SAF soldiers spread festive cheer with spring cleaning 'mission' in Kampong Glam

Soldiers from the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) helped put a smile on the faces of residents at Kampong Glam.

Photos uploaded on Sunday (Feb 7) on The Singapore Army's Facebook page shows how  men and women from the 10th Command, Control, Communications, Computers and Intelligence Battalion (10C4I BN) came together to help residents of rented homes with spring cleaning.

According to a caption accompanying the photo, Their mission was to improve the living conditions of these homes, which some elderly are currently staying in. 

Other than cleaning, the soldiers also helped paint some of the homes and even conducted a simple exercise workshop to guide the elderly on how to remain active and healthy.

Said Corporal First Class Kenneth Chan, a participant of the activity:

"Besides building soldier fundamentals and training for field exercises, I [as a soldier] feel that community service is a meaningful and eye-opening experience for us. I now see who I am defending for. And by involving us [soldiers] in community service, we too could do our part to make a difference to our community."

Kudos to all who took part in the successful 'spring cleaning mission'!
