We are teaming up with Diningcity, and are launching a special “Dine and Donate” event. Wouldn’t it be great if you can enjoy a diner with your friend(s), and at the same contribute to a festive diner for someone in need: Between 1 and 19 December you can order 1 specially curated set menu at one of the participating restaurants for yourself and donate the equivalent value to NCA. With this donation, we will order special bento sets during Christmas time, for migrant workers who have been sheltered by H.O.M.E. Find out more by clicking here
