    When making the delivery of today’s lunch of abalone, prawns, fish and vegetables, Ms Rosalind Lee, Head of Enterprise Banking, Group Commercial Banking, UOB, said, “Thanks to the care and tireless efforts of our healthcare workers over the past few months, we have seen the recovery of many COVID-19 patients. Even as Singapore continues to re-open cautiously, we recognise that the fight against COVID-19 is not over and that our healthcare heroes have and continue to work around the clock to keep us safe.


    “We hope that through our contribution, we not only give our healthcare heroes a nourishing meal to fill their stomachs but also something to warm their hearts as we stand united with them in the fight against COVID-19.”
