Singapore Women’s Association (SWA) runs a big charity fund-raiser on an annual basis. It is the only time we garner all our voluntary resources to raise funds to support our programs and community outreach.
The net proceeds are used throughout the year for our Vision Care program, old folks home projects, community hospitals projects and our selected beneficiaries. We are listed as an IPC charity organization allowing individuals and corporates to receive tax relieves for donations.
The charity dinner is also the finale for the Miss Singapore Pageant. The young ladies are transformed from months of gruelling training and charity work. We unveil them at this purposeful and meaningful event.
Do join us on this journey by attending our fundraising charity dinner or being a corporate sponsor. Every bit counts as we give back to society what we have gained from it.
It is real pleasure to be here, to see the good work that the Singapore Women’s Association (SWA) has done, and to celebrate its long and storied track record.
The SWA serves some of the most vulnerable in the community - children, the elderly and the underpriv-ileged. It is an important conduit providing assistance to those of us who need it, and at the same time giving opportunities for women to contribute to the betterment of our society.
This has been its mission since it started in 1954, at a time when social problems were rife and the needs were immense. Today, in Singapore, after decades of economic development, the problems are less ob-vious but for those impacted, as great as ever.
Even as many children, young persons and the elderly have found their feet in the world, and have been able to take advantage of the rising tide of prosperity in Singapore, there remain those who require our help.
SWA has been playing this role since 1954, and its defining identity has been a sensitive and ground up approach to tackling specific problems - including providing eye care for the elderly with glaucoma un-der its “vision care” programs; in “Project Rebuild”, it assist women and children who have been victims of domestic violence; and then there is its long time mission of grooming young women to serve in the community.
Today the SWA is 46 years old, and its members have served the community, and the association with distinction, for many years. Renewal is in the air and will inject new ideas and projects into the associa-tion. However, what remains uncharged will be SWA’s unwavering attention to those among us who are vulnerable, marginalised and who need a warm and supportive hand.
I wish the association the very best in its 46th year and its mission for making Singapore a better place for us all as it too plays its part in refreshing and strengthening the social compact in Singapore.
Happy 46th anniversary!
