COVID-19, the coronavirus that the World Health Organisation (WHO) had described as a pandemic, has affected many of us in various aspects of our lives. We made adjustments at the workplace and in school, and also adopted new social norms.
This public health crisis has created much anxiety and panic across the world, but it has also brought out the best in many. There are heroes among us who bring cheer and keep us going with their acts of kindness.
We are blessed with the generosity and giving from both strangers and our supporters in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak. A shout out to the good Samaritans who lifted our spirits with encouraging words and gave us peace of mind to work in a safe environment with their donation-in-kind contributions. So, a BIG thank you!
Students of Anglo-Chinese School (Independent), who volunteer at our Day Activity Centre, wrote 32 gratitude cards for our staff, thanking them for stepping up in this time of crisis to care for our clients.
We have also received donations of surgical masks and hand sanitisers from various parties. The thoughtful gesture by our partners Hewlett Packard Enterprise and CMA Arithmetic warmed our hearts and we were equally touched and surprised when Everest Gold Pte Ltd, Ms Michelle Liang, Mr Ken Chew from Sasseur Asset Management, Mr James Ong and others who have reached out and provided us with some supplies.
Such spirit of giving and generosity warms our hearts and is a reminder that such kindness is what we need even more during this difficult period.
