Thank you ISCOS for giving me the opportunity to contribute towards your cause! My participation continues to resonate with my belief that everyone should be given a second chance. Sharing a quote from our beloved Singapore President, Mr S R Nathan, “Although they have made a mistake in life, they deserve a second chance. We all make mistakes; we all come out the better for it.”
I have gotten in touch again with Mr Teo Tze Fang, who is currently the CEO of the Singapore Corporation of Rehabilitative Enterprises (SCORE). The mission of SCORE is, “Building Bridges, Changing Lives”. Tze Fang was previously from the Prison Services. It was Tze Fang’s one email that opened the door for me to enter ISCOS, so that I can contribute in more meaning ways.
Sitting beside me was Samuel, one of the key peer mentors of ISCOS. Samuel is current serving in the HighPoint Community Services Association. Their mission is “To help rebuild broken lives of people in need, especially ex-offenders and their families.”
During this session, I have also gotten the opportunity to get to know Sin Sin, the boss of Secret Recipe! Gosh how I love their yummy dessert! I am glad that she is also a supporter of ISCOS’ social cause. She has another social enterprise that is on-going and growing and they are serving 10 different types of different laksas at Laksania! I can’t wait to taste more of her delicious food. Do give her your support!
I am also glad to be able to speak with Mr Andy Lim, ISCOS Chairman, up close and personal. I also got to know that his company is handling fund management.
Volunteering gives the type of satisfaction and happiness cannot buy. Do consider joining me in this journey. I was thinking of doing this after I retire. I am glad I did not wait till then. So what are you waiting for? Join me now in this fulfilling journey.
