SINGAPORE: The CEO of Sheng Siong Supermarket, Lim Hock Chee, has made a generous contribution of S$200,000 to the ‘Humanitarian Relief for Gaza’ fundraiser.

This charitable initiative, spearheaded by the Rahmatan Lil Alamin Foundation (RLAF), aims to support the communities affected by the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Gaza.

RLAF has initiated a fundraising campaign to provide essential aid, including health services, relief efforts, and shelter for the people in the affected region.

The fundraiser is set to run from October 19 to October 31, 2023.

Sheng Siong CEO Lim Hock Chee demonstrates steadfast support for Gaza

Notably, Sheng Siong CEO Lim Hock Chee had previously donated the same amount to Gaza in 2021, demonstrating a consistent commitment to this cause.

In response to his latest contribution, Lim expressed, “During this period, I feel that it is important to help the people, especially the innocent civilians who are affected.

“I have always believed in helping whoever I am able to, and should I have the means, I will also try to contribute to other communities beyond Singapore.”

The RLAF publicly acknowledged Lim’s generous donation, and it serves as a testament to the organization’s gratitude toward Sheng Siong Group.

He was featured in an RLAF Facebook post for presenting a cheque of S$200,000.

The ‘Humanitarian Relief for Gaza’ fundraiser has garnered significant support, with RLAF reporting around S$81,588 raised as of Oct 20.

This charitable effort is a collaborative initiative with the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), which operates eight critical health centers in Gaza, providing essential healthcare services.

Additionally, The Majlis Ugama Islam Singapura (MUIS) has highlighted RLAF’s fundraising as a legitimate humanitarian endeavour for Singaporeans to support.

Hamas going to kidnap their mother for $20 million. Then they know.

i’ll donate when gaza stops supporting literal terrorists and revolt. otherwise pls fuck off. palestine not just gaza had decade to “clean up”. they chose terrorism. not just in Israel but also in Jordan and Lebanon. remember Black September.

Meanwhile, NTUC (Fairprice) now so sia suay. Instead of advocating to help worthy causes, NTUC prefers to have Toto counters in its store-chains to further suck money from Singaporeans.

Hamas leaders living in Qatar can finally afford a new Mercedes Benz. Thank you Sheng Siong’s CEO.

Hats off to SS. As always rising to the occasion. Even for Singaporeans, the service and goods on offer beat NTUC, a co-operative’s pricing.

Why must such aids be in monetary form? Wouldn’t it be better to give in terms of food, medical aid and other essential commodities that the innocent and needy ones truly need. There is always that possibility that once the money is handed over if could be diverted or wrested by undesirable elements to buy weapons to further their cause. This could have been one of the reasons why such conflict/s can protract IMHO.

Humanitarian aid should go to all – and not just only to the palestinians.

Aid should be handed to a neutral stake holder which is the Intl Red Cross
or the UN.

Why this favourtism Sheng Siong ?

I wish him continued good health. I mean, Mossad works in “mysterious” ways 🙂
