Community Chest has launched a new initiative, ComChest Care, today with their media partners. The aim of this initiative is to connect needy individuals and families in emergency or crisis (e.g. a family in dire straits after the sudden death of its sole breadwinner) to a lifeline and support via our network of VWOs. Community Chest aims to leverage on its strong contact with the media and VWOs to bring on a timely basis (within 48 hours) help needed by such people in emergency or crisis.
As a community initiative, ComChest will include connection of help to all persons residing in Singapore, including citizens, permanent residents and foreigners. Members of the public can contact the ComChest Carer at 96653221. More information on ComChest Care can also be found on comchest.sg/comchestcare.
