"We, Cordlife, are a consumer healthcare company catering to the mother and child and we have a keen interest in the well-being of mums and their kids," said Mr Yee.
"When it came to the attention of myself and my colleagues at Cordlife that there were families living in Jalan Kayu who were in need of financial aid to send their children to pre-school, we decided to commit to a three-year sponsorship to finance the Cordlife-Jalan Kayu Preschool Head-Start Fund.
