步入第五个年头的“沉默英雄”奖项由民间组织“新加坡民众协会 （Civilians Association of Singapore, 前称Hillview Civilians体育俱乐部）颁发，目的是肯定在社会行善并作出贡献的平凡民众。今年有25人获提名，其中四人获颁奖项。
Chen Guoxin, who is 93 years old, often carries supermarket gift vouchers with him in praise of the bus driver. He would also like to thank the cleaning staff in the area for a 10 yuan gift voucher to affirm their contribution to society. He was awarded the Silent Hero Award last night.
Whenever Chen Guoxin takes a bus, he will observe the driver, and will give a gift certificate when he encounters a driver with a good attitude, hoping to encourage them and make them “work happier.”
Chen Guoxin, who is 93 years old, often carries supermarket gift vouchers with him in praise of the bus driver. He would also like to thank the cleaning staff in the area for a 10 yuan gift voucher to affirm their contribution to society.
He also promoted health in the community spontaneously. Since the establishment of the Zhonglulu Garden Running Club in the 1970s, he also donated 100,000 yuan to the Singapore team fund in the name of the club last year to support the cultivation of sports talents in China. He was awarded the Silent Heroes Award last night, taking the trophy from Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Economic and Social Policy Coordination Chantaman.
Entering the fifth year, the “Silent Heroes” award is awarded by the civil organization “Civilians Association of Singapore (formerly Hillview Civilians Sports Club). It aims to affirm ordinary people who have done good and contribute to society. 25 Were nominated and four of them were awarded prizes.
Chen Guoxin started running because he wanted to keep fit. Running later extended to basketball activities. He would regularly play basketball with some seniors on the basketball court in Henderson Road’s HDB area. As he gets older this year, he has become the “cheerleader” of the basketball team.
He said that the gift certificates were started to encourage the neighborhood movement. Even today, he will regularly go to the district park in the early morning to give early morning riders a gift coupon of 10 yuan. Later, he also thanked the silent cleaners and bus drivers with gift certificates.
Chen Guoxin said: “We will hear some people complain about the bus master, but they forget that they also have a good attitude driver. When I gave the gift certificate, the driver’s first response was very unexpected and he refused to accept it, but I told him: I want to praise you, just a little bit of heart. Good driver, we have to praise, he will be happy and motivated when he works. “
Chen Guoxin, who has enjoyed his son, Sun Fu, is also a good employer. Lia (51 years old), a maid who has worked for him for nearly 20 years, said that after her nephew completed a nursing course and encountered problems finding a job in Singapore, the employer asked him if he would continue to study medicine in his hometown and expressed his willingness to fund he. Nephew’s nursing and medical courses are employer-funded.
Chen Guoxin said that the maid’s nephew had lacked the love of his mother since he was a child. He knew that the young man studied hard and decided to support his medical education.
Chen Guoxin was not affluent. He only had a middle school degree. He worked in a trading company that year and slowly advanced to higher vocational levels. “I do good regardless of age, and I will continue to do what I have been doing, whether or not I have won a prize,” he said.
The stroke recoverer also parachuted four times in Australia and celebrated his 90th birthday three years ago with this event. Li Meiyi, 27, a teacher who nominated him, said she and her family saw Chen Guoxin in the park a few years ago in the park and talked to him to join the running club. “Bo Chen has done a lot for the community and he is so active at this age that he deserves praise.”
Nimala (65), the founder of the non-profit organization Child @ Street 11, is another winner. The nursery established by the organization provides low-cost education for children from disadvantaged families. She said that she won the prize thanks to her entire team.
Chandaman affirmed the contributions of the winners and the organizers of the awards. They show how to use charity to improve society. This is our Singapore story. Everyone has the ability to help others and build a better and more inclusive society.
