FUNDRAISING

We had been involved in raising much needed funds for the disabled, destitute, senior citizens, the sick
and the less fortunate people of Singapore.

Our Association has been organising the Miss Singapore International Beauty Pageant since 1975. This is one of our annual events to raise funds in aid of deserving charities or welfare organisations. Some of the funds will also go towards assisting the community projects of SWA.
