My story

"Mama, you'r the unsung heroine of my life. You took up jobs as an odd job labourer. dishwasher and cleaner just to bring food to table. Now that all the years of hardship and worries have taken a toll on you, crippling your ability to walk and function as before. I will not leave you behind and will hold your hands, walk with you as you walked us when we were toddlers."

in the media

Chin Hock began his campaign to promote filial piety since 2009 after realising that aged parents in Singapore are often neglected when their children pursue success and career aspirations. Throughout these years, he had created a www.holdinghands.sg website, designed a reminder wristband, organised a running event, written short stories on family and actively advertised the campaign through social media and word-of-mouth. His story and campaign have touched the hearts of many. He was featured in numerous media and publications such as Men’s Health Singapore, The Straits Times, The Sunday Times, Lianhe Zaobao, Lianhe Wanbao, Beanstalk, Vibes, theAsianparents, Families for Life and Dadsforlifeportal etc.
