On The Red Dot: Friends for a Better World - Kupang Project

Channel NewsAsia and Singapore’s Channel 5 broadcast the ‘On the Red Dot: Friends for a Better World’ TV series in 2016 features Singaporeans who are on a mission to do good beyond our borders, while forging meaningful friendships along the way. We journey to different countries each week and discover how these Singapore citizen ambassadors, with the help of the Singapore International Foundation, are turning their dreams to change the world, into a reality.

In this episode, we share about the friendship between our Singapore Internationale artist Richard Tan and an Indonesian pilot Budi Soehardi who gave up his wings to run an orphanage. Find out how Budi is using the network of good he has built up with his Singapore friends to change the lives of the abandoned children he takes in.
