Our Campaign Story

ends 31 Dec 2021, 11:59 PM

Food - a basic human need. One might be surprised to learn that hunger still exists in a food paradise and wealthy city-state like Singapore. The situation is worsened by COVID-19, which has hit the disadvantaged the hardest, typically the lowest earners in precarious jobs with no social safety-net protection.

According to a study done by the Singapore Management University's Lien Centre for Social Innovation, one in ten Singaporeans experienced food insecurity at least once over 12 months. Out of this, two in five experienced food insecurity at least once a month.

This is APAC Life, an employee-led group within NatWest Markets APAC and we'd like to invite you to give to The Food Bank Singapore.

Your donation can help more than 100,000 families and over 300,000 people with all kinds of food; from fresh to cooked.

Let's put a smile back on their faces this Christmas by supporting this worthy cause. Do share this fundraising page with your friends and family and thank you very much for your help!
