(Singapore 6 July 2023) Tjeng Yan Hoa, Vice President of Amitofo Care Center International, has received Philanthropy Award from the 4th Her Times Women Empowerment Award. She is one of the five awardees who honored at awarding ceremony which held at the Indonesian Embassy in Singapore.
“Her Times Women Empowerment Award” (WEA) was inaugurated by Her Times, an arm of the Fortune Times Group, with the support of the Indonesian Embassy in Singapore on the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Singapore and Indonesia in 2017. WEA aims to recognize exceptional women who have made significant contributions in the fields of education, business, society, and philanthropy in Singapore, Indonesia, and other ASEAN countries. Besides their remarkable achievements, the winners are also dedicated to improve women’s lives in areas such as education, healthcare, and social development. So far, 33 women have received the honor from the previous three sessions.
Coincide with Indonesia assuming the rotational Chairmanship of ASEAN in 2023, Fortune Times sees this as an opportunity to extend the reach of Women Empowerment beyond Singapore and Indonesia to the rest of ASEAN. The commitment remains to empower women to become valuable contributors to sustainable economic growth, political stability, and the building of harmonious societies.
“I have been able to achieve success not only because of my own efforts. Here, I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to all those who have supported my charitable endeavors. I am thankful to my family and friends, as well as my beloved husband and children, for their support. They have not only been my companions but also a source of energy that has enabled me to successfully fulfill this charitable social mission.”, said Tjeng Yan Hoa.
