The world is facing another pandemic - COVID-19. This virus has affected millions of people, the way we live, and loss of more than hundreds of thousand people worldwide. In a certain country, there is no sign of slowing down.
Singapore has been fortunate enough to keep the infectious cases and death at minimal. We have been fighting with COVID-19 for around 7 months. The damaged done to our Singapore economy has been severed. Loss of jobs, closure of businesses and suffering of our people during this period.
Since then, our Government has been fighting the virus with us, introduced 4 stimulus packages that sum up almost 100 billion. The budgets focus on supporting the Families, Jobs, Businesses, and our Economy.
Reaching out to all kind souls who are willing to help out and to fight virus with us. Greatly appreciate your contributions.
ALL DONATIONS will go towards supporting and providing relief to vulnerable individuals and families, including healthcare workers, frontline workers and volunteers, affected by the COVID-19 situation.

About Campaign

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.
