Andrew Ho: Caring For One Another During Festive Season
Mr. Andrew Ho, Senior Manager, Numbers Forecast Operations said that everyone can play a part in helping the needy, that whilst companies can help with the financial support and contributions in kind, individuals can also do their bit by offering their skills and sharing some quality time with the less fortunate. A simple gesture such as today where everyone come together with the less fortunate in an atmosphere of celebration and joy, shows the importance of sharing and caring for one another.
