SG Strong fund is very open to consider applications that cover those who fall through the cracks. You guys see possibilities in the small initiatives.
When Singapore underwent the recession in 2008, AMP Singapore responded with their Temporary Assistance Program (TAP) to lend a hand to the community. The various impacts of the COVID-19 spurred the charity organisation to implement TAP 2.0 which targets to provide food rations, daily necessities, and employment support to 100 families.
With the #SGStrong funds, the team has currently shortlisted more than a hundred families and connected them to existing government schemes or social service programs. When we receive their case, we lay out the chart for them. We see what are the areas the government can help, and how we can further levage on the assistance that they are eligible for.
Alongside the #SGStrong funds, AMP also carries out their own crowdfunding efforts and have been encouraged by individuals coming together to lend support. The team still hopes to reach out to as many families as possible, especially those that have not met the criteria for official assistance but still have genuine needs.
Shiffar Khumaira from AMP urges Singaporeans who have desires or ideas to help the community to just go for it, and seek support from organisations.
