We take our Corporate Social Responsibility very seriously. Every year, we use a part of our profits to give back to society, in our own small way. Below are some examples of what we have done over the years.
Doctors or Nurses going on Mission Trips to third world countries are welcome to contact us. We may be able to extend our support by loaning or subsidising medical equipment for worthy causes.

2008: We partnered with Dr. Myra Elliott, a leading Maxillofacial surgeon in Singapore, to perform Cleft Palate surgery on 27 children in a small town named Daet in Philippines. Dr. Elliott flew to Philippines at her own expense, while we helped to cover the remaining costs of the surgeries.
2009: We donated a sum of money to Pathlight School, Singapore to support the special needs of a 12-year old Autistic child for a one year period.
