This is a way in which the Irish community and businesses in Singapore can make a gesture of solidarity with the people of Singapore as they face the challenge of COVID19. The Embassy is making a cash donation and encouraging Irish companies and individuals to join us.
The evolving novel coronavirus situation in Singapore has affected many Singaporeans, including individuals who may be facing loss of income or families who 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 helping to channel donations to The Courage Fund to enable those in need to tide through the current COVID-19 situation.
Where Will Your Donations Go?
All donations to The Courage Fund will go towards supporting vulnerable individuals and families. These donations will help to provide relief to those who are affected by the COVID-19 situation.
