MEET THE TEAM

President – Freeke Quik

Life in Singapore for many people is very comfortable. Singapore is a wealthy state and has a lot of luxury to offer. But unfortunately, like in many first world countries, poverty remains a problem for a small group. Mostly it’s hidden behind closed doors. For these people the sun doesn’t always shine on this tropical island.

In the Netherlands I worked as a public health doctor in youth healthcare. Health and poverty are inextricably linked. Unfortunately I cannot do this medical work in Singapore.

But with the NCA I hope to make a small contribution in poverty relief for those who don’t benefit from Singapores wealth by raising money for our charities and organizing activities to help people have food, fun or other things that give a little sunshine in their lives.

Vice-President – Patricia Arkenbout

In the summer of 2019, my husband, three children and I moved from The Netherlands to Singapore to experience an adventure abroad together as a family. Since then I have mostly experienced the bright side and benefits of this country. Although I really enjoy this side, my desire in getting to know the other side of this interesting country has always been there too.

Therefore I am very happy and excited to have joined the NCA as Vice President. Together with the other enthusiastic and dedicated board members I am very driven to contribute in giving something back to Singapore by supporting the charities NCA has chosen.

Treasurer – Sabina Talstra

In August 2018, I moved to Singapore together with my husband and our two kids. It’s our first time abroad and I knew little about Singapore. It’s a great opportunity to be here and get to know this part of the world, so we are happy to be here. Although Singapore is known as a rich and well-developed country, I found out there is more poverty here, than you can see at first sight.

When I heard about the NCA, I was happy to join them in helping the less priviliged people in Singapore. In the Netherlands I used to work as a controller and I will also use my experience as the treasurer of the NCA.

Being a volunteer for the NCA is for me a way to get to know other aspects of Singapore and Singaporians. Together with a great team of volunteers, we hope to make a difference for the people in need here.

Secretary – Lyke Schouten

I have moved with my family to Singapore in the summer of 2019. After settling in I was looking forward to becoming more involved with some charity work. I really like that the NCA focuses on charities geared to persons falling between the cracks of society. It also gives me the chance to have a different outlook on Singapore and its people, which I find enriching.

Marketing & Communications – Audrey Walbeehm

Via former enthusiastic NCA volunteers I got to know about this charity organization right from the beginning, as soon as we moved to Singapore 2,5 years ago. During our former post in Bangkok I was doing volunteer work helping refugees. Through this experience I learned that helping others gives you another perspective on society and can be very rewarding.
My goal joining the NCA team, is to get a better perspective on the Singaporean society. I like to be an active volunteer, meeting different local people who are in need.

I also look forward working together with our fresh and diverse team, everyone having their own field of expertise. Furthermore, I would like to use my work experience as an online marketer to benefit NCA’s marketing and communication activities.
