Local non-government and social service organisation Babes Pregnancy Crisis Support Limited (Babes) is aiming to raise S$7,000 to help some of its beneficiaries during Ramadan.
In an appeal, which has been posted on its Facebook page and also on Giving.Sg, Babes is asking for donors to provide some support so that it can help the under-resourced families with essential items and basic necessities.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has brought about disruptions to the lives of all Singaporeans and members of the public,” said Christina Vejan, Executive Director of Babes.
“The lower-income families have been worse off, and their livelihoods have been affected by this crisis. We hope to be able to raise some money during this period so that we can give our beneficiaries a little more during this period.”
Many of the teenage girls that Babes are supporting are from needy families where they will need essential items and necessities like food, milk, and diapers for their children.
“The uncertainty of the current situation has thrown many families into a loop but let us stand with those in need in solidarity especially in this season of community and kindness.
“We are raising funds to get food items to as many needy teenage girls and their families – help us lend a helping hand,” added Ms Christina.
Members of the public who intend to make a donation to Babes can do so through Giving.Sg. More details can be found on its website.
