Dear Friends,


“Going Forward!”

The Waterways Watch Society would like to wish everyone a 
“Happy 57th National Day!”

This week, as we celebrate our 57th year of Independence as a nation, we are reminded to continuously strive and brace ourselves staying united and resolute to keep our nation peaceful and secure. In the same light, the Waterways Watch Society has worked tirelessly for the past 24 years to spread the word of keeping our waterways clean and safe and that we cannot take it (water) for granted. We will continue to do this.

Hence, Waterways Watch Society has just launched a new donation campaign on giving.sg as a lead up to our annual carnival which will be held in the fourth quarter this year. We hope to garner your support by sharing this with your friends and families. The funds collected from this campaign will be used to support the carnival and the mission of Waterways Watch Society. This donation campaign is supported by Tote Board’s Enhanced Fund-Raising Programme Dollar-for-Dollar Matching.

On 8th August we were featured on Channel 8. The programme covered our Filippina Team  doing Clean-Up at Kallang Basin. Thank you Team and thank you Channel 8. The video will be uploaded on our website on 10 August.
