Apex Blood Donation
Our team of financial consultants made a voluntary trip to the Health Science Authority (HSA) blood donation centre in April 2014 in a bid to do our part for society. Facing their fears of needles and the sight of blood, but inspired by the thought that one donation could possibly save one adult or 3 babies, it was their virgin experience for many.
After a routine series of forms, questions and tests by the diligent medical professionals at the blood centre, 5 of our APEX heroes successfully completed the donation process! The disappointed rest of the group who were declined based on recent travel history were determined to return to do their part. This short but meaningful half-day ended with a kind lunch courtesy of the blood centre. A sharing of the day’s events back in the office, prompted a second trip organized, with more of us eager to participate.
Volunteer in Cambodia
Making water purification tanks.
“Water for Life” – a clean water project in Kampong Speu, Cambodia, was officially launched in August 2012 by Singapore International Foundation. The objective of Water For Life is to provide over 8,400 Cambodian villagers with convenient access to clean drinking water through the installation of 1,400 bio-sand water filters in rural households over three years.
It is currently estimated that more than 30 percent of Cambodians have no access to clean drinking water sources. The country also has one of the highest infant mortality rates in Asia and most of these premature deaths could be attributed to water-borne diseases like diarrhoea, hepatitis A and typhoid.
An important aspect of Water For Life is the role played by Singapore International Volunteers, who travel to Kampong Speu to build bio-sand filters from raw materials, and install them in the homes of villagers.
