ABOUT 介绍

The idea of establishing a Mandarin-speaking Chapter was mooted years ago. It was only in the early 1980 that the City Chapter Board of Directors assigned the then Vice President Ee Kok Wah the task of initiating the ground work. With the support of the National President, JCI Sen. Chow Kwok Wah, Past National President JCI Sen. Patt Man Wah and City JC David Tay Hang Chiang the first Pre-Membership Orientation Programme was organised in April 1980 at the Holiday Inn Hotel.

The response was fairly good and 15 non-Jaycees attended this PMO. Sufficient publicity was accorded by the Chinese Press.

During the 1980 JCI Singapore Conference, a tea reception was held in May at the Hilton hotel to welcome and get to know the Taiwan delegates. Another PMO was held in early 1980 in Jaycees Secretariat at Midland House where 25 non-Jaycees attended. Thereafter a Pre-Induction Training(PIT) Course was organised to orientate the baby Jaycees who have joined the organisation. A pro-team committee under the chairmanship of JC Ee Kok Wah was formed to organise the inauguration and establishment of the Mandarin Chapter.

9th September 1980 was the inauguration date. The Inauguration Ceremony was held at the Singapore Chinese Chamber of Commerce & Industry Auditorium amidst lion dance and National Theatre Chinese Orchestra performances. Ten new members were inducted.

The official affiliation was accorded to the Chapter at the EOGM on 4th October 1980 and on 11th October 1980 the Charter Board of Directors was elected.

Promotion of Chinese Language, Health, Arts & Culture

As the only chapter focused on promoting the Chinese language, JCI Mandarin Singapore conducted meetings in Chinese and organized events that promote Chinese arts and culture, including Teochew Opera and entrepreneurship workshops at Rediffusion.

JCI Mandarin Singapore also actively promotes health by engaging disadvantaged individuals who are mentally disabled, physically disabled, visually impaired, stroke victims, or those suffering from rare illnesses in meaningful fundraising activities, providing platforms for these individuals to perform on stage while at the same time, providing them with a new TCM clinic to seek quality healthcare treatments.

JCI Mandarin promotes arts and culture actively. In 2015, two concerts have been organized with the support of arts charity Musical Theatre Limited, one is a mini-concert Tribute For Iskandar, while the other is the Inaugural Healing Arts Charity Gala Concert 2015 held in Resorts World Sentosa with the purpose of raising funds for healthcare patients. Both these concerts were extremely successful in reaching out to the community.

Establishment of New TCM Clinic Providing Free Medical Consultation

One of JCI Mandarin Singapore’s proudest achievements was to successfully partner a 114-year-old charitable organization Sian Chay Medical Institution to establish a new TCM clinic located at 219 Jalan Kayu, to provide free medical consultation and low cost medicine to the needy and elderly. $212,018 were raised during the Inaugural Healing Arts Charity Gala Concert 2015 held at Resorts World Sentosa on 5 September 2015. Members formed partnerships with Sian Chay Medical Institution and arts charity Musical Theatre Limited to provide a sustainable solution for healthcare patients. The social impact of this project was phenomenal as hundreds of patients per month would continue to benefit from this clinic for several decades to come.

The Inaugural Healing Arts Charity Gala Concert was an extremely unique and meaningful gala dinner show where performances were put up by talents who were disabled or needy healthcare patients. This event was one of its kind to raise awareness of health issues using performing arts. Several members of JCI Mandarin Singapore were suffering from serious health conditions themselves, including disability, stroke, cancer, rare illnesses, etc. That is the reason why members gathered to organize this concert, using performing arts to help raise funds for charitable organizations.

The setup costs of this new TCM clinic were fully sponsored by JCI Mandarin Singapore. The opening ceremony was held on 27 December 2015. 2015 President Sean Wong and then 2016 President-elect Adelyne Fung had the honour to be part of the plaque unveiling ceremony together with GOH Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, Dr Lam Pin Min – Minister of State, Ministry of Health, MP Mr Gan Thiam Poh and MP Mr Darryl David.

A record amount of $212,018 were raised for charity by JCI Mandarin Singapore within a short span of time. During the Inaugural Healing Arts Charity Gala Concert organized by JCI Mandarin Singapore, members garnered the support of over 100 kind donors who generously gave to the cause of helping disadvantaged individuals and promoting health. A live auction raised $44,000 within half an hour. Foundations such as Crocodile Foundation and Tote Board also supported the event and provided funds. Many have previously advised members to set a lower target for fundraising, however, the team decided to go ahead with a challenging $200,000 target. The amount raised exceeded the target and this amount surpassed all fundraising efforts made by any chapter in the past years. The objective was to help others, thus JCI Mandarin Singapore decided that all donations would be made directly to the beneficiaries and the chapter would not take a single cent. To make the event even more meaningful, JCI Mandarin Singapore invited disadvantaged families, beneficiaries and JCI Singapore members to attend without charging a single cent, the first time this was ever done for a JCI Singapore dinner function. The chapter made no losses as members were able to find corporate sponsors to cover all event costs. Thus the full benefits of the fundraising went to the charity partners.

The Inaugural Healing Arts Charity Gala Concert 2015 was held in conjunction with the 35th Anniversary of JCI Mandarin Singapore, thus there were 250 invited guests from Singapore, Hong Kong and Malaysia.

During this event, JCI Mandarin Singapore also set a new Singapore record for the Singapore Book of Records, having the most number of tea flavours served and consumed simultaneously.

Members wished to use their personal experiences to touch the lives of others and to organize meaningful activities to reach out to more needy people in the community. Members strongly believed that performing arts could heal one’s soul and bring joy to the sick, thus the concert was organized.

“On behalf of the Board and Management of Sian Chay Medical Institution, I wish to express my sincere appreciation to the Board of Directors of JCI Mandarin Singapore for your active community service and fundraising efforts to support the renovation costs of a new TCM branch.”

– Dato’ Seri Dr Toh Soon Huat, BBM, Chairman of Sian Chay Medical Institution

“We applaud JCI Mandarin for their appreciation of the Arts, and are most grateful for their understanding of our efforts to use original works of art to improve the lives of many. We are thankful for their support, and are honoured to be able to contribute to this concert.”

– Stella Kon, Chairperson of Musical Theatre Limited

Other Community Events

During the 2015 Nepal Earthquake, members raised funds quickly and within a short span of 1 day, JCI Mandarin Singapore raised $800 and contributed to the fundraising efforts of JCI Singapore.

Earlier this year, members also provided assistance to feed elderly folks living at Pelangi Village while celebrating Chinese New Year with them. The elderly folks were filled with joy as members brought joy to them.

Media Coverage

2015 President Sean Wong was interviewed by radio channel JIA 88.3FM to share about JCI Mandarin Singapore’s mission and experiences he encountered as a jaycee. The radio interview garnered good listenership.

JCI Mandarin also arranged for the Presidents of sister chapters – Jessica Lee of JCI East Kowloon and Shane Lim of JCI Kuala Lumpur Mandarin to be interviewed together by the renowned host Eeva on the Eeva Show. The interview was conducted to let the public understand what JCI was, how each President managed the chapter in the respective country. This interview was broadcasted via webcast throughout the world.

The opening ceremony of the new TCM Clinic which was sponsored by JCI Mandarin Singapore, locatedat 219 Jalan Kayu, was officiated by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, Dr Lam Pin Min – Minister of State, Ministry of Health, MP Mr Gan Thiam Poh and MP Mr Darryl David. This event received extensive media publicity.

Renewal of Sisterhood Pact

In the beginning of the 2015, 2015 President Sean made trips to Malaysia and Hong Kong to visit JCI Kuala Lumpur Mandarin and JCI East Kowloon to re-establish relationships. JCI East Kowloon collaborated with JCI Mandarin Singapore for a project called Build-a-Backpack and was a great success. During ASPAC 2015, the various teams met up to discuss future collaboration and the friendships were sealed once again. On 5 September 2015, JCI East Kowloon and JCI Kuala Lumpur Mandarin renewed the sisterhood pacts with JCI Mandarin Singapore, witnessed by several delegates from these sister chapters who supported the Singapore event.
