Welfare and Charity by SIA.

Singapore Airlines recognizes the importance of giving charity to the communities it serves. Through corporate donations, sponsorships and other forms of support, Singapore Airlines has helped funded a host of events and charitable causes.

SIA has since the early 1980s helped funded the Community Chest of Singapore.

In 1987, the Airline helped set up Singapore's first kidney dialysis centre, with a donation of S$233,000 to the National Kidney Foundation.
For its 50th anniversary celebrations, the Airline contributed S$4 million to the Movement for the Intellectually Disabled of Singapore (MINDS), to help built an office that provides employment for up to 400 intellectually disabled members.
The Cabin Crew Club for Community Care or 5Cs, founded in May 2001, annually organizes various activities and outings for residents of the Asian Women's Welfare Association (AWWA) Community Home and students of Chao Yang Special School on a regular basis. Volunteers were from the cabin crew and the ground divisions to feed as well as to improve the learning and teaching conditions in two schools in Bohol in the Philippines in June 2005.

SIA is still helping to fund charities locally as well as abroad to the tune of millions of dollars every year.
