Community Work

Dr Janice Khoo has a strong passion for helping the needy and has been the driving force to various charity and voluntary work for the community in Singapore and overseas.

Wanting to instil the sense of volunteerism to her children, she encouraged  her four daughters to participate in an overseas trip with Mercy Relief, where her children helped to re-build and re-furbish an orphanage in Medan for two weeks. Prior to their departure, her daughters performed at a private charity concert to raise funds for the replacement of bug-infested beds in the orphanage. Through the concert, a sum of  $12,000 was raised. She and her husband Dr Peter Lee joined the group at the end of the two-week mission to provide health screening services to the orphans. Medical provisions for health supplements and treatment given to the orphans soon extended to the families and villagers who came to know of it.

Other medical mission trips they have covered include work for the Ministry of Health in Seychelles, rural hospitals in Indonesia and Myanmar.

In 2007, she raised $12,500 for the School Pocket Money Fund through sponsors who supported her first run in the full Standard Chartered Marathon.

Raising funds for the needy inspired her to finish the race in 4 hours 15 mins.
