A cheque for $1,157,881, raised during the inaugural OCBC-TODAY Children’s Fund Charity Golf at Sentosa Golf Club on 3 October, has been presented to Mr Koh Choon Hui, Chairman of Singapore Children’s Society.
Already, the OCBC-TODAY Children’s Fund, launched on 3 October last year, has helped close to 1,600 children. The money has gone towards counselling, therapy and character-building programmes, helping children who have been emotionally or physically abused regain their sense of self-worth.
