As part of our ongoing efforts to help the less privileged in society, we donated $25,000 to the North East Development Council for the North East School Meal Fund and the North East Level Up Fund. The funds provide children from low-income families with pocket money for meals in school as well as subsidies of up to 90 per cent for group tuition.
On 7 May 2015, the chairman of our church council, Deacon Matthew Kang, represented the church at an appreciation dinner organised by the North East Community Development Council.
