Making a difference

Keppel Land has been working closely with the North West Community Development Council (CDC) to enrich the lives of residents living in the North West District.

SPREADING FESTIVE CHEER

About 6,600 underprivileged families living in the North West District received festive packs comprising food and basic necessities as part of the WeCare@North West Service Weeks campaign.

Keppel Land came on board as a corporate partner for this initiative in the Gambas division. On 14 January 2017, about 50 Keppel Land volunteers, together with another 50 students and teachers from Republic Polytechnic, rolled up their sleeves to distribute festive packs to low-income families in the neighbourhood.

MONKEY GOES WEST

Separately on 8 December 2016, Keppel Land hosted over 70 beneficiaries from the North West CDC (Gambas) Care & Repair Programme to watch the musical comedy “Monkey Goes West” produced by Wild Rice.

This initiative is part of Keppel Land’s partnership with the North West CDC’s Care & Repair Programme which aims to enrich the lives of Singaporeans living in rental flats in the district.

In August 2016, Keppel Land also organised a visit for over 80 beneficiaries to the Keppel Centre for Art Education at the National Gallery Singapore.
