ROY NGERNG: 30% OF S’POREANS LIVE IN POVERTY, THIS IS THE LEGACY

Saw an old lady collecting cardboard just now.

This is the legacy that is left, where 30% of Singaporeans live in poverty and where many Singaporeans still do not earn enough to have a basic standard of living, and where many elderly Singaporeans cannot retire because they were not allowed to save enough inside their CPF pension funds, and where many choose to die because they cannot afford to pay for healthcare, no matter how pretty the hospitals can look.

This is the legacy.

To them, there is no First World country, no riches and wealth. To them, life is a constant struggle, day after day.

If I were to cry, it is for them that my heart goes out to.

These are our founding fathers and mothers but who remembers them?

Roy Ngerng
