Living in Singapore, we have been truly fortunate to have experienced little or no natural disasters in our years of existence.

In some folks, that sense of gratitude has translated into a desire to help others further afield, sometimes at great risk to themselves. Nowhere is that more apparent than in our SCDF, which is the first organisation in the Asia-Pacific region to be classified by the International Search and Rescue Advisory Group as a heavy Urban Search and Rescue team. We chat with two Operationally Ready National Servicemen who have volunteered for Operation Lionheart.

May they be shining examples for us all to reach out to help our fellow human beings, at home or abroad.

With 9 August around the corner, we wish all Singaporeans a very happy National Day!
