About the Donor

The Study Grant is made possible by a gift from the Diana Koh Foundation, through The Community Foundation of Singapore. Madame Maria Lim Leng Swan was the mother of Ms Diana Koh Ming Ying. Madame Lim Leng Swan passed away in 2008. Ms Diana Koh passed away in May 2019, leaving behind an Estate that she has willed to charitable organisations in Singapore. Given Diana’s deep devotion to her mother, her Estate has deemed it appropriate to leave a legacy in memory of Madame Lim Leng Swan by providing support to the nursing sector in Singapore from the Diana Koh Foundation. Madame Lim was a trained nurse who had to overcome many challenges in her own lifetime. Yet she raised Diana to be a successful and caring individual. This legacy is intended to celebrate both their lives.
