Medcorp Ltd donated $500,000 to The Children’s Ark as part of the company’s “giving back to society” as it celebrates its 25th anniversary.
In making the contribution, a Medcorp spokesman congratulated the organisation “for its passionate drive and contribution towards the underprivileged and displaced children in our society today.”
Head of the Children’s Ark Simone de la Bastide said in a media release, “We sincerely thank them for their valued support and for recognising the good work of the Children’s Ark.”
The Children’s Ark has been involved in a number of projects to assist at-risk, challenged and marginalised youth.
The organisation has been involved in human trafficking awareness campaigns and will again partner with the Counter Trafficking Unit on a three-month nationwide child-trafficking awareness campaign, the release said.
It is also currently working on several other projects, one of them being relocating and reconstructing the surgical ward, including the operating theatre, at the Princess Elizabeth Home for challenged children in Woodbrook.
