SINGAPORE: Singapore President Tony Tan Keng Yam on Saturday joined members of the Malay—Muslim community to raise funds for the President’s Challenge.
Over 50 volunteers were at Khalid Mosque located in Joo Chiat selling packets of briyani, with the president pitching in to put the final touches to the dish.
The dish was prepared by Chef Allaudin Mohamed, who is also chairman of the mosque.
Each packet costs S$10 and will go to the President’s Challenge Fund for various charities.
Organisers said sales were so good that orders for the dish were placed even before the charity coupons were printed.
The event also involved Singaporeans from other ethnic groups.
