Corporate social responsibility is in our DNA

Since the days of our founders, we have believed that one should have compassion for the underprivileged and give back to the community of which one is a part.

In line with our commitment to the communities in regions where we conduct business, we have been helping charitable causes in various parts of the world such as the Tidal Waves Asia Fund in 2004, the Sichuan Earthquake Relief Fund in 2008, the Japan Tohoku Disaster Relief Effort in 2011, and the Philippines Typhoon Haiyan Red Cross Relief Effort in 2013. We have been donating Tiger Balm Ointment to medical missions to Cambodia since 2013. In the United States, Tiger Balm continues to be a sponsor of the Avon Charity Walks that raise funds for breast cancer research, treatment and care.

Supporting people with special needs

In 2010, we celebrated the Year of the Tiger with the “Tiger Balm Record Roar” that raised funds for the Society for the Physically Disabled.

In celebration of Singapore’s 50th Year of Independence in 2015, we remember and salute the resilient spirit of Singapore through our adoption of the Singapore Disability Sports Council (SDSC) as our charity partner. SDSC is the only organisation in Singapore that offers sporting opportunities for persons across all kinds of disabilities. With Haw Par’s sponsorship for Boccia1 sport and the National Disability League, the SDSC athletes were able to ramp up their training for the 8th ASEAN Para Games hosted by Singapore for the first time. Over 70 Haw Par staff turned up in force to cheer the SDSC athletes on with cheer cards at the Games in December 2015.

1Boccia is a target ball sport played by athletes with cerebral palsy and other locomotor disabilities.

Bringing cheer to the less fortunate

To bring cheer to the less fortunate, Underwater World Singapore and Underwater World Pattaya hosted various charities over the years. Children from the Down Syndrome Association (Singapore), Make-a-Wish Foundation (Singapore and Malaysia) and Anti-Human Trafficking and Child Abuse Center (Thailand), as well as patients from hospices and many others have been touched by their memorable visits to our two oceanariums.

In 2015, Underwater World Singapore curated special events to celebrate Singapore’s Golden Jubilee by honouring the Pioneer Generation who built the Singapore we know today. Elderly from The Organisation of Senior Volunteers (RSVP) and the Thye Hua Kwan Seniors Activity Centre were invited to celebrate Singapore’s National Day and Christmas at the Oceanarium.

We will continue our commitment to betterment of lives of people in our community, particularly those in need.
