Woh Hup encourages our employees to participate actively in charity work locally and overseas. Over the past 9 years, 1,500 staff have volunteered in various charity work and contributed more than 17,000 volunteering hours. Staff are recognized for their effort in dedicating their time to do good, through the Annual Volunteers Appreciation Luncheon, an initiative launched in 2018.

Woh Hup was conferred as one of the Champions of Good in 2018 and 2020. Champions of Good is part of the National Volunteer & Philanthropy Centre’s Company of Good programme that exists to inspire and activate companies to do good. The purpose of recognising organisations as Champions of Good is to acknowledge and validate companies for the good work they do in corporate giving and facilitating opportunities for them to grow and influence giving in Singapore. We are honoured to receive the awards as this is a testament, especially for our staff who have selflessly contributed their time to serve the community.

Charity Luncheon for the Aged

We host biannual charity luncheons for the elderlies in June and December every year since 2012, where elderlies would be entertained by different kinds of performances that we have arranged including performances by our own staff volunteers. As of 2020, we have hosted 16 luncheons and our volunteers have served 6,000 elderlies from 41 senior care facilities and centres.

Giving Activities

In 2018, we introduced our own volunteering programme where we work with 2 to 4 charities every year on a 10-month volunteering programme to provide a more meaningful giving journey for our staff and the beneficaries. We have worked with Alzehimer’s Disease Association, MINDS and SPD on befriending programme; Singapore Children’s Society on craft work and tuition; TOUCH Community Services on home cleaning. In addition, 3 sessions of litter picking were organized for our staff to participate with their family and friends. Beyond these, we are also supportive of community events organised by charities such as NKF health screening sessions where our staff helped out the event as usher and registration assistant. We will continue to organize volunteering work for our staff to stay engaged with the less-privileged community.

Overseas Community Involvement Programme

Besides being actively involved in local volunteering work, we have worked with local charity organizations to organize Overseas Community Involvement Programme (OCIP). We partnered with The Chain Reaction Project to build 30 homes in a village in Manila when our staff volunteers visited over three years consecutively between 2012 and 2014. We also went on to build a community centre in Chiang Mai in 2016. In 2018, we partnered with Mercy Relief to build water supply system for 1 village and 2 schools in Hmawbi Township, Yangon.

With contribution of a significant sum to carry out the projects, we also involved some of our staff from Singapore office to participate in the building works on voluntary basis, but expenses were fully borne by the company. These OCIP trips have benefited our staff in many ways - they learned and bonded more with one another and they worked hard together to help others. Many of those who have participated in the projects commended that they are fulfilling, and they look forward to more of such trips.

Charity Sports

On top of philanthropy and volunteering work opportunities, Woh Hup actively sponsors employees and their family and friends in various charity runs and walks to support the organizing charities, and as part of the company’s initiative to promote a healthy lifestyle. We support charity sporting events including Charity Futsal Tournament by Boys’ Town, Down Syndrome Day and Walkathon by Down Syndrome Association (Singapore), Race Against Cancer by Singapore Cancer Society’s and Walk for Our Children by Singapore Children’s Society.
