Under their supervision, the foundation must continue all the projects it has sponsored since its founding. It should also work towards establishing a set of world class awards similar to the status and purposes of the Nobel Prizes.

3. The directors of “Chinatrust Foundation Pte Ltd” should, under the supervision of the council mentioned above, continue to expand the business and capital of all the assets under its control, to ensure it will continue to grow and will continue to spend part of its profits on charitable purposes for eternity.

b) It should also support the brother of my husband and the education of his children to university level.
