Singaporean Socialite Kim Lim Helped Build Houses For The Poor In Mongolia

Kim Lim, bilionnaire heiress, socialite, mum-of-one and… philanthropist? The 27-year-old daughter of Singaporean billionaire Peter Lim who owns Spanish La Liga club Valencia, visited Mongolia in October, where she made headlines for helping to build gers, or houses, for the homeless there.

Kim posted a series of photos on her Instagram account of her time there, where she also distributed food to the poor, and visited eldercare centres and orphanages. 

She told The New Paper (TNP) that she was motivated to help after watching a documentary on the homeless situation in Mongolia, and that being a mother has opened her eyes to the importance of taking care of children, especially those in impoverished areas. 

“Now that I am a mum, it made me realise that kids depend on us for everything and it is important for them to have a good childhood,” she said.

She dedicated one of the houses to her one-year-old son, Kyden, with the following caption:

Kyden, daddy and mummy have contributed these gers (houses) under your name to those who seriously need it. Really happy that all the houses have been completed just before the winter. We can’t change the world but we can make a difference by every bit we do – this difference means the world to those receiving it. Hope that you will understand the joy of paying it forward when you grow up one day too.

How beautiful.  “I want my kid to grow up and understand the value of paying it forward and care for the people in need,” she told TNP. After Mongolia, Kim intends to do more charity projects to help children in need and the less privileged in general.
