Medical benefits administrator and health technology business MHC Asia Group yesterday donated $1 million in total during its 25th anniversary celebrations. The sum includes $100,000 for The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund, which provides pocket money to children from low-income families to help them with school-related expenses. The other beneficiaries were the Singapore Medical Association's (SMA) independent charity arm - the SMA Charity Fund; three local medical schools, to help medical students in need; and non-profit organisation Goducate, to help needy South-east Asian students.
