GE2020: WP Png Eng Huat Exposes The Civil Service For Addressing Unelected PAP Loser As MP Of Hougang

Hougang residents have received letters and replies from Ministry of Education and Ministry of Social And Family Development, which say that the losing and unelected PAP candidate Lee Hong Chuan is the MP of Hougang SMC. This is another insidious way in which the PAP tries to hold on to power.

GOVERNMENT CAN'T JUST SAY IT HELPS THE POOR, MUST SHOW DETAILS OF FINANCIAL AID TOO

The Government should give details of how much aid was given to dispel distrust in our welfare system. Why is it that half of those who applied for ComCare did not qualify for it? If the Government claims it is indeed helping the poor, then it should jolly well be transparent and disclose details of how much financial assistance they are giving. Without more transparency, people will have the impression that they are falling through the cracks or that the Government may not be doing enough.

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?

MORE YOUNG S'POREANS JOINING RANKS OF HOMELESS PEOPLE

“We are seeing more younger people, those in their 50s instead of their 60s and 70s, camping at Starbucks, McDonald’s, Internet and gaming cafes, libraries and other urban spaces, as these are places where people hang out and it is not immediately obvious that they are homeless,” he added.”
