CapitaLand partners community development councils to help children
Property developer CapitaLand and the five community development councils aim to help 5,000 underprivileged children this year, as part of their outreach effort.
This is the second year of their collaboration.
Last year, some 700-thousand dollars was raised and distributed to the five CDCs.
The money was raised through CapitaLand's Green for Hope programme.
Through the annual recycling initiative, CapitaLand Hope Foundation will donate two dollars for every kilogramme of recyclable waste collected from its participating properties.
The money is used to help children through localised programmes at each CDC, as well as CapitaLand's My Schoolbag programme, where school supplies and daily necessities are provided.
Chairperson of the mayors' committee and mayor of South West District Dr Amy Khor said she has received good feedback from last year's beneficiaries.
She added that the collaboration between CapitaLand and the CDCs has helped to raise the social mobility of the underprivileged.
