About the Donor

This Study Grant has been made possible by the bequest of the late Mr Lim Doa Hin. Born in China in the 1920s, Mr Lim sailed to Singapore as an optimistic young man with a very positive outlook of life despite having endured the hardships of World War II. Undeterred by the initial hardships, Mr Lim impressed those he met with his positive attitude, good character in practical faithfulness, diligence, thrift and honesty. These qualities put him in good stead as he developed his small to medium enterprises encapsulated in a company that he incorporated as Houw Hing Holdings Pte Ltd, operating in the Boat Quay/Circular Road area.

Despite his achievements, including having to raise a brood of about a dozen children, Mr Lim tried hard not to neglect his social responsibilities to the community. Towards his amber years, Mr Lim decided to will his Estate for charitable purposes, with emphasis on granting financial aid to eligible students who are financially challenged so as to enhance their educational pursuits, in humble but meaningful ways.
