Monday, May 02, 2005 always at forefront of late President Wee's endeavours ": By Lee Foong Ming, Channel NewsAsia

The National Council of Social Service on Monday paid tribute to the late President Wee Kim Wee, citing his tireless efforts in bringing charitable relief to many people in need.

Dr Wee was Patron-in-Chief of the NCSS from 1985 to 1993 when he was President of Singapore.
Among the many initiatives launched by Dr Wee was the Care and Share Month in 1987.
This marked the Community Chest's first concerted effort to reach a whole nation with the message of caring and sharing with the less fortunate.
And in June 1989, Volunteers Month was launched to recognise volunteers for their giving spirit"
