Elaine Lim was elected a member of ONE (SINGAPORE)’s Executive Committee member at the 2022 Annual General Meeting. She is a qualified accountant, who works as a finance professional in a US tech company.
This is Elaine’s first foray into volunteer work, though she has donated to a number of charitable organisations over the years. Her passion for helping the less fortunate has been amplified, after seeing the unequal hardships brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic. While professionals could work from the comfort of home, and still be paid monthly wages, a large segment of the community lost their livelihoods.
Elaine believes that we can all make a difference to end poverty, by giving our time, talent or resources. When communities have the basic necessities to live their lives with dignity, the world is a better place.
Outside of work, Elaine is a fitness enthusiast, who also enjoys spending time with her kids and experimenting with new recipes.
