Tokyo, Singapore, and Hong Kong Offices Take Part in Winter Volunteer Events

February 2023

Three of our Asia offices—Tokyo,  Singapore, and Hong Kong—took part in volunteer events organized by our Community Matters ambassadors over the winter. Our colleagues in Tokyo teamed up on a Sunday to help the Arakawa Clean-aid Forum. Together they collected 14 45-liter bags of waste, one bag of non-combustible waste, four bags of empty PET bottles, eight bags of glass waste, two bags of empty cans and two oversized items—all of which were along the riverbank. Their efforts help restore reed fields and wetlands, which contribute to restoring ecosystems in urban areas.

In Singapore, our colleagues participated in a charity run at the SGX Cares Bull Charge at The Float @ Marina Bay. The SGX Cares Bull Charge helps make a positive impact on their beneficiaries’ lives, namely Autism Association (Singapore), AWWA Limited, Fei Yue Community Services, HCSA Community Services, and Shared Services for Charities. SGX Cares Bull Charge is the only corporate charity initiative that brings together the financial community and SGX0-listed companies to support the needs of underprivileged children and families, persons with disabilities, and the elderly.

Our colleagues in Hong Kong, along with family members, volunteered a Saturday afternoon at HandsOn Hong Kong, where they made nutritious hot soup from rescued ingredients and unsold vegetables collected from wet markets. They later delivered the soup to 23 elderly households in Kwai Tsing District. To round out their day, they also learned about the problems of food waste in Hong Kong and tips for food daily waste reduction.
