Without my grandmother, I would not be who I am today. Therefore I strongly believe that we have a lot to learn from our elders and that older folks deserve to have a good quality of life. This is why I have committed to raise funds for the Tsao Foundation as I work towards realising my dream of running a marathon on each of the seven continents. Through my own little way, I hope to make a difference for the elderly.


The Tsao Foundation is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for older people by alleviating the hardships of ageing through its community health services; promoting successful ageing; and pioneering new approaches to ageing and eldercare throughout Singapore and the region. It also aims to be a catalyst for constructive change by addressing ageing and eldercare issues at policy level. The Foundation actively pursues its mission by focusing its work on three pillars of eldercare: Service, Education and Collaboration.


Service - Since the beginning of the Foundation, it has adopted a strategy of identifying key eldercare services that are lacking and actively facilitating the development of new services that will meet the needs.

Education - The Foundation set up the Hua Mei Training Centre to spearhead and conduct training programmes that would raise the overall level of geriatric care and care-giving skills for older people.

Collaboration - The Foundation has developed synergistic partnerships with local and regional aged care organisation in order to develop a network of professional carers who are committed to promoting the cause of older people.
