Volunteering with the Singapore Red Cross primarily as a volunteer photographer, in addition to being a liaison officer trained in disaster management, has been a life-changing experience for me.

It has brought on new facets and meaning to my life. It has certainly broadened the scope of my photographic coverage. I started covering disasters, relief operations, reconstruction efforts, liaison and livelihood programmes, suffering of survivors and the staff and volunteers at work. My volunteering experience included covering the earthquake and tsunami hit Nias and West Aceh, disaster relief during the floods in Langkat (North Sumatra), Muar, Iligan and Cagayan de Oro in Mindanao, in addition to numerous major Singapore Red Cross events in Singapore. In the aftermath of Cyclone Nargis, I was also a member of the advance party that went to Myanmar and led a medical team to Ormoc, Philippines after Typhoon Haiyan.

Volunteering gave me opportunities to meet and help people in need, including building an orphanage and school in Nias. It also provided me with enriching experiences that brought me to places and situations that I never even dreamt of. Moreover, I found new friends from the world over. I would have missed all these opportunities had I not been volunteering with the Singapore Red Cross. Indeed, memories are precious. It gives me great joy to see the cheerful and radiant smiles of happy beneficiaries and donors captured in my pictures.
