The campaign is funded by the Singapore Strong Fund, which is started by the Majurity Trust. The Singapore Strong Fund is a collective fund that supports ground-up initiatives responding to community needs.

About S$4,000 has been committed to the Pause To Care campaign.

Speaking to Mothership, Vivian Lim, co-founder of Women in Asia, said:

"With the heightened measures and the recent incident at TTSH, findings have shown the impact on health-care front-liners.

At Women In Asia, we care about the implications especially for the women community. Hence we hope to beyond showing our gratitude to healthcare teams, also shed light and remind them on self-care."

The enterprise also hopes to highlight mental health issues faced by healthcare frontline workers by sharing self-care tips, and featuring stories of the strength and resilience exhibited by frontliners throughout this pandemic.



Pause to Care was launched on June 7 and will run until June 18. If you would like to donate to the campaign or collaborate with them, you can drop Women in Asia a direct message on Facebook.
