Singapore Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SICCI) launch the India Covid Relief Fund
Our colleagues at the Singapore Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SICCI) and Little India Shopkeepers Association (LISHA) are coordinating efforts by the community to support India in its fight against Covid-19. They have opened an India Covid Relief Fund account and invite contributions.
SICCI will work with Government agencies in Singapore and India to ensure that the most vulnerable receive the required support. They reached out to the partners of India's Ministry of Health and Family Welfare through the High Commission of India in Singapore to gather information on their most immediate and most urgent priorities, and are also working with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Singapore to coordinate activities.
SICCI’s and LISHA’s initial appeal is focused on emergency response to help to protect the most vulnerable from direct impact due to the rapid spread of Covid-19 and to scale up life-saving protection and assistance in priority states and hospitals in India.
As of now, Indian hospitals urgently needs ventilators and oxygen concentrator devices. Having set up the relief fund account, SICCI and LISHA are the central coordinating and focal point for the mobilisation of resources required by India.
A virtual command centre has been organised for the community to get in touch with SICCI Cares at Mobile/Whatsapp: 96541346, 62222855 (Ms Gowri or Ms Pamela). Donations will be updated (listed) on the Telegram Channel and Website. Please subscribe to India Covid Relief Fund at Telegram Channel at 96541346. Emails can be directed to email@example.com.
