Community support is vital in building a resilient society. During the Circuit Breaker period, our community partners have banded together to support families in need and our children and youth requiring rehabilitation and protection.
When the Circuit Breaker measures were announced, EtonHouse Community Fund (ECF) quickly stepped forward to provide more than 50 laptops and 42 Wi-Fi devices for children and youths for their home-based learning (HBL). ECF also donated more than 50,000 surgical masks to our Voluntary Children’s Homes and the Singapore Boy’s Home.
Octava Foundation, together with Foodbank, provided more than 80 families with hot meals and dry rations, and Moove Media provided cardboard tables as a temporary measure for children who needed conducive study spaces while on HBL.
As schools are set to re-open, the contributions from our partners will continue to be useful for our young ones in their learning needs and well-being. Every effort matters in building a resilient and caring society. To our supportive partners, we appreciate and thank you for your contributions!
