Borneo Motors, the official distributor for Toyota vehicles in Singapore, has donated a new Hiace van to the Singapore Association of Mental Health (SAMH), as part of the company’s outreach efforts to enrich lives in Singapore. The official handover ceremony took place at Toyota’s showroom at Leng Kee Road, and Borneo says that the donation aims to help SAMH enhance their ability to reach out to the community.

“Through our donation, we aim to support SAMH in realising their vision of promoting mental wellness for all through greater mobility,” said Jasmmine Wong, CEO of Borneo Motors. “This is in line with Toyota’s vision of creating mobility for all, and is representative of our commitment to enriching lives, developing people and contributing to the Singaporean society,” she adds.

The donated Hiace van will help SAMH to provide a safe and timely mode of transport for beneficiaries attending the programmes and activities across SAMH centres, and enable beneficiaries to attend external events, engagements organised by SAMH or corporate partners, and appointments (i.e. medical appointments or job interviews) accompanied by SAMH staff.

The SAMH is Borneo’s latest community partnership in Singapore, with the company also recently teaming up with the Singapore Golf Association, through the distributor’s Lexus brand, to be their exclusive partner for the next three years, with the aim of fostering future golfing talents in Singapore, and promoting the sport here. Borneo also sponsored Singapore’s Olympic gold-winning swimmer Joseph Schooling in 2018.
