Meet our Soaper Heroes
JENA ROSARIA PASCUA
This fun and dynamic soaper woman joins the Singapore team regularly volunteer and prepare soap for distribution throughout the year. Jena has been a domestic worker in Singapore for 15 years. She is also a marathoner (she has run 7 full marathons and counting!), a cyclist and does competitive dragon boat racing.
Daniel Yap spotted a need amongst the migrant worker community and reached out to us for soap to distribute to them. Daniel is the owner of Yihong Trading Enterprise and he personally delivers groceries and vegetables to various dormitories located at different corners of the island. In July 2020, he helped to distribute 800 bars of soap to 200 migrant workers staying at a dorm in the West.
NINA “CUTE” ROTELO
When the Taal Volcano south of Manila erupted in January 2020, Nina Rotelo rose to the occasion to help her countrymen affected by the natural disaster and shipped home 30kg (enough for 60 kids for a year!) of reprocessed soap and other goodies for needy families in her village of Visayas, Philippines.
