From today until 27 December, 30 special trees, or ChariTrees, will line the Marina Bay Waterfront Promenade, each carrying a story of social service users who have been enabled and empowered to live a life of dignity. Guest-of-Honour, Mr Melvin Yong, Member of Parliament for Tanjong Pagar GRC, launched the lights on 17 November 2017. The event raised $346,000 through adoption of the trees and donations by corporate partners.
