. Kumar also applied for a 2 room BTO flat in 2016 and will get his flat in 2019. To keep fit, he actively takes part in marathons and cycling events. He is thankful to be working in THH so that he can help others like him come out of their life of crime and drugs and become contributing members of society once again.
Everyone makes mistakes, but ultimately the most important lesson is learning from it. Although these ex-offenders have learnt and changed for the better, many of them are still stigmatised, causing them to lose self-esteem. Public acceptance is equally important to lead them back to society.
This year President's Challenge is supporting 6 non-profit organisations including The Helping Hand who run programmes for ex-offenders to re-integrate back into the community. Let's garner the community spirit and help them today! Support by donating to President's Challenge today.

About the Charity
The President's Challenge is an annual community outreach and fundraising campaign for beneficiaries selected every year by the President's Office. It is a call to all Singaporeans in doing their part in building a more caring and inclusive society. Initiated in 2000 by former President S R Nathan, the Challenge represents the coming together of people from all walks of life, to help the less fortunate. In 2012, under the leadership of former President Tony Tan Keng Yam, the Challenge was expanded to go beyond fundraising by including volunteerism and social entrepreneurship. In 2018, President Halimah Yacob announced a $10 million fund (Empowering For Life Fund) which will empower vulnerable groups through skills upgrading, capacity-building and employment.
