Our Campaign Story

ends 26 Apr 2020, 11:59 PM

Its hard to believe anyone could go hungry in Singapore. However, with the national circuit breaker in place because of COVID-19, thousands of people are losing access to meals. From low-income children amd families to isolated seniors.

As the COVID-19 situation escalates even further, the Sayang Sayang Fund by the #CommunityFoundationOfSingapore seeks to fundraise at least $3 million to support local charities and non-profits to help these impoverished in need.

So, this year, for my birthday, I hope to do my little part: to raise $6000 by 25th April to help these people. Please help me to help them. No present will be greater than this.

If you can, I urged you to pledge half of the $600 if not all from the Care Package you will receive to the cause. You n I are blessed with great family and friends. Let's bless the less fortunate.

About Campaign

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. 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.)
