More than 500 members of Integration and Naturalisation Committees (INCs) and grassroot leaders attended the inaugural INClusive Award and Appreciation Nite 2015 awards ceremony today.
The awards ceremony was organized by the People’s Association at The Grassroots Club in Yio Chu Kang to recognize outstanding INCs that helped integrate foreigners into SIngapore’s local community.
One of the awardees is 50 year-old Paul Chee, who decided to join and lead an INC team because he wanted his Vietnamese wife, a new citizen, to feel at home in Singapore. He is the chairman of the Ayer Rajah Integration and Naturalisation Committee.
20 other INC teams also received the Outstanding IN Committee award. The awards ceremony also paid tribute to the efforts of the many new citizens in these committees who took time out of their schedules to help bridge the gap between Singaporeans and foreigners.
