MacPherson CC


Dear SAS members,

Given the level of interest, we have arranged a second SAS contribution to the Porridge Distribution Programme!

The SAS committee invite you¬†to contribute to the People’s Association as a volunteer in its annual Porridge Distribution Programme, which helps people with low incomes or pension. This year we will once again join in and represent the Swiss in Singapore, and¬†a¬†group of¬†volunteers are needed to help with packaging and distribution. After this you are¬†rewarded with tasty porridge!


The People’s Association is a government-near association that focuses on integrating all communities living in Singapore and they have welcomed the Swiss Association as well as many others as partners.¬†This annual food programme not only helps promote the spirit of giving and helping the needy, but also aims to allow new immigrants to assimilate by interacting with Singaporeans and learning the significance of local ethnic and cultural practices.

The food distribution is funded by local communities, associations or organizations, and the People’s Association invite other associations to help out.

Event Date: Saturday 9th June 2018

Start time: tbd, late afternoon/early evening before 7 pm

Duration: 2-3 hours

Price:  free

Meeting point: MacPherson Community Club (Foyer)

Registration is required and will be first come first served. Children are welcome to come help out too.

We look forward to seeing you,
