MDIS Lends A Hand To The Less Fortunate
MDIS’ Jalan Kayu Heartstrings programme is a key activity in our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) calendar, to which the Institute has contributed S$210,000 since 2010. This year, MDIS contributed S$30,000 worth of groceries and vouchers which was presented to 150 less fortunate families at the 7th annual Jalan Kayu Day event.
Graced by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and Member of Parliament for Ang Mo Kio GRC, Dr Intan Mokhtar, the event attracted 2,500 residents who enjoyed a day of community bonding, fun and games.
PM Lee’s message on Facebook is food for thought. He posted,
“Events like Jalan Kayu Day are a great way to bring residents together. But after the carnivals and games are over, it is the day-to-day ways we look after each other that make a community great. Happy to see a strong community spirit in Jalan Kayu!”
