Billionaire heiress and entrepreneur Kim Lim and her new fiancé are embarking on a philanthropic project to show their appreciation for frontline healthcare workers.

Meals for hospital staff

The couple, who got engaged on Sep. 30, is giving away two meals a day for 1,500 frontline staff at various hospitals around Singapore for a week, starting Saturday (Nov. 6).

The initiative is in collaboration with F&B company Fei Siong Group, which gave her a discount on local favourite eateries like Encik Tan, reported 8 Days.

“With the rise in cases, sometimes all we need is a push to keep us going,” said Lim, in a press release by her social enterprise, KelHealth Group.

"Things have been tough for the frontliners and those invisible people we don’t see working hard in the background, like our cleaners or janitors...We want to remind them, through our love of food, that there are people out here who are cheering them on. We want to thank them for every effort they have put in.”

Collaboration with SIA

Lim is also currently in talks with Singapore Airlines (SIA) to gift air tickets to essential workers to plan their overseas travels to their homes and families.

With this initiative, the social enterprise hopes to give hope to frontliners who have not met their loved ones in almost two years since the start of the pandemic.

Lim told 8 Days that the idea came to her when the Ministry of Health (MOH) announced its decision to lift the suspension on overseas travel for healthcare workers.

She said that she admires healthcare workers for their "courage and strength", and that their work "can be tiring and mentally draining".

In July this year, Lim distributed special care packages to over 1,100 healthcare personnels at Fullerton Health.

Kim's dad is a low profiled gentleman, he is hardly in the news, Kim may have followed in her dad's footstep to honour the front line & health care workers for their relentless contributions to the extremely difficult pandemic period.

We Salute her and heartiest Congratulations on her big day.

a rich man's kid wants to get some attention by throwing money around....is not news worthy! anyway, our media also wants to entertain those people. That explains SPH is in trouble. No one read their news anymore. 😁

Ok la....at least their wealth allows them to give back. Good for them

Turning it into a badly executed publicity stunt is the slippery slope

Regardless the actual motive, at least she is spending money and using her fame to support the front line worker, many times better than other attention seekers.

At least they have heart to contribute their money and time. See any of the billionaires here doing the same? Especially those Chinese billionaires. Do they treat this island like home? Ever see ppl like gongli contribute something while she was a citizen here? Zit. A lot of them are just rich opportunists.

Be it Charity or giving back to society most importantly is the money and resources help a good cause. I think we as a person will also be happier if we try not to second guess a kind initiative too much.

OK la. At least so many people have benefited. This is not a one off thing. She has been doing it regularly locally and abroad. When she formed her company, she made sure part of the profits go to charity.

At least she is better than those who mod the cars to create Pops and Bangs or race at Tanjong Pagar.
