Rose Charities Singapore's wonderful generosity was experienced by most of the field projects in the donation of 11 used laptops and a desktop. 9 of these were brought to Penang and presented to the field project representatives of Rose Charities Sri Lanka, Cambodia (including one for the Cambodia Physical Therapy Association), Vietnam, Pakistan (who took one extra for Afghanistan)
Rose Charities Singapore, no only 'hit the ground running' when it came into the network last year, but running at 'supersonic speed'. Immediately on formation, emergency supplies (a container) were arranged for Thai flood relief, old peoples homes have (and continue to be) visited, parties arranged at childrens homes, and even local animal care assisted.

Rose Charities Singapore is an amazing group of people of formidable talent, charity and generosity. By the end of the meeting they had made friends of everyone and formulated plans to help several of the field projects. The City State should be very very proud of them indeed...
