14 December 2018

A society is at its best when everyone is encouraged to be involved in the co-creation of value towards meaningful causes. An example is the creation of Project Silver Screen, a nation-wide programme to help senior citizens aged 60 and above, to see, hear and eat better.

The project, with the support of 12 corporate donors contributing S$35 million, aims to improve the seniors' quality of life.
