MVPA 2022 Thank You Note

Outstanding Lifetime Volunteer Award

Mr Phillip Tan and Mrs Betty Chen were presented with the highest accolade - the Outstanding Lifetime Volunteer Award, which recognises individuals who have made significant contributions over 30 years or more to better the lives of others.

Mr Phillip Tan

Mr Tan has volunteered with MSF since 1983. In his role as an EXCO member of the National Council of Social Service (NCSS), Mr Tan contributed to the transformation of NCSS and the social service sector. He cultivated community spirit in building a caring and inclusive society through the Care & Share SG50 movement, which saw 240 social service agencies raise a total of $800 million, and rejuvenated the Sharity initiative to nurture our next generation of givers. During the pandemic, he spearheaded the establishment of the ComChest Emergency Fund and mobilised resources for COVID-19 related funds.


Mrs Betty Chen

Mrs Chen has partnered MSF since 1975. Under her leadership, the Chinese Women’s Association (CWA) consistently raised funds and promoted a culture of giving, supporting many charities in their provision of services in the social sector. She also managed the Henderson Senior Citizens’ Home for 32 years and forged best practices in senior care.


Outstanding Volunteer Award

The MSF Outstanding Volunteer Award recognises individuals or groups of volunteers who have contributed significantly to various groups in the community served by MSF. The award winners are distinguished by their significant contributions in terms of time and effort spent.

SAVH Performers
Obsidian by Singapore Association of The Visually Handicapped (SAVH)

A special performance by a group called Obsidian by Singapore Association of The Visually Handicapped (SAVH). Obsidian is a group of talented visually impaired individuals who come together to create music. The group is named after a strongly protective stone, which forms a shield against negativity, and promotes qualities of compassion and strength. Their rendition of “Count on Me” by Bruno Mars conveys the message of comfort found in a friend and being present for those who are important in your life.

Token of Appreciation

MVPA 2022 Token of Appreciation
Token of Appreciation6 Artists from MINDS - Choo Joo Hwee, Nurshafarina Bte Samad, Khairunnisa Bte Md Rashid, Nur Syuhaidah Binte Mohamed Fauzie, Wang Jia Wei

Commissioned by MSF, the token of appreciation was a collaboration between i’mable Collective and Supermama. The artwork was a collaboration between six artists from the Movement for the Intellectually Disabled of Singapore (MINDS). In the centre of the artwork is a family – a boy and his parents – and they are surrounded by a circle of individuals including their close friends, neighbours, as well as members of the wider community.

Time-lapsed Video Artist

Time-lapsed Video Artist Mr Tang Khong Yuen 
Mr Tang Khong Yuen 

Tang Khong Yuen is a portrait drawing artist. While recovering from throat cancer 10 years ago, he took up arts courses in community centres and NAFA, where he found his love for portraiture drawing. In 2018, Mr Tang explored other ways to showcase his work and started busking at Tanjong Pagar Plaza.

Mr Tang has drawn portraits of notable figures such as President Halimah Yacob, Emeritus Senior Minister Mr Goh Chok Tong and MP Denise Phua. Mr Tang hopes to make a mark in the local art scene.
