Singaporeans write letters of encouragement

But fortunately, the Covid-2019 outbreak has also brought out instances of volunteerism and kindness from others.

Some Singaporeans have written heartfelt letters to the workers.

Organisations such as POWER 98 Love Songs and StandUpFor.SG are particularly dedicated to sharing words of encouragement with the front line personnel.

StandUpFor.SG, which started its movement on
