SG United Amidst Adversity
Vulnerable communities among us—such as the homeless community, elderly, people with disabilities, residents of halfway houses, the poor and needy, as well as the guest workers—often face financial difficulties that prevent them from acquiring daily essentials. The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated their difficulties, especially now that they also need surgical masks, hand sanitisers and food supplies.
As part of our nationwide initiative to assist more than 5,000 vulnerable and marginalised individuals amidst the COVID-19 situation, SowCare has partnered with Hope Initiative Alliance to launch SG United Amidst Adversity—an initiative supported by SG United, SG Cares, Singapore Kindness Movement. and Inter-Religious Organisation, Singapore.
Through this initiative, we aim to distribute surgical masks, hand sanitisers and food packs to an estimated 50 partnering organisations. The supplies will be handed over to our partners at the inaugural launch ceremony.
