Dr. Desmond Teo Yen Koon’s Charitable Activities in Thailand
Well-travelled Dr. Desmond Teo supports a number of charitable activities in Thailand including donations to both Mealanoi Ladonsic and Measaleng Schools located in Mae Hong Son province or Maehongsorn, which lies in the northern province of Thailand. As access to clean water is of paramount importance in rural areas, Dr. Desmond Teo Yen Koon bought water storage tanks for the school to have a stable water supply. This will allow the school not to face any water shortage problems in the future. Other items donated include school books, clothing, audio stereo. Also, to ensure the poor are not denied an education, scholarships are set up and in place for the children.
In 2012, an initiative was launched to conduct ground physical research at Charoenphol, Thailand. The charity drive is to raise funds to help over 40 homeless families due to a fire breakout with the primary objective to provide food and rebuild the damaged homes.
