Project Belanja - DBS Edition

The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated the need for food and daily essentials among hard-hit communities in Singapore. To do our part in helping those in need, DBS Bank has pledged 100,000 meals for migrant workers via ItsRainingRaincoats. This partnership is funded by our S$10.5 million DBS Stronger Together Fund.

Join us in supporting those in need by sponsoring a meal! We will match dollar-for-dollar, funds donated toward this programme, up to S$250,000. We are Stronger Together.

Says Dipa Swaminathan, founder of ItsRainingRaincoats, "Our team of volunteers has been working around the clock to support any such worker who appeals to us in hunger through Project Belanja. We are hugely fortified in this battle now with the added support of DBS and confident that together we will help our workers and in doing so, help our entire community overcome this crisis."

DBS Stronger Together Fund

The DBS Stronger Together Fund is an SGD 10.5 million fund set up by DBS to help communities, especially the elderly, low-income and migrant workers, impacted by COVID-19 across the region. With this fund, we will provide about 4.5 million meals and care packs, in addition to medical supplies, across the region.

About Campaign

Lift someone's spirits today by treating them to a meal. 100 restaurants have come together for Project Belanja, a meal voucher programme to help the needy in our community. All you have to do is donate and our beneficiaries will receive a voucher that they can exchange for a good meal.

Project Belanja is an initiative by Blossom World Society and the Restaurant Association of Singapore. Our recipients of the meal vouchers are "Daughters of Tomorrow", a charity that supports single mothers from low-income families to access livelihood opportunities. We are expecting more organisations to apply for their beneficiaries.

Showing care and concern for another person can go a long way. We feel that one good way to lighten their load would be to treat them to a hearty meal. In the process, we also generate positive vibes with our community partners!

Project Belanja will run till the end of the year.
