Launch of New Charity: The J B Jeyaretnam Foundation

January 05th 2021

On this day in 1926, J B Jeyaretnam, the first Opposition MP to be elected to Parliament post-1965, was born. JBJ, as he was affectionately known, passed away on 30 September 2008.

Though he can no Ionger be with us his legacy lives on to be preserved for future generations.

We are very excited to announce today, on JBJ’s birthday, that a charity in his name is to be set up in Singapore. The new charity will be called the J B Jeyaretnam Foundation. (subject to regulatory approval)

The objective of this charity will be poverty relief concentrating on the pockets of poverty amongst marginalized groups that were dear to JBJ’s heart.

Some of you may know that we held a dinner to raise funds for this project a couple of years ago. We are delighted that JBJ’s protégé, M. Ravi, has kindly agreed to do the legal work for setting up the Charity at a generously reduced rate, to match the funds we have already raised. Therefore we will not be requesting donations at this stage.

If you would like to find out more or want to become involved in this exciting project or just wish to make a donation in the future please contact us below.

We look forward to your enquiries.

  • Harder Truths:

    You are sorely missed by those who knew you JBJ. A Gentleman, a Scholar and a Humanitarian. Wherever you are I am sure you are doing well. God Bless.

    And thank you to all the people who have made this possible. His legacy lives on in this charity.

    Dear All,
    Kenneth is another AngMo Tua Kee /Ang <a href="#comment-1111111"Mo My <a href="#comment-1111111"Master.(AMTK/AMMM)
    Everything must obey AMTK/AMMM.

    Singapore has no place for AMTK/AMMM (Oxygen, Roy, Kenneth and the likes)
    And Singapore has no place for China Tua Kee/China My Master (Tan Kin Lian, Goh Meng Seng and the likes) (CTK/CMM)

    Americunt/Britcunt/Cinacunt is a constant diet feed of 1% truth, 99% lies, fantasy and propaganda.

    Singapore is for Singapore Tua Kee.
    Singapore’s interest come first. (Yes, country interest come first, then follow by Singaporeans interest) Remember Country before self.

    I don’t trust the J brothers. Anything and everything said or written by the eldest Son is undermined by the younger Son who is now a judicial officer in the Leedy nasty. Elder Son must renounce and denounce his younger brother or he will not possess any credibility. Best for him to retire back to UK.

    That’s why I can’t understand why people are so stupid to support politicians and their family members.

  • I had the honour of knowing the late JBJ when he was Workers Party and I was a young punk civil servant. He was indeed a down-to-earth, humble and honorable man, although he does talk loudly at times.

    The reason people start a charity organization is not because they want to help, do not fall for it.

    They start the charity organization because they want to create jobs for own self and kaki lang.

    Just like all the oppie like to say, own self employ own self, own self cheque own self.

    Don’t believe me ? Ask Ven Ming Yi and Pastor Kong.

    1)Reported on Straits Times :Quote -”Retiree donates $1 million to start the Sunshine Trust to give a light of hope to those in need

    Retiree Rajan Jain hopes the Sunshine Trust can bring “light and sunshine” into the lives of those in need here.ST PHOTO: MARK CHEONG

    SINGAPORE – Mr Rajan Jain, 67, is not some fabulously rich multi-millionaire, but he is donating $1 million to start a charitable trust to help those in need.

    He retired in 2018 as the chief of global sales at Schmetz, a German firm that produces needles….”Unquote .

    2)Reported on Straits Times(Some months back) :Quote -”Coronavirus: Food firm founded by billionaire Kishin RK sets up foundation to provide free food to those in need …..”Unquote .

    Response : Singapore has so many b**$* Indians setting up more and more public trust charity funds on the basis to help the needy people.And such charity funds is still being setup more and more but the needy people doesn’t seem to diminish and disappear off ,why ? Is our government madly pumping and siphoning off our public funds in a round about way pumping out our public funds into such charity systems control by private organisations such that all these private charity organisations are getting more and more millions in rather than distributing out their own funds ? No wonder all these b**$* Indians are setting more and more charity funds to fatten their own pockets ! Help to the needy for them is very minimum ! If really maximum or effective,such needy people will already don’t exist long ago with so many charity organisations available !Pui! And why is Kenneth Jeyaretnam also setting another charity organisation when there is already many charity organisation in existenance and such system isn’t working to solve society problem ! If costs of living keep rising ,no matter how many charity organisation is setup also has limited use for there are too many needy that need help ! Pui!

    And needy people don’t just need food and water for survival.Needy people also need spectacles glasses to see clearly, shoes,underwear,clothes, wheelchair if they cannot walk,……Just provide food alone and then problem solve for needy is a mocking joke .
