Over 4,000 donors, volunteers, social service users and their families joined us at Community Chest Charity in the Park 2018 to empower lives through inclusiveness. Held at Universal Studios Singapore in Resorts World Sentosa, it was a celebration of strengths and a showcase of inclusiveness. Mixed teams comprising of persons with and without disabilities also took part in inclusive games and experiential activities to allow them to have a better understanding of the challenges faced by our service users. Through these activities and interaction, we hope to encourage the inclusion of persons with disabilities in society. Coupled with organisations providing holistic support for persons with disabilities at the workplace, every person can be empowered to live a life with dignity in a caring and inclusive society.
Graced by Guest-of-Honour Mr Chan Chun Sing, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Office, invited guests of Charity in the Park 2018 included Community Chest service users ranging from low income families, children with special needs and seniors, in addition to corporate donors and their families.
The event is in line with the 5-year social service roadmap launched last year, and also held in support of SG Cares, a national movement to promote volunteerism. The event also raised about $2.3 million for about 80 social service organisations supported by Community Chest.
On behalf of our co-organiser, Resorts World Sentosa, we thank you for joining us to empower lives with care!
