Charities Week 2020
by Caritas Singapore Community Council - The Caritas Singapore Agape Fund
God's Love in Action Jesus said I give you a new commandment: love one another. As I have loved you, so you also should love one another. John 13:34 The Caritas family strives to make God's love a reality: something real and tangible. When people in need experience that love in action from us in helping them to see that there is more than the brokenness, pain and sadness, that there is hope and a better reality that they can move towards. Charities Week is an annual event organised by Caritas Singapore, the social and community arm of the Catholic Church in Singapore. Caritas Singapore is the umbrella body for 27 Catholic Charities that help the vulnerable and marginalised regardless of race or religion. It is also a member of Caritas Internationalis, a global confederation of over 160 humanitarian organisations. Donations to Charities Week 2020 will help the Caritas Singapore family continue our work on the ground to serve diverse and marginalised groups including low-income families, youths-at-risk, the incarcerated, people with physical disabilities, and also people with mental health problems.
Top-up migrant workers' prepaid SIM cards
by Transient Workers Count Too
EDIT: Thanks a million for your AMAZING support! We've stretched our goal to $50,000 to help even more workers! This campaign was started amidst the Covid-19 situation. Migrant worker dormitories have been hit hard and thousands of workers have been forced to stay in their dormitories. Imagine the stress and anxiety from confinement in close quarters. And the worry from there not being work and no assurance of income. The workers' mobile phones are their lifelines to the outside world, be it to call for help and speak about their problems, or to keep in touch with worried family back home. Some dormitories do not have wifi and therefore, for those who face a lockdown, data for their smartphones becomes critically important. Your donation will help us top up the SIM cards of workers who reach out to us for assistance. TWC2 has setup a WhatsApp helpline to provide migrant workers with casework assistance. A fully functional prepaid line with incoming/outgoing calls enabled and a subscribed data plan is essential for these workers to keep in touch with us. Your donation will go towards TWC2's unrestricted funds, which would allow us to provide direct services such as performing prepaid phone top-ups and even EZ-link card top-ups for workers to make trips to MOM / the hospital (a typical journey from a dorm in Tuas would cost at least $3 one way). Even beyond the Covid-19 situation, this initiative remains important for us to help workers staying far away.

by The Food Bank Singapore Ltd
The impact of COVID-19 has affected The Food Bank Singapore as well as other charities in their ability to provide food and meals to those in need. We are committed to take on the crucial role during such uncertain times to continuously provide food to vulnerable communities and remain fully operational to ensure no one gets left behind. We are issuing a rallying call to sponsors and F&B outlets to come on board Feed the City (Take-Away Edition).

Vulnerable Women's Fund
The COVID-19 pandemic underscores the already stark inequalities experienced by women in areas such as unemployment, housing, caregiving and domestic violence. This March, AWARE received 619 calls - our highest-ever number of monthly calls - with many callers dealing with emotional and psychological distress, violence and abuse. We need your help to ensure that we can continue to provide our services during this period, to aid these women in crisis. Your contribution will go towards: 1. Our Women's Helpline and Sexual Assault Care Centre, which support all women in crisis with counselling, support groups and legal clinics. Domestic violence is known to rise during times of crisis when individuals are forced to stay at home with their abusive partners. With your help, we can step up our capacity to meet the surge in demand. 2. Our S.H.E. Project Shelter provides 10 low-income single mothers and their children with up to 2 years of free, stable housing. Please help us to ensure that these families continue to have stable housing through the outbreak. 3. Our Research and Advocacy work, which carries the voices of the underserved to those who can enact change. Help us to continue taking our findings of how the crisis affects the most vulnerable to the government and other stakeholders to create lasting change. Help us make sure that our community can make it through this pandemic safely even if all you can do is donate and share this page. Read more: tinyurl.com/AWARECOVID

Donate to Bless: 1,000 Families in their time of need during COVID-19
by Methodist Welfare Services
The COVID-19 situation that we are currently in has resulted in extreme anxiety in the community. For the disadvantaged and vulnerable, the anxiety they feel is even greater. Distressed and low-income families may be facing more hardship when they earn less during this time or when they lose their livelihoods. Having little to no savings will likely cause them to experience more stress and go into debt. Many of them rely on part-time and multiple jobs to make ends meet. However, they struggle between heeding advisories to stay home and having jobs that cannot be done remotely. These families are now forced to choose between bringing food to the table and keeping themselves and their families safe. Methodist Welfare Services aims to raise $1.35m to provide financial assistance to 1,000 low-income families for one year. These funds will support them in meeting their basic needs, and having the resources to better prepare for and handle the direct impact brought about by COVID-19 on their lives. Let's stand together with the struggling families in our community!
Sayang Sayang Fund
by The Community Foundation of Singapore
Let Us Continue to Sayang Our Community We have been overwhelmed by the generous show of support for our community-driven Sayang Sayang Fund; from private individual and corporate donors who donated to the fund directly or set up their own fund-raising pages, we have far surpassed our initial target. We have given out transportation vouchers to hospitals and polyclinics and are now looking to support vulnerable communities especially impacted by COVID-19's precautionary measures. Like the seven thousand children from low-income families who are now at risk from losing access to meals provided in school with the implementation of home-based learning. That is our focus now. And that is why the Sayang Sayang Fund remains open, with a new target: to help make sure no one falls by the wayside during this challenging period. We aim to achieve this by: 1. Supporting community-based emergency response funds for marginalised communities adversely affected by the COVID-19 situation. 2. Providing innovation solutions and research to better combat COVID-19. 3. Building capabilities that support charities' operational and/or business continuity processes. Your heart-warming outpouring of love truly brings to life the community spirit of the Sayang Sayang Fund. Thank you for your continuing support. (The Sayang Sayang Fund is a community impact fund to care for the vulnerable in our community during times of national crises.)

Groceries For All #SGUnited
by Children's Wishing Well
In this challenging time of COVID-19, many of our children and families are going through hard times due to the uncertain job climate. Many of our beneficiaries reflected to us that their income has been badly affected and how down they feel. Some may even face a loss of jobs if the economic situation does not improve for them. We would like to ease their financial burdens by providing them with some groceries that can help feed the family. Your donation can go a long way in helping them and making sure they are not left behind in times like these. No contribution is too small. We appreciate your kindness and generosity in helping these families!
