As Keppel Land’s Senior Accounts Assistant, Ms Liow Ai Wen is a whiz at devising complex mathematical formulae and crunching long numbers. But when she is away from the office, she has only one simple, uncomplicated wish: To help the less fortunate.
As a long-time volunteer with an international humanitarian aid organisation, Ai Wen is passionate about the charity work that she does after office-hours. After joining Keppel Land in 2012, she has found a new platform to do even more good – by participating in some of the company’s outreach activities in communities where the company operates.
Keppellandlive sat down with Ai Wen to find out more about her community service spirit, and what drives her passion in volunteering.
Hi Ai Wen, thank you for taking the time to talk to us more about your community outreach activities. To start, can you share with us some of the Keppel Land CSR activities that you have taken part over the past few years?
Ai Wen: I am grateful to have had the opportunity to participate in a myriad of activities which offered different aspects of volunteer engagement supporting community causes, such as the 2014 “Run for Life” charity run, where our company contributed a total of $10,000 towards educational programmes to help disadvantaged children and youth.
