Our Campaign Story

ends 31 May 2020, 11:59 PM

Hello everyone,

As the government announced a #circuitbreaker to stop the spread of the virus and schools as well as non-necessary services will be closed, I wanted to contribute to Singapore's collective effort and help the community.

I wanted to contribute by practicing mindfulness with my children on a daily basis and by sharing this practice that could help to improve our well-being during these troubled times, and maybe, for the long term as well...

The idea is that during this time when outdoor activities are reduced, we can practice a more introspective activity that could help us manage our anxiety and emotions in the midst of the challenges we are facing at the moment... while contributing to those who are in need.

I have been touched by the Sayang Sayang Fund's mission which has been specially launched to support vulnerable communities such as the elderly and frontline healthcare professionals.

The name Sayang Sayang has been chosen because it is in line with the idea of showing love and appreciation to those who work hard to care for us, as well as to other communities who may be impacted by the COVID-19 situation.

Thank you for reading this and I hope that you will join me in supporting this cause!

About Campaign

The Sayang Sayang Fund is a fund driven by the community to support vulnerable communities adversely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Fund is managed by The Community Foundation of Singapore (CFS), who works with community partners and service agencies to identify these vulnerable communities and care recipients. CFS then endeavours to ensure that no one falls by the wayside during this challenging period, 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.

From small donations to large, whether an individual or corporate donor, it is your heart-warming outpouring of love that truly brings to life the community spirit of the Sayang Sayang Fund. As we slowly return to normalcy, we are keeping the campaign open for those who wish to help those vulnerable groups who still require help recovering from the challenges of the pandemic. And we thank you for your continuing support.

*We thank those who have supported us with their own campaigns for the Sayang Sayang Fund. To consolidate fundraising efforts, we will not be accepting anymore new individual campaigns for this Fund. Thank you.
