On 14 October 2011, Ms Aileen Tan, Singtel’s Group Director of Human Resource, presented the cheque to the Prime Minister of Thailand, Ms Yingluck Shinawatra, in Bangkok, Thailand.

Ms Tan said, “We are saddened by the plight of the Thai people resulting from the worst flood in Thailand in 30 years.  Together with AIS, our regional mobile associate in Thailand, we want to extend our assistance to the local people.

“We hope that our donation to the Office of the Prime Minister’s Disaster Relief Fund will help to alleviate the situation. Our thoughts are with the Thai people during this difficult time.”
