Helping With Heart

To truly help the less advantaged people and communities is to support them with what they truly need. This is what the #OCBCCares Programme is all about.

Employee volunteers under Families100 programme by OCBC will help low-income families with specific support that meets their needs.
The Families100 Programme by OCBC
  • In partnership with the Ministry of Social and Family Development, the Families100 Programme by OCBC is a first-of-its-kind social uplift initiative to provide targeted help to 100 lower-income Singaporean families with children living in rental flats.
  • 200 OCBC volunteers will support these families over a period of 12 months. During this time, they can better understand these families’ situations, and recommend and implement suitable solutions to help them achieve self-reliance, stability and social mobility.

Gatherings and games are the first steps to address social isolation amongst seniors.
The Care Corner ElderConnect supported by OCBC
  • Care Corner ElderConnect supported by OCBC addresses social isolation among seniors from low-income families and aims to reach out to more than 3,500 socially-isolated seniors above 60 years old in Singapore.
  • Over the course of 12 months in 2024, more than 1,000 OCBC volunteers will make monthly house visits to check on the wellbeing of these seniors, and encourage them to step out of their house for activities organised at Active Aging Centers.
The donated necessities and solar panels will go a long way in managing operating costs for Kaizen Children Home.
Greener energy and better financial literacy
  • Volunteers from the OCBC Kajang branch in Malaysia came together and bought RM 24,000 worth of solar panels for the Kaizen Children Home in Kuala Lumpur.
  • This will save up to 100% in electricity bills for the Home.
  • Employees also donated necessities for the Home and taught the children financial literacy.
The children were encouraged, through art, to explore their creativity in dreaming up ways to protect the environment.
The Little Green Summer Camp
  • Little Green Summer Camp is an annual CSR event in China that allows employee volunteers to mentor young participants from less-privileged households in Shanghai.
  • Through interesting games, art workshops and a visit to the ocean park, the children were taught innovative and new ways to help mitigate climate change.
  • These children were encouraged to be the next generation of leaders to protect the environment.
