The spreading of SARS had adversely affected each and every one of us in many ways, including most businesses and sole proprietors. Taxi drivers were amongst those worse hit. It was common to hear taxi drivers complain that they barely made enough within a day to buy feed their families.

His compassion for the troubled and needy inspired the Group to launch this charity drive. Staff from all levels rolled up their sleeves and participated actively in this exercise. 2,000 grocery bags worth about $15 each comprising basic daily necessities were packed and distributed to taxi drivers. Items in the pack included 5kg of rice, 1kg of sugar, 1kg of oil, 15 packets of instant noodles, 1 packets of biscuits and a cake.
