NON-PROFIT GROUP PETITIONS MSF TO WAIVE POWER BILLS FOR ELDERLY, DON'T LEAVE THEM IN THE DARK!

A non-profit Happy People Helping People Foundation started a petition to ask the Ministry of Social and Family Development to waive electricity charges for elderly residents in rental flats.

It found out through a survey that many senior citizens have difficulties paying their bills, with some owing money for months. They are unable to pay as they are no longer working or do not earn enough to begin with.

Some tried asked for help but were never given immediate solutions.

The foundation thus asked for MSF to consider their plight and waive electricity charges. It thinks it is unfair to deprive old people of basic needs like lighting because living in the dark will only make them more prone to accidents.

What do you think? To waive or not to waive?

DID PAP INFLATE MEDICAL COSTS TO MAKE ITS SUBSIDIES LOOK GOOD?

Every instance of PAP helping citizens results from PAP first helping itself, ie, PAP KPIs are based on increasing prices of goods and services. For example, PAP increased HDB grants only after it had increased public housing prices multiple times the grants. It’s the same with education, healthcare, etc. This can be confirmed by our polyclinic bills.

RECORD NUMBER OF S'POREANS DEFAULTING ON UNSECURED LOANS & DEBT

Missing two or more months of debt payments may indicate a likely default situation, incurring non-payment penalties as well as interest at as much as 25 per cent per annum – the beginning of the road to possible bankruptcy. As I understand that the 85,352 who didn’t pay do not include those who could not pay licensed and illegal moneylenders – if we include these – are we looking at perhaps over a hundred thousand who may have difficulty paying their debt repayments?
