A notable charity and community leader, Mr Lee Kim Siang is active and has served on various government board and committees.
He has pushed for the recognition of social service staff and helped professionalised community-based services in the social, health, emotional, education, family and disability sectors.
Ascribing to Thye Hua Kwan’s creed, Mr Lee is passionately involved in securing resources to ensure the sustainability of the social service sector.

THK, its staff and volunteers were at the forefront of the fight against SARS by offering social services which included counselling and free meals to quarantined families.
