Dragon Boat Championship 2019

Congratulations to our partner in Singapore MTM Solutions! Another fantastic Dragon Boat Championship in Singapore for the charity Habitat for Humanity Singapore.  We were proud to be involved.  A great day with teams from the industry competing in their Dragon Boat teams but coming together to support the local community.

Habitat for Humanity Singapore

This charity build decent homes across Asia-Pacific and rehabilitate flats in Singapore for vulnerable families. Habitat Singapore began operations in 2004.  It has been actively engaging volunteers to work in fighting poverty housing in Singapore and across the Asia-Pacific region.

Mr Jun’s story

The elderly Mr Jun lived in his family home in Chiangmai, a wooden stilt house with only 1 bedroom and a leaky roof. The foundation, walls and floor had been badly decayed by termites over the last 30 years. He and his family lived in anxiety with every storm. In May this year, a volunteer team led by Habitat Singapore’s very own Ambassador Carla Dunareanu arrived at the build site to turn Mr Jun’s dreams of a new home into a reality. The team of 12 spent 2 full days hand-mixing cement, tying reinforcement bars and laying bricks to build the walls of the house.

“Thank you all volunteers for helping us (to) build this house for my family. I feel very happy to have a new house which is stronger and safer than my old one. I will always remember you and hope to see you again.”
