The Singapore Red Cross - RHT Rajan Menon Foundation Charity Golf 2016 held on 4 October 2016 at Orchid Country Club raised close to S$170,000 in support of the Singapore Red Cross (SRC) local humanitarian services. Dr Amy Khor was the Guest-of-Honour and the event was attended by more than 100 clients and industry leaders.
Prior to the event, the team from RHT Rajan Menon Foundation (RHT RMF) volunteered our time at the Red Cross Home for the Disabled where we had meaningful interactions with the residents. The Home is one out of four Homes in Singapore catering to the severely disabled.
Funds raised will go towards SRC’s local initiatives listed below:
• Red Cross Home for the Disabled
• Community-Led Action for Resilience (C.L.A.R.E.)
SRC and RHT RMF are grateful for the support from our donors and sponsors.
