A walk down memory lane

The Singapore Red Cross, with its contributions over the past 70 years, has a special place in local history and stands as a leader to communities and organisations with humanitarian objectives. The Red Cross House was officially opened in 1961 by Yang di-Pertuan Negara Yusof bin Ishak, who was then the Patron of the Singapore Red Cross. Red Cross House was originally a two-storey building designed by Dr Ho Kok Hoe, a pioneering architect who was also President of the Singapore Art Society. A third storey was added in the 1970s and the building was conserved in 2014. A community mural (‘the red wall’) was commissioned to amplify the good work the homegrown humanitarian organisation does for the city’s vulnerable, as it turns 70 in 2019.
