Singapore Toh Clan Association Donating in CNY, Kindness Lasting Long and Far

25th February 2017 (Sunday)

In 1939, a Protem Committee was set up by a group of pioneer clansman to establish an association for the Toh clan community in Singapore. A temporary office was set up at 326 Beach Road. This initiative received an overwhelming response from fellow Toh clansman. Within a few months, the committee was able to obtain the necessary approval from the government. On 10th October 1940, the Singapore Toh Clan Association was formally established and began operations from a rented premise on the second floor of an office building along Beach Road.

On 25th February, 2017 (Sunday), 10th of January in lunar calendar, Singapore Toh Clan Association hosted a Spring Festival gathering gala dinner at Ban Heng Restaurant at Harbourfront Centre. During the event, Singapore Toh Clan Association presented the education bursaries to the outstanding children of the members. Mr. Toh Soon Huat, Advisor (General Affairs) for many years, has won the trust of all the members of the clan. The good deeds by Sian Chay Medical Institution were very much recognized by the Association members as well. The Association Chairman, Mr. Toh Hock Guan, General Secretary Mr. Toh Sin Chuan and other directors also advocated giving back to the society; and Singapore Toh Clan Association made a donation of $5,000 to Sian Chay Medical Institution at that night.

For a long time, Mr. Toh Soon Huat, Chairman of Sian Chay, has always insisted on the five core values of “Forgiveness, Universal Love, Compassion, Gratitude and Blessing”. On the basis of “To support the nation building and foster social harmony”, Mr. Toh actively promotes the beliefs that “Nation Progresses, Family Prospers; Family Harmony, Successful Endeavours”, and that “Forward with the Nation, Bonding with the People” and is deeply involved in the charity causes by actively participating in activities organized by communityorganisations, civic groups and community centres to give back to the society. Mr. Toh Soon Huant himself is practicing what he believes all the time.

Kindness is a belief that needs to be advocated and those organizations being loving and kind such like Singapore Toh Clan Association will be definitely drawn around.
