You can recognise her by her slim built, modern bob and hearty laughter. Ms Lim Hui Chee, Chief Financial Officer, volunteer and regular donor to the NDCS Tooth Fairy Fund shares why it is important to give.
1. What is a typical workday like for you?
I will settle my two cats (Meowmee & Meimei) before heading to work. My day starts with a cup of G7 Espresso Kopi-o Kosong before starting my string of meetings.
I spend my time communicating with internal and external stakeholders, reviewing financial reports, analysing numbers, and making decisions that balances financial sustainability and quality patient care for the Centre. I also spend time coaching and developing my team's capabilities; I find joy in helping them unleash their full potential. At the end of the day, I will routinely walk to the Finance Office and chat with my staff to see how they are.
2. When work can be stressful at times, what do you do in your free time to de-stress?
I love pole dancing as it is a fun activity that helps me to relax. With a variety of movements, it is also an alternative form of exercise that can train my core muscles and keep me active.
3. How did your passion for philanthropy begin?
I started volunteering during my A levels by giving free tuition to poor children and being a befriender for youths at risk. I am now a voluntary board member at Samaritans of Singapore (SOS), a non-profit organisation and currently donate to the NDCS Tooth Fairy Fund and SOS.
4. What does Giving mean to you and why do you think it is important?
It is my way to contribute back to the society. I feel that it is meaningful to give as every little donation goes towards a bigger pool of funds that can help more beneficiaries in the long run.
5. What inspired you to support NDCS Tooth Fairy Fund as a monthly donor?
My office is situated next to the Development team! I found out about the cause and the number of patients we are helping, and decided to do my part as a staff giver. I hope my actions will inspire my team and build a culture of giving in NDCS.
I encourage every one of us to get onboard and be a regular donor. Even if it is just a small amount, every dollar counts!
