Our work supports the unserved and underserved in our community by identifying underlying issues and providing targeted help.

We provide targeted help to the vulnerable in society.

Launched in 2017, the #OCBCCares Programme runs in OCBC’s key markets of Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and Greater China.

We support vulnerable seniors, people with special needs and low-income families, youth and children.


Giving back is embedded in our corporate DNA. 

OCBC volunteers contribute their data analytics, money management, fraud surveillance, and digital or personal development skills – to give those in need what they truly need.


Since 2017, we have supported 857,292 vulnerable individuals, on track towards our target of helping 1 million individuals by 2023.
