Huge thank you to all staff who has supported and cheered us on in these 2 events! Your presence means a lot to us!
I would also like to extend my gratitude to Treasa who has been so patient in guiding me along the way. And for the opportunity to learn from such an awesome mentor!

I’m so proud of us as well as all the volunteers involved who have made this journey an indeed memorable one 😄
Thank you for StayHomeWithRSVP Support During CB
StayHomeWithRSVP has been an unprecedented and interesting project to work on!
I would like to give my first thanks to Ms Chang Wan Xin. For tirelessly working without complaints, learning to edit videos in a short timeframe, guiding our colleagues in video editing and supporting the Comms department. Thank you for having my back and being someone I can depend on. Thank you Karyl as well for picking things up very quickly and helping me and Wan Xin in Comms as we were working on this.
Secondly, to the CPFD team Chris, Velda and Hui Qi who have been such a huge help with the cooking and exercise activities – including liaising with and managing our volunteer leads, editing videos, organising and hosting zoom sessions and critiquing videos together.
To the VM and VL teams Treasa, Judy, Shi Shi, Li-Lian, Wan Tian and Li Ting. Thank you for supporting us in this project! For working hard to liaise with and manage the volunteers, organising and hosting the zoom sessions.
Thank you also to Meng, Hong Hong and Marie for your invaluable guidance as we spearhead this entirely virtual project!
And of course to all colleagues for always attending the zoom sessions, liking our Facebook posts during the entire CB period. Your support means the world to me.
Jia you as we enter into Phase 1 of post CB.
Six weeks down, many more to go~~!
Good work Wan Xin!
You did a good job of editing Kendra’s ‘How to use Zoom’ tutorial video! The video flows well and has accompanying text that makes it easy to follow.
Message from Kendra:
The video was well edited.
Can help me to thank the comm team members help me to trim & put in the caption.
The video clip was well done.
I would like to thank you guide me along the way & all the staff make the project successful.
Many thanks 🥰👏👍
It Wouldn’t Be Possible Without ……
1) Tele-befriending Team
Mentor : Jesslyn
2nd Mentor : Treasa
‘Class Monitors’ : Li Ting, Savitha and Samuel
Although initially it wasn’t easy because we were given a short period of time by UPO, but we did it. And it wouldn’t be possible without the help of these colleagues that I have mentioned. The ‘Class Monitors’ were very committed and went the extra mile by googling for ideas to share with the volunteers on ways to keep the beneficiaries engaged. Thank you so much for all the help.
2) Special shout out to Sam for agreeing to help me with AR when I was scrambling with the Tele-befriending project. Merci Monsieur!
3) Yes to you Rashidah. The Hari Raya video was so much fun!!! The many takes we had to do was hilarious. And at the end of the day, the video was well edited and so pro. Syabas sahabat!!!!
Thank you Lilian for interviewing and picking up great feedback from our 4 VL trainers for the Be An Effective Volunteer review. It was a great way to zoom-meet them and start building a relationship at the same time.
A big shout-out to Jess who has been leading our Smart Wellness Project. Thank you for taking it over and keeping it running smoothly.
