Mr. Clarence Ling, CEO

HISTORY

Circle Of Friends was founded in Singapore, in 2014, by Clarence Ling. He was inspired by his family tradition of providing education and service to the community.

 

In 1894, his great grandmother was featured in the New York Times as the first Asian female physician ​to have graduated from medical studies in USA. Upon her return to China, she took charge of the Woolston Memorial hospital in Fuzhou. She later opened a small medical school for women.

 

​Clarence recalls volunteering alongside his father, Dr. Ling, to help the residents in Singapore Cheshire Home since the 1970s, while his grandfather was involved in establishing Singapore's first Chinese YMCA Center in the 1950s.

 

​Through Circle of Friends, we continue to serve our community by reaching out to youths at risk through engagement programmes, community outreach projects, skills-based workshops and life skills coaching.
