In his opening address, Chairman Mr Cyril Chua, said that the organisation has constantly undergone changes and adapted to meet the requirements of the people in need. This is very important because the cases that the organisation handles, have changed with time and are becoming more complexed.
He encouraged the organisation to continue expanding and renewing itself to respond to the community’s growing needs. He wanted the staff to anticipate and look forward, keeping in mind the dedication that all have shown in making AMKFSC Community Services one of the best social service agencies around.
After Mr Chua concluded his speech, Dr S Vasoo, Honorary Advisor to AMKFSC was invited up to give his speech. In his address, Dr Vasoo said that he is happy to see that the organisation is doing all that is needed to help the community.
He stressed that the role of a social service agency is to solve community problems and challenged AMKFSC to get their clients to take ownership of their problems and solve it. He wanted the organisation to help clients become independent and find their self-worth.
During his address, Dr Vasoo also took the opportunity to acknowledge Mr Cyril Chua, Mr Eric Chan and Mr Michael Gray for their unwavering support and dedication to the organisation. He also congratulated Dr Vincent Ng who has been redesignated to Chief Executive Officer.
