“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.
