A team of 28 from our Singapore office visited the Willing Hearts Kitchen in August for a volunteer day of cooking and packing meals for delivery to the less fortunate in the local community. Their generous efforts were featured in an article in the Straits Times. Read more at Food for 5,000.
The SITA Sydney office once again held a bake-off event to celebrate International Women's Day in March and raise funds for Safe Steps, a family violence response centre. Staff were invited to enter the baking competition or alternatively pay a $5 entry fee to sample and judge the treats. The team raised 1,000 AUD and ate some very yummy cakes.
SITA's Hong Kong office recently participated in the World Vision “Skip-A-Meal” event to raise awareness of global hunger. Skip-A-Meal is based on the idea that millions of children suffering from hunger today could be free from the threat of severe malnutrition if their arms measure 2 cm or more in circumference. Participants skip a meal to personally experience hunger and raise funds for World vision's food security programs. Our whole Hong Kong office took part in the event and raised HKD 4,650 (US$600) for World Vision Hong Kong.
