Our Campaign Storyends 20 Jun 2020, 11:59 PM
The 'GovTech for The Courage Fund' supports and provides relief to vulnerable individuals and families, including healthcare and frontline workers affected by the ongoing COVID-19 situation. This campaign is intended for GovTech staff to contribute towards the fund.
The COVID-19 situation has brought about unprecedented times in Singapore's history. In a mere few months, Singapore's economy has been disrupted, with many businesses impacted and Singaporeans' livelihoods at stake. In this ongoing crisis, our frontline medical staff in hospitals and clinics are working relentlessly to combat and contain the virus. This is the time for us to show our #sgunited spirit.
It is in this spirit that GovTech is launching the 'GovTech for The Courage Fund' campaign on giving.sg, in support of The Courage Fund. The Courage Fund, first established in 2003, supports and provides relief to vulnerable individuals and families, including healthcare and frontline workers affected by the ongoing COVID-19 situation.
The evolving COVID-19 situation has affected Singaporeans in one way or another, including individuals who are facing loss of income or families that are struggling with additional caregiving duties and additional expenses for essential items.
The Courage Fund was first established in 2003 when Singapore was hit by the SARS outbreak. Fellow Singaporeans donated generously to the Fund to support those who were affected by the outbreak. In this same spirit of uniting the community to support one another through difficult times, Community Chest is rallying the community to provide relief and support to those affected by the current COVID-19 situation.
