Speaking at the Chinese Development Assistance Council’s annual Student Awards Presentation, Mr Chan reminded Singaporeans that they must remember to give back to society in their endeavor to do well in life.
Relating his own life story of receiving bursaries and scholarships from clan associations which enable him to pursue his studies during his younger days, Mr Chan said:
“As I stand here today, it’s also my duty to give back to society, as much as society has given to me, if not more. I hope that all of you who have benefited from the assistance of the society, from the love of your family and through your own hard work, that one day you too will stand forward and do something for society.”
