The family of late actor Aloysius Pang have announced that contributions generously given to them after Pang’s passing have been used to make donations toward Pang’s main passions — helping children and animals in need.
The Pang family, in memory of the late Pang, adopted the Pangolin Exhibit of the Night Safari of the Wildlife Reserves Singapore Group and made donations to Club Rainbow, an organisation providing compassionate services to children with chronic illnesses and their families.
Pang’s older brother, Kenny Pang, took to Instagram on July 5 to talk about how the Pang family has been putting donations made toward his late younger brother to good causes that reflect Pang’s special love for animals and desire to help struggling children.
Here is his post:

It’s been almost 6 months. Thank you for all the care and concern everyone has given to our family. We are endlessly grateful. . He had always been passionate about helping needy children and loved animals. Therefore, we would like to share that we have made donations with your kind contributions to honour and continue his passion. . Earlier this year, we made a donation to Club Rainbow (Singapore) which provides compassionate services to children with chronic illnesses. This month, we made another donation to Wildlife Reserves Singapore Group adopting the Pangolin Exhibit. Both in loving memory of him. We hope this contribution can help the organisations in any way possible! -kp . #rememberingaloysiuspang @club.rainbow @wrs.ig
In his post, Kenny thanked everyone for the “care and concern” that they have shown to the Pang family following Aloysius’ untimely death on January 23 of this year. He was undergoing reservist training in New Zealand at the time. Thousands of people were deeply saddened by his death and turned up in full force to pay their respects and show support to his family at his wake. Many made donations to his family, which they have used toward the two causes dearest to Aloysius’ heart.
“He [Aloysius] had always been passionate about helping needy children and loved animals. Therefore, we would like to share that we have made donations with your kind contributions to honour and continue his passion. We hope this contribution can help the organisations in any way possible!” wrote kenny.
The Pang family chose to adopt the Pangolin Exhibit in the Night Safari, the world’s first Sunda pangolin exhibit which first opened in 2009. They also chose to give contributions toward Club Rainbow, whose Talent Development Fund helps children battling chronic diseases with their artistic and technical abilities and aspirations.

“IT’s been almost six months,” wrote kenny. “Thank you for all the care and concern everyone has given to our family. we are endlessly grateful.”
Supporters of Aloysius and of the Pang family had only wonderful words to say in response to Kenny’s announcement regarding the donations. They expressed how much Aloysius’ presence is missed, they communicated their continued support of his causes, and they applauded his family for the good and kind deeds they are carrying out in his memory.
The children (and the pangolins!) are definitely worthy recipients of the help so generously given by caring members of the general public. Ultimately, that help is a testament to Aloysius Pang and how he impacted the lives of many for the better. /TISG
