SAF Day just got a whole lot more festive at SAFRA!

By Sean Yee        7 July 2023

It is not said enough how valuable the contributions of our NSmen are in keeping our nation safe, especially when amidst an uncertain climate. From the SARS epidemic in 2003 to the ongoing Russia-Ukraine war, our National Servicemen and women preserve a priceless sense of normalcy that keeps everyone going. 

To thank our NSmen and women, SAFRA has prepared close to over 200 deals partnered with over 160 merchants islandwide to commemorate SAF Day 2023. We’ve consolidated 10 of the most unique promotions to truly represent SAFRA’s appreciation for our NSmen.

You can further elevate your party with a sizzling edge when you opt for its Napoleon Professional Charcoal Grill, infusing your cooking experience with aromatic smokiness. Of course, the greatest inconvenience of such gatherings is the clean-up. Well, not here, as we do the cleaning for you. All you have to do is enjoy the cooking and eating!
