In Singapore, 3i’s donation has supported the following funds and organisations:
The Sayang Sayang Fund aims to support vulnerable communities adversely impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. The Fund is managed by The Community Foundation of Singapore, which works with community partners and service agencies to identify these vulnerable communities and care recipients.
The Sayang Sayang Fund was initially set up to support frontline healthcare workers battling Covid-19 cases in the community. The Fund subsequently expanded its scope to support charities and non-profits, providing emergency response funds which enable immediate and short-term relief to those adversely affected by the Covid-19 situation. The Fund’s initiatives include providing meal subsidies for students in need, supporting vulnerable seniors, aiding rough sleepers to find temporary accommodation, supporting Singapore’s migrant community and helping local social enterprises which provide employment or services to marginalised communities.
The Courage Fund was established in 2003 when Singapore was hit by the SARS outbreak. In the 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.
Donations go towards supporting and providing relief to vulnerable individuals and families, including healthcare workers, frontline workers and volunteers, affected by the Covid-19 situation.
