$600 Solidarity Payment: A gift that keeps giving
The COVID-19 crisis is a call to all Singaporeans to stand in solidarity with the vulnerable in our community.
If you are able to, your donation of your Solidarity Payment of $600 will be able to help and provide very tangible assistance to support the livelihoods and basic living expenses of low-income families, vulnerable elderly and workers who have lost their jobs or income due to COVID-19.
We are looking to raise $600,000 by 30 June 2020.
All funds raised from this campaign will be channeled to Community Chest and divided equally to support 3 reputable charities with IPC status and contribute to bridge their funding gap in their respective COVID-19 fundraising campaigns:
- TOUCH: Emergency Relief Fund to support vulnerable elderly, adults with special needs and low-income families
- Association of Muslim Professionals: TAP 2.0 (Temporary Assistance Package 2.0) to assist the families of workers who have been adversely affected by COVID-19 with a reduction or complete loss of income
- Methodist Welfare Services (MWS): Donate-to-Bless to support 1,000 vulnerable families for one year
We are grateful for your generous giving. Thank you for your kindness and spirit of solidarity with fellow Singaporeans.
