A delighted Mr Tan Chee Chye, Chairman of the MSF, said: “This much-needed donation has enhanced our funds, and we are very grateful to the Chen Su Lan Trust.”

In a letter to Madam Chen Chi Chin, Chairman of the Chen Su Lan Trust, Mr Tan said: “The MSF is indebted to you and the Board of the CSL Trust for this timely and strong support.”

The donation, he added, would “enable us to provide grants to our 14 Methodist schools in Singapore”.
