Dear friends,

We are deeply moved to know that we do not mourn alone. Various Singaporean clubs are coming together to organise memorials to honour and remember the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew. We have compiled the events that we are currently aware of. (as of 28 Mar @ 1000 hrs)

You may wish to contact your nearest overseas Singaporean club to check if they will be holding an event.  The list of clubs can be found here. We will also be updating this page regularly so do let us know if you are holding an event and would be open to having fellow Singaporeans in the area attend.  We will include your event on this list.

If you would like to express your condolences, you may do so through the following ways:

  1. At our Singapore Missions overseas.  The Condolence Book will be open during regular office hours.  
  2. Through the official website at www.rememberingleekuanyew.sg
  3. Download the attached template and email or post your message to the nearest Singapore Mission overseas.  These messages will be collated and sent back to the Prime Minister’s Office in Singapore.

#thankyouLKY #rememberingLKY
