Even as the Group celebrates its success in doing business, we also believe in giving back to society. In addition to his keen business sense, Mr. Karsono Kwee is also a philanthropist. He espouses values such as nurturing relationships and investing in the community. The group has made significant contributions to various charities since the 1990’s and its corporate citizenship initiatives aim to benefit children.
The beneficiaries include the Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund, The Red Cross Society, Children’s Charity Association, MILK Fund and the President’s Challenge. Other contributions include sponsoring a van for The Red Cross in 2002 and a co-donation with the Rotary Club of a Toyota Hi-Ace Turbo Commuter van to the Tan Tock Seng Patient Care Centre in 2007. The van considerably improved the type of service the Centre can provide in shuttling patients, obtaining needed supplies and other essential activities.
The Group pledges to continue this tradition of corporate social responsibility and to contribute where possible, whether through effort, finance or sponsorship.
