We know many frontline and essential heroes are working round the clock to help Singapore push forward.
But as always there are always hidden gems around, waiting for us to discover them. Ready to go on a short adventure with me to find these precious treasures?
SKH Doctor assuring our migrant workers that they are well looked after
With the alarming rate of increase in the number of COVID-19 cases in migrant worker dormitories, it is not surprising that our migrant workers may feel anxious during this trying time.
To reassure these workers, this SKH doctor went out of his way to talk to our migrant workers in their native tongue, promising them that their well-being will be looked after.
This is the video:
SKH has released the translation of what the doctor said here, but let me just touch on some of the points that made my heart melt💕
You are one of us and we will take care of you. Be strong, be confident, drive away your fears. We are here for you.
If you feel unwell, please inform the doctors at the command centre. Do not be afraid and hide things as we are here to help you.
I will tell you that there is nothing to be afraid of as we are already here for all of you. We will be taking care of your health.
Our migrant workers have definitely played a huge part in building Singapore. Now, it’s our turn to give back what we have taken. We hope that the migrant workers are able to stay strong as we show them our support.
If you are able to, here are some ways to support the migrant workers:
- Support SG Photographers’ works, they will then donate the profits to NGOs looking after the well-being of migrant workers
- Donate to support the many NGOs working together to ensure that all needs are met
Young Tots showing their appreciation to essential workers
“The innocence of children is what makes them stand out as a shining example to the rest of Mankind”. Indeed, there is so much we can learn from children albeit their young age.
To show appreciation and support for our frontline and essential workers, these kiddos made cute “Thank You’ posters and pasted it outside their house.

Coloured beautifully with rainbows accompanying the posters, how much sweeter can this get?
We can see how much effort these little kids put into this event from the elaborate and detailed deco 💗
According to the OP, it was the family’s way of expressing their gratitude for all who are working tirelessly in such trying times.
In the OP’s words, “At the end of the day, we are all in this together. Thank you for your sacrifices.”
Aww, sometimes a small act of kindness goes a long way:)
Migrant workers show appreciation for the care and concern they received
With the recent spike in the number of cases in migrant workers’ dorms, Singaporeans from all walks of life have shown our support for them. And thankfully, they have reached the migrant workers.
It’s good to know that the migrant workers are able to feel the warmth and care of Singaporeans and the Singapore Government.
Grabfood Rider offers mask to an uncle who lost his
The recent dispute between a Grabfood rider and a Playmade staff at Waterway Point earned Grabfood riders a bad rep in the online community.
But this story of the Grabfood rider’s kind actions will probably (and hopefully) change the not so positive reputation.

In short, this Grabfood rider offered his spare mask to an uncle who didn’t have one willingly and proactively 🧡Acts like this just melts my heart❣
Let’s learn from him, the next time we see anyone without masks, instead of immediately reporting them, how about offering a mask if we have a spare? Who knows, there may be a legitimate reason as to why they aren’t wearing masks🤷♀️
Free meals for those who need it, just DM!
Hawkers are undeniably one of the groups who are hit the hardest during this trying time. However, it is really heartwarming to see some hawkers put aside their difficulties to help those in need 💙
2 hawkers started a “Beng who cares foundation” to give out protein bowls to those who need it!
All you need to do is drop them a message via Instagram or Facebook before 7pm, and you’ll get a hearty protein bowl delivered to you for free the next day.
Kind-hearted delivery drivers have also volunteered that services to deliver for free to those who really need it💛
Young but already serving the community!
Starting with a canteen stall in NTU, this NTU computer science undergrad’s Bee Hoon business was doing rather well till NTU students were all told to evacuate their dormitories.
Met with this slump, this NTU student decided to make the best of the situation and bring positivity to the community.
Together with his “business buddies”, they decided to help those in need by delivering food to them.
They started a fundraising programme to fund the cost of their ingredients, raising $71,000! (as of writing)
If you want to be part of this good deed too, visit their fundraising website for more info!
They say its during the darkest times that we see stars, I guess that’s true!! Let’s all do our part to make Singapore a livelier and caring community💞
