UFM100.3 DJs volunteer their time and effort for good social causes

Singapore, 9 January 2015 - “UShine” (从关怀出发) is UFM100.3’s year-long campaign to address different social causes and issues monthly on air. UFM100.3 aims to highlight issues of minority communities and create public awareness to show concern and help the less fortunate. 

Through this campaign, UFM100.3’s fans will follow a monthly feature that brings them on a journey of discovery of helping and improving lives of the less privileged in our community. 

This year, UFM100.3 DJs make it a point to volunteer their time and effort for the cause or organisation they are working on. Their experience and interviews will be featured on-air daily over two weeks, generating awareness of the beneficiary or community of that month’s focus.

UFM100.3’s program director and evening drive DJ, Carine Ang (菁云), will kick start January’s edition of UShine with the focus on Lion Befrienders’ Befriending Program where volunteers befriend the elderly through home visits, to help lessen the loneliness and isolation of these elderly.  Carine will also join volunteers when they make their visits to find out more about how the program has brought smiles to the lonely elderly.  

Other upcoming features include volunteering overseas, saving street dogs and caring for the environment.

Carine Ang, Program Director of UFM100.3, SPH Radio, said: “I am thrilled that our DJs will be sharing their firsthand experience at volunteering with their listeners and fans this time round.  Through the UShine programme, we hope that UFM100.3 listeners will become more aware of the less fortunate around us and extend their care towards them.”

The January edition will be aired on UFM100.3 from 12-23 January at 7.30am11.30am4.30pm and 8.30pm. It will conclude with a volunteering event with 50 listeners on 24 January who will accompany the volunteers to do home visits around Bendemeer area.
