Executive Director's Message

Dear Members and Friends,


We know that almost all of our members are engaged in some sort of COVID-related CSR. In some cases these are projects that have been quickly mobilized. In others, these are localized and equally critical, in others, donations to groups providing essentials for daily living. We are keen to track what our members are doing for their various communities. Our team has tried to contact in the last two weeks. So far, 40 members have responded and shared their activities. You don’t need to provide detail or state the monetary value of what you are doing. But, when the team follows up, please do share your efforts in general terms.


Thanks to the nearly 100 people who popped in to our virtual Buka Puasa Bersama earlier this evening. The feedback has been great, firstly that we tried to retain a tradition. But also because the content was light and represented a break from stressful routine. I have challenged my team to respond positively to your request for something similar. Take a look at today’s recording. Click and sign in.
