SINGAPORE, June 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- On June 6, more than 200 NCH Asia employees and family members, gathered at the Singapore Flyer and built bicycles for the Pertapis Children's Home in Singapore. They have volunteered with a variety of organizations across Asia in the past, and took the opportunity to give back to the Singapore community during the annual NCH Asia Conference trip. NCH Corporation is a family run business, driven by traditional family values and tries to do its part to ensure quality of life for their families and communities.

NCH Asia employees and family members built 30 bicycles for the Pertapis Children’s Home in Singapore.

To build the bikes, the participants were split into teams and given all the tools necessary to construct a children's bike and a teenager bike. According to Ku Lee, the Country Manager of NCH Singapore, "It was incredible working together as a team and building these bikes. I think people really enjoyed being able to take part in something that gives back to the community and benefits children."

A few days after the event, a select group of NCH employees and family members went to Pertapis to officially present 30 bikes to a group of children at the home. The Pertapis Children's Home is able to give care for 80 children from the age of 4 to 16 years old. Their vision is to nurture today's children for a better tomorrow and their mission is to provide quality educational and social services by empowering beneficiaries to work hand-in-hand with our stakeholders to be a community of excellence. Their core values include honesty, optimism, perseverance, endurance, and serving the community are also shared by NCH Asia.

The children of Pertapis had huge smiles on their faces as they jumped on the bikes and rode around the courtyard. Even some of the NCH employees joined in and raced around with them. One of these employees was Stephen Scahill, the Country Manager of NCH Australia, who said, "This was by far, the best team building activity we have ever done. It was great to participate in something, that will help the local community, in a small way."  That opinion is shared across the region.
